BILL NUMBER:S5822

TITLE OF BILL: An act relating to the cost allowance used to compute
aid for capital improvement projects for the South Country central
school district

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would restore $1,17
Million in building aid to the South Country Central School District
(CSD).

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Restores $1.17 million in building
aid to the South Country CSD in relation to certain green energy
projects.

JUSTIFICATION: The South Country CSD made green energy improvements
to school district buildings in the form of solar power installations
(six projects in all). The goal was two-fold: The district was
fulfilling the wishes of the community, which had approved a bond for
the purpose, "to go green," and the district would realize savings
from the effort for the community in the form of incentives through
LIPA's Solar Pioneer Program. The incentives and savings, however,
were nullified when the State Education Department reduced building
aid for the six projects by a total of $1.17. The South Country CSD
was not aware that these reductions would occur at the time they
contracted for the improvements.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
