BILL NUMBER:S780

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize approval of certain transportation contracts of the
Massapequa union free
school district

PURPOSE:
To amend the education law, in reference to certain acts
of the Massapequa Union Free School District regarding transportation
contracts for the 2008-2009 through 2011-2012 school years.

SUMMARY OF 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 Massapequa Union Free School District followed
proper procedure in completing transportation contracts from
2008-2009 through 2011-2012. Unfortunately, a former employee failed
to submit the contracts to the State Education Department in a timely
manner. In response, Massapequa has provided to SED all of the
necessary paperwork required to file for transportation contracts,
demonstrating their intent to follow the proper procedures. However
SED is unable to accept these contracts because they were not filed
on time, this legislation is necessary to enable SED to award these
contracts. This legislation is required for the school district to
receive the appropriate transportation aid as they would otherwise be
entitled to under state law.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2012: Passed the Senate (S.7681/A.10655A)

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
