BILL NUMBER:S3874

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to legalize, validate, ratify and confirm certain transportation
contracts of the Greenport public school district

PURPOSE:
To validate shared busing transportation contracts between the
Greenport public school district and private contractors for school
years 2001-2004 that were disapproved by the New York State Education
Department through clerical error.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This section also cures any errors or omissions made by the Greenport
public school district as relates to the submission of these
contracts to the New York State Education Department for approval.

Section 2 states that the new York State Education Department shall
treat the above mentioned transportation contracts as valid and
proper obligations of the Greenport public school district.

Section 3 states that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
Through administrative error, numerous transportation contracts for
shared busing services between the Greenport public school district
and transportation contractors were not approved by the New York
State Education Department due to the fact that there was missing
documentation required to approve these contracts. The Greenport
public school district was unaware of the fact that this
documentation was missing and as such, they continued to enter into
contracts with these private contractors under the erroneous belief
that the contracts were being approved. This legislation will simply
reimburse the Greenport public school district for expenses that
otherwise would have been approved in the absence of administrative
error.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-10, S.1717; S.2007-08, S.7951A.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.
