AN  ACT to amend the education law, in relation to education cooperative
  contracts

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Section  1709 of the education law is amended by adding a
new subdivision 43 to read as follows:
  43. NOTWITHSTANDING THE PROVISIONS OF SUBDIVISION FOURTEEN OF  SECTION
THREE  HUNDRED  FIVE  OF  THIS CHAPTER, SECTION ONE HUNDRED THREE OF THE
GENERAL MUNICIPAL LAW, OR ANY OTHER PROVISION OF LAW  TO  THE  CONTRARY,
THE  BOARD OF EDUCATION SHALL BE AUTHORIZED TO ENTER INTO A "COOPERATIVE
CONTRACT" WITH ANOTHER SCHOOL DISTRICT, A COUNTY, MUNICIPALITY, BOARD OF
EDUCATIONAL SERVICES, THE STATE OR ANY DIVISION OR AGENCY OF THE  STATE,
FOR  ANY  SERVICE,  GOOD OR PRODUCT IT HAS THE DUTY OR POWER TO PROVIDE,
PROVIDED THAT THE BOARD FINDS THAT THE CONTRACT COST IS APPROPRIATE  AND
ENTRY INTO A "COOPERATIVE CONTRACT" WILL RESULT IN A COST SAVINGS TO THE
SCHOOL  DISTRICT.  FOR  PURPOSES  OF  THIS  SUBDIVISION,  A "COOPERATIVE
CONTRACT" MEANS A CONTRACT FOR A SERVICE, GOOD OR PRODUCT  THAT  ANOTHER
SCHOOL  DISTRICT,  COUNTY,  MUNICIPALITY, BOARD OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICES,
STATE OR DIVISION OR AGENCY OF THE STATE IS ALREADY PROVIDING THROUGH AN
EXISTING CONTRACT.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
