BILL NUMBER:S2951

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to legalize, validate, ratify and confirm certain transportation
contracts of the Garden City union free school district

PURPOSE:
The purpose of this bill is to legalize transportation
contracts for the Garden City School District for the 2004-2005,
2005-2006, and 2006-2007 school years.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation legalizes transportation
contracts for the Garden City school district for the 2004-2005,
2005-2006, and 2006-2007 school years.
This bill enables the Garden City School District to retain its
transportation aid for the aforementioned years.

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation is a special act to authorize the
distribution of state transportation aid for certain omitted
contracts. Garden City School District had contracts for
transportation services, during the 2004-2005, 2005-2006, and
2006-2007 school years, which were, inadvertently, not filed to the
State Education Department for transportation aid.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.3144 of 2009
S.8269A of 2008

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
