AN ACT to validate certain acts of the  Newburgh  Enlarged  city  school
  district  and  the  Chester  Union Free school district with regard to
  certain capital improvement projects

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

  Section  1.  Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds that the
Newburgh Enlarged city  school  district  approved  capital  improvement
projects  which  are  designated  as  project  numbers  441600-0003-010,
441600-0006-006,  441600-0009-004,   441600-0010-004,   441600-0018-002,
441600-0018-004,   441600-0022-001,   441600-0023-005,  441600-0035-007,
441600-0036-007 and 441600-0001-011.   The  legislature  further  hereby
finds  that  the Chester Union Free school district approved two capital
improvement  projects  which   are   designated   as   project   numbers
44020102-0001-005 and 44020102-0009-001.  In addition, the projects were
eligible for certain state aid. The legislature finds that due to minis-
terial  error,  the  required  filing of the final cost reports for such
projects were not made by such districts in a timely manner  making  the
districts ineligible for certain aid. The legislature further finds that
without  such aid, the capital improvement projects will impose an addi-
tional, unanticipated hardship on the district's taxpayers.
  § 2. a. All the acts done and proceedings heretofore had and taken  or
caused  to be had or taken by the Newburgh Enlarged city school district
and by all its officers or agents relating to or in  connection  with  a
certain  final  cost report to be filed with the state education depart-
ment for project numbers 441600-0003-010, 441600-0006-006,  441600-0009-
004, 441600-0010-004, 441600-0018-002, 441600-0018-004, 441600-0022-001,
441600-0023-005,  441600-0035-007,  441600-0036-007 and 441600-0001-011,
and all acts incidental thereto are hereby legalized,  validated,  rati-
fied  and  confirmed,  notwithstanding  any  failure  to comply with the
