BILL NUMBER:S3861

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the local finance law, in relation to
contents of notice of meeting or election where special tax or tax to
be collected in installments is to be voted on

PURPOSE: To require that the estimated total interest costs
associated with a bond resolution or capital note resolution be added
to the contents of notice of meeting or election where special tax or
tax to be collected in installments is to be voted on.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends Section 41.10 of the local finance law by adding
"where the estimated total cost of all of the items includes, and
lists, the estimated total interest costs associated with the bond
resolution or capital note resolution; provided, however, with regard
to school districts, the cost of providing such total interest costs
shall be minimized to the greatest extent possible."

Section 2 of this bill provides for an immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently school districts are not required to
disclose estimated interest costs during capital projects to voters.
This legislation would require school districts to disclose this
estimated interest cost, similar to the way a bank is required to
disclose interest cost to homeowners applying for mortgages.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S5204A of 2011/2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal or None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
