BILL NUMBER:S6155

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize approval of certain transportation contracts of the
Port Chester-Rye union free school district

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To amend the education law, in reference to certain acts of the Port
Chester - Rye union free school district regarding transportation
contracts for the 2007-2008 school year. The following contracts were
not included in an earlier bill but are now ready to be paid. They
are contracts C-260277 for the amount of $1,650.00 and C-260278 for
the amount of $6,288.65.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section § 1 ratifies the Education law in to legalize, validate,
ratify and confirm notwithstanding any failure to comply with the
contract award.

Section § 2 directs the transportation aid as valid and proper.

Section § 3 requires that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Port Chester - Rye union free school district followed proper
procedures for public notification regarding the awarding of
transportation contracts for the 2007-2008 school years.
Unfortunately, the newspaper of record erred and did not publish the
notification as per their agreement with the school district. The
error resulted in the awarding of the transportation contracts
without full compliance with the required notice provisions. This
legislation is required for the school district to receive the
appropriate transportation aid as they would otherwise be entitled to
under state law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-2010: A.9723-A (Latimer) Passed Assembly. S.6466 (Oppenheimer)
Passed Senate, Vetoed (Memo 6792)
2007-2008: A.9449-(Latimer)
Referred to Education. S.6478 (Oppenheimer) Passed Senate

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
