AN ACT to amend the state finance law, in relation to changing the state
  fiscal year from the first of April to the first of June and requiring
  revisions  of  the  consensus  forecast  of  the economy, estimates of
  receipts for the current and the ensuing state  fiscal  year  and  the
  joint  report  of  the director of the budget and the secretary of the
  senate finance committee and the secretary of the  assembly  ways  and
  means  committee, and directing the state comptroller to provide esti-
  mates for receipts for the  current and ensuing state fiscal year; and
  to amend the education law, in relation to the timing  and  notice  of
  annual  elections in school districts and the submission of a property
  tax report card and the calculation of the  fiscal  year  for  certain
  school districts


  Section 1. Section 3 of the state finance law, as added by  chapter  1
of the laws of 1943 and as separately renumbered by chapters 405 and 957
of the laws of 1981, is amended to read as follows:
  §  3.  Fiscal  year.  1.  The  current  fiscal year of the state which
commenced with the first  day  of  [July,  nineteen  hundred  forty-two]
APRIL,  TWO  THOUSAND  EIGHTEEN, is hereby [abridged] EXTENDED and shall
end with the thirty-first day of [March, nineteen  hundred  forty-three]
MAY,  TWO  THOUSAND  NINETEEN.    For all purposes of determining annual
increments of state employees pursuant to the education law,  the  civil
service  law  or  other  state law, and for all purposes whenever by law
some act is to be performed or time is to be measured by the fiscal year
of the state, the current fiscal year, as so [abridged] EXTENDED,  shall
be  deemed  to  be  a  full  year  unless the context clearly requires a
contrary construction.
