BILL NUMBER:S3141

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend subpart F of part C of chapter 97 of the
laws of 2011 amending the education law relating to census reporting, in
relation to making permanent certain provisions authorizing a school
district to provide student transportation based upon patterns of actual
ridership

PURPOSE: This bill would make permanent changes to student transporta-
tion based upon patterns of ridership.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - Amends Section 26 subpart F of part C of chapter 97 of the
laws of 2011 to permanently extend the option to school district's to
reduce the number of seats available on bus transportation based on
patterns of actual ridership. Nothing in this section will reduce the
number of seats available for students currently in need of transporta-
tion.

Section 2 - Sets the enacting date.

JUSTIFICATION: Prior to 2011, many school districts had complaints that
they were required to provide under existing law many more seats on bus
transportation that are actually needed as evidenced by student rider-
ship. Schools are experiencing budget cuts and more pressure than ever
to save money and seek efficiencies. As part of chapter 97 of the laws
of 2011, the option for school districts to reduce the number of seats
available to students on bus transportation based on patterns of rider-
ship was implemented and set to expire on June 30, 2014. This bill will
continue the efforts for mandate relief by extending this provision and
keening this cost saving measure available for school districts perma-
nently.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
