Introduced  by  Sen.  YOUNG  -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Education

AN ACT to validate certain acts of the Fredonia central school  district
  with regard to a certain capital improvement project


  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds  that  the
Fredonia  central school district approved a capital improvement project
which is designated project number 06-22-01-06-009-008. In addition, the
project was eligible for certain  state  aid.  The  legislature  further
finds  that  due  to ministerial error, the required filing of the final
cost report for such project was not made by such district in  a  timely
manner  making  the district ineligible for certain aid. The legislature
further finds that without such aid,  the  capital  improvement  project
will impose an additional, unanticipated hardship on district taxpayers.
  S  2.  All  the  acts done and proceedings heretofore had and taken or
caused to be had or taken by the Fredonia central school district and by
all its officers or agents relating to or in connection with  a  certain
final  cost  report  to be filed with the state education department for
project 06-22-01-06-009-008, and all acts incidental thereto are  hereby
legalized,  validated, ratified and confirmed, notwithstanding any fail-
ure to comply with the approval and filing provisions of  the  education
law  or  any  other  law or any other statutory authority, rule or regu-
lation, 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 Fredonia central school  district  for
school  years prior to the 2011-2012 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.
  S 3. The education department  is  hereby  directed  to  consider  the
approved  cost of the aforementioned project as a valid and proper obli-
gation of the Fredonia central school district.
  S 4. This act shall take effect immediately.
