Amend the Pitts amendment to CSHB 1 (amendment packet page 6) by striking the last three sentences of the amendment and substituting the following:
The remaining amounts shall be distributed through a formula based on:
(1)  geographic considerations; and
(2)  school districts serving less than 1600 students and open-enrollment charter schools.
The formula for distribution shall be determined by the commissioner but shall provide enhanced funding to regional education service centers that primarily serve small and rural school districts. The commissioner shall obtain approval for the distribution formula from the Legislative Budget Board and the governor.
