In a Section concerning a school board's power to levy a tax or borrow money and issue bonds for fire prevention, safety, energy conservation, disabled accessibility, school security, and specified repair purposes, makes changes concerning a school district's authority to replace a school building or build additions to replace portions of a building. With respect to one of the exceptions to a school district's debt limitation, allows additional indebtedness by the execution of a lease with a public building commission; makes related changes. Removes references that limit provisions to just the Chicago school district with respect to (i) the prohibition on the State Board of Education and the Capital Development Board establishing standards that disapprove or otherwise establishing limitations that restrict the eligibility of a school district for a school construction project grant based on certain facts and (ii) the authority of a school district to use school construction project grants for certain purposes.
