AN ACT to validate certain acts  of  the  Mount  Morris  central  school
  district with regard to certain capital improvement projects


  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds  that  the
Mount  Morris  central  school district approved two capital improvement
projects which are designated as project number 0001-005 and as  project
number  0001-006.  In  addition,  the projects were eligible for certain
state aid. The legislature further finds that due to ministerial  error,
the required filing of the final cost reports for such projects were not
made  by such district in a timely manner making the district ineligible
for certain aid. The legislature further finds that  without  such  aid,
the  capital  improvement  projects  will impose an additional, unantic-
ipated hardship on district taxpayers.
  § 2. All the acts done and proceedings heretofore  had  and  taken  or
caused  to  be  had or taken by the Mount Morris central 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 number 0001-005 and project number  0001-006,  and  all
acts  incidental  thereto  are hereby legalized, validated, ratified and
confirmed, notwithstanding any failure to comply with the  approval  and
filing  provisions  of  the  education law or any other law or any other
statutory authority, rule or regulation, in relation to  any  omissions,
error,  defect,  irregularity  or illegality in such proceedings had and
taken, and provided further that any amount due and payable to the Mount
Morris central school district for school years prior to  the  2014-2015
school  year  as  a  result  of  this  act shall be paid pursuant to the
provisions of paragraph c of subdivision 5 of section 3604 of the educa-
tion law.
