BILL NUMBER:S5031A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to provide for the payment of public high cost excess cost aid for the
2008-2009 school year to the Wyandanch union free school district

PURPOSE:
This bill provides for the expeditious payment of public high cost
excess cost aid for the 2008-2009 school year to the Wyandanch union
free school district.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill requires the New York State Education Department
to pay to Wyandanch UFSD the 2008-2009 public high cost excess aid
that it is entitled to from the supplemental aid payable during the
2011-2012 state fiscal year prior to the payment of supplemental aid
to any other school district.

Section 2 of the bill contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Wyandanch UFSD, through administrative oversight, failed to apply
for its NYS Department of Education 2008-2009 "public high cost
excess cost aid" worth approximately $1.5 Million. The District is
currently facing considerable lay-offs and the receipt of the
aforementioned aid in the 2001-2012 school year would allow many of
those jobs to be saved.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None. These monies are already designated to be paid by the Department
of Education.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Timely infusion of $1,500,000 to the Wyandanch UFSD.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Notwithstanding the provisions in subdivision 5 of section
3602 of the education law or any other provision of law to the contrary,
with regard to the payment of public high cost excess cost aid  for  the
2008-2009  school  year to the Wyandanch union free school district, the
failure of such school district to timely apply therefor  shall  not  be
deemed  to  prohibit  or  impede  the  education  department from making
payment of such aid in a timely manner. The education  department  shall
pay  such  public  high cost excess cost aid to the Wyandanch union free
school district for the 2008-2009 school year  from  funds  appropriated
