    5  insert:
    6         Section 21. Subsection (1) of section 1013.385, Florida
    7  Statutes, is amended to read:
    8         1013.385 School district construction flexibility.—
    9         (1) A district school board may, with a majority
   10  supermajority vote at a public meeting that begins no earlier
   11  than 5 p.m., adopt a resolution to implement one or more of the
   12  exceptions to the educational facilities construction
   13  requirements provided in this section. Before voting on the
   14  resolution, a district school board must conduct a cost-benefit
   15  analysis prepared according to a professionally accepted
   16  methodology that describes how each exception selected by the
   17  district school board achieves cost savings, improves the
   18  efficient use of school district resources, and impacts the
   19  life-cycle costs and life span for each educational facility to
   20  be constructed, as applicable, and demonstrates that
   21  implementation of the exception will not compromise student
   22  safety or the quality of student instruction. The district
   23  school board must conduct at least one public workshop to
   24  discuss and receive public comment on the proposed resolution
   25  and cost-benefit analysis, which must begin no earlier than 5
   26  p.m. and may occur at the same meeting at which the resolution
   27  will be voted upon.
