AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the effect  of  failed
  propositions  on voter approval for remaining propositions not collec-
  tively exceeding the tax levy limit; to amend  the  general  municipal
  law  and  the education law, in relation to payments in lieu of taxes;
  and to amend the education law, in relation to exempting BOCES capital
  expenditures from limitations upon local school district tax levies

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  9 of section 2023-a of the education law, as
added by section 2 of part A of chapter 97  of  the  laws  of  2011,  is
amended to read as follows:
  9.  Nothing  in  this section shall preclude the trustee, trustees, or
board of education of a  school  district,  in  their  discretion,  from
submitting  additional  items of expenditures to the voters for approval
as separate propositions or  the  voters  from  submitting  propositions
pursuant  to sections two thousand eight and two thousand thirty-five of
this part; provided however, except in the case of a proposition submit-
ted for any expenditure contained within subparagraphs (i) through  (iv)
of  paragraph  i of subdivision two of this section, if any proposition,
or propositions collectively that are subject to  a  vote  on  the  same
date,  would  require  an  expenditure of money that would require a tax
levy and would result in the tax  levy  limit  being  exceeded  for  the
corresponding  school  year  then  such proposition shall be approved if
sixty percent of the votes cast thereon are in the affirmative.  IN  THE
EVENT  THAT  THE  VOTERS  SUBMIT  ADDITIONAL  ITEMS  OF  EXPENDITURE FOR
APPROVAL AS A SEPARATE PROPOSITION OR  PROPOSITIONS  AND  SUCH  SEPARATE
PROPOSITION  OR PROPOSITIONS COLLECTIVELY WITH THE BUDGET EXCEED THE TAX
LEVY LIMIT, THE BUDGET SHALL BE APPROVED IF A MAJORITY OF THE VOTES CAST
THEREON ARE IN THE AFFIRMATIVE AND IF THE BUDGET, WITHOUT  THE  SEPARATE
PROPOSITION OR PROPOSITIONS, DOES NOT EXCEED THE TAX LEVY LIMIT.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
