($1,989,867) made to the Johnson City central school district in various

and 2019; provided, however, there shall be no interest penalty assessed
against  such district or collected by the state; and provided, further,

payment  of moneys due to such district as a prior year adjustment paya-
ble pursuant to paragraph c of subdivision 5  of  section  3604  of  the
education  law for aid claims that had been previously paid in excess as
current year aid payments for which recovery of excess payments is to be

payment  by  any  remaining unrecovered balance of such excess payments,
and the remaining scheduled deductions of such excess payments  pursuant
to  this  section  shall  be reduced by the commissioner of education to
reflect the amount so recovered.
