BILL NUMBER:S6145

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to authorize approval of certain transportation contracts of the
Mamaroneck union free school district

PURPOSE:

To amend the education law, in reference to certain acts of the
Mamaroneck Union Free School District regarding transportation
contract (C-412087 for the projected amount of $70,055) for the
2008-2009 school year. This bill would provide that such contract,
which was unfairly denied, would be paid.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section One of this bill would amend the Education law in to legalize,
validate, ratify and confirm notwithstanding any failure to comply
with the award for contract C-412087.

Section Two of this bill would classify the transportation aid as
valid and proper.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Mamaroneck Union Free School District followed proper procedures
for public notification regarding the awarding of transportation
contracts for the 2008-2009. Unfortunately, however, the newspaper of
record erred and did not publish the notification as per their
agreement with the school district. As a result, the State Education
Department denied the contract because the ad never appeared in the
paper. In response, Mamaroneck provided receipts to SED demonstrating
their intent to follow the proper procedures. SED, however, would
still not award the contract,

This legislation is necessary to enable SED to award the contracts as
the school district did act in full compliance with the required
notice provisions. This legislation is required for the school
district to receive the appropriate transportation aid as they would
otherwise be entitled to under state law.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Minimal.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2011: S.3467 - Passed Senate and Assembly, Veto No. 61

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
