S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 6141 I N S E N A T E January 5, 2012 ___________ Introduced by Sen. ZELDIN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Education AN ACT directing the education department to issue certain state aid to the Central Islip union free school district for certain capital construction projects THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds that the Central Islip Union Free School District approved several capital improvement projects which were designated by the State Education Department as project numbers 0002-006, 0003-008, 0005-007, 0006-005, 0007-006, 0008-007 and 0004-005. In addition, the projects were eligi- ble for certain state aid. The legislature further finds that due to ministerial error, required filings for eligibility for such aid were not made by the district in a timely manner making the district ineligi- ble for certain aid. The legislature further finds that without such aid, the capital improvement projects will impose an additional, unan- ticipated hardship on district taxpayers. S 2. All the acts done and proceedings heretofore had and taken or caused to be had and taken by the Central Islip Union Free School District and by all its officers or agents relating to or in connection with certain final cost reports to be filed with the state education department for projects 0002-006, 0003-008, 0005-007, 0006-005, 0007-006, 0008-007 and 0004-005, and all acts incidental thereto, are hereby legalized, validated, ratified and confirmed, notwithstanding any failure to comply with the approval and filing provisions of the educa- tion law or any other law or any other statutory authority, rule or regulation, in relation to any omissions, error, defect, irregularity or illegality in such proceedings had and taken and provided further that any amount due and payable to the Central Islip Union Free School District for school years prior to the 2012--2013 school year as a result of this act shall be paid pursuant to the provisions of paragraph c of subdivision 5 of section 3604 of the education law.
