BILL NUMBER:S5607 REVISED 06/08/11

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

PURPOSE:
Legalizes, validates, ratifies, and confirms certain transportation
contracts of Hamburg Central School District.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill rectifies submission errors made by Hamburg Central School
district when filing transportation agreements from the 2005-06
school year.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Hamburg Central School District made an error in submitting
transportation contracts for the 2005-2006 school year, and as a
result, the State Department of Education did not approve them. In
order for Hamburg Central to receive the correct amount of state
transportation aid these past contract numbers must now be validated
through special legislation.
Failure to receive reimbursement of the transportation contract costs
would create undue fiscal hardship to the school district and its
students.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010: S.7915/A.11125, Passed Senate (61-0), Passed Assembly (134-2),
Vetoed by Governor (Memo No. 6830)
2009: S.2841-B/A.7991-A, Passed Senate (58-0), Passed Assembly (140-0),
Vetoed by Governor (Memo No. 56)
2007-08: A.11647-A

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
This bill would legalize, validate, ratify and confirm certain
transportation contracts for the Hamburg central school district. All
such contracts listed in this bill have already been approved,
claimed and aided by the state education department. Therefore, there
would be no fiscal impact on the department from this bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
