Senator Foley Reduces Fiscal Burden on Vocational Education and Extension Boards

Senator Brian X. Foley (D – Blue Point) announced the passage of legislation that would change the way in which state aid overpayments to county vocational education and extension boards (CVEEB) are recovered.

The legislation does away with the current practice of requiring the boards to return overpayments but cutting a check to the state in one lump sum, which places a great deal of fiscal strain on the boards.
