For federal audit actions that became final by entry of judgment or final administrative decision on or after July 1, 1987, and that require repayment of funds to the federal government by the State Department of Education for federal audit exceptions based on findings in any school district or any other agency receiving federal funds through the department, the amount of the repayments, with interest due the federal government, may be deducted from the apportionment made to those districts or agencies by the Superintendent of Public Instruction. The amount that is repaid to the state under the provisions of Section 459 of the General Education Provisions Act (20. Sec. 1234h) shall be apportioned to the district in accordance with any grant back plan submitted by the district and the department and approved by the United States Department of Education.
