(1) The first four hundred eighty-three million sixteen thousand dollars ($483,016,000) in payment of the outstanding balance of the minimum funding obligation for the 2002-03 fiscal year.

(2) The next six hundred seventeen million five hundred seventy-four thousand dollars ($617,574,000) in payment of the outstanding balance of the minimum funding obligation for the 2003-04 fiscal year.

(b) For purposes of this section, the outstanding balance of the minimum funding obligation to school districts and community college districts pursuant to Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution for a fiscal year is the amount, if any, by which the amount required to be applied by the state for the support of school districts and community college districts pursuant to Section 8 of Article XVI of the California Constitution, including any maintenance factor that should have been allocated in that fiscal year pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 8 of Article XVI, exceeds the amount applied by the state for the support of school districts and community college districts for that fiscal year.
