A funding application that received an apportionment under Chapter 12 or Chapter 12.5 may not be rescinded and re-approved under the provisions of any amended law or administrative regulation unless specifically authorized by other applicable law.

A funding application, with the exception of funding applications identified in Subsection (a) below, that has received an approval pursuant to Section 1859.95, but has not received an apportionment, may receive an adjustment as allowed under Sections 1859.71, 1859.71.2(c), 1859.78.4(b) or 1859.78 at the time the apportionment is made. If the adjustment is a result of Sections 1859.71.2(c) or 1859.78.4(b), the district must submit an amended Form SAB 50-04. The amended application shall retain its OPSC processing date. No other adjustments may be made, including those resulting from changes to the regulations prior to final funding by the SAB. As an alternative, the application may be withdrawn and resubmitted for SAB approval under the provisions of any amended or new regulation that becomes effective prior to the apportionment for the project. The district must first request from the OPSC that the application be withdrawn and removed from the Unfunded List. The district may then resubmit the application to the OPSC under the provisions of the amended or new regulation once it is effective. The resubmitted application will receive a new processing date by the OPSC. School districts that have already received a site apportionment under Section 1859.81.1(a) may withdraw the application and file as an environmental hardship pursuant to Section 1859.75.1 without forfeiting their original site apportionment, provided that the new application does not exceed the amount already apportioned.

A funding application, with the exception of funding applications identified in Subsection (a) below, submitted to the OPSC that has not received an approval will receive funding under the provisions of the regulations that were in effect when the application was submitted to the OPSC and any funding adjustment authorized by Sections 1859.71.2(c) or 1859.78.4(b). If the funding adjustment is a result of Sections 1859.71.2(c) or 1859.78.4(b), the district must submit an amended Form SAB 50-04. The amended application shall retain its OPSC processing date. At the option of the district, a funding application submitted to the OPSC that has not received an approval may be withdrawn and resubmitted for SAB approval under the provisions of any amended or new regulation once it is effective. The district must request that the application be withdrawn and removed from the OPSC workload list. The resubmitted application will receive a new processing date by the OPSC.

At the option of the district, an Approved Application for Career Technical Education Facilities Project Funding submitted to OPSC prior to January 1, 2012 may be resubmitted for the purpose of requesting the funding as prescribed in Section 1859.71.6 or Section 1859.77.4, as applicable. To request that funding, the district must submit an amended Form SAB 50-10 at least 90 days prior to requesting an Apportionment pursuant to Section 1859.90.1 or 1859.90.2 or receiving an Apportionment pursuant to Section 1859.195.
