   Section  1.  This act shall be known and may be cited as the "New York
 state residential real property tax relief act for public education."
   § 2. Legislative findings. The  legislature  finds  that  the  current
 primary  and  secondary education funding system, which is based largely
 upon real property taxation, is antiquated and creates serious  dispari-
 ties  in  educational opportunity and inequities with regard to distrib-
 ution of the system's financial burden. The quality  of  education  that
 children  receive varies widely by geographic region, as does the oppor-
 tunity for children to participate in extracurricular  activities.    In
 addition, taxpayers throughout the state receive real property tax bills
 from  their  local  school  districts based on the value of their homes,
 which is subject to multiple factors beyond their control,  rather  than
 their financial ability to pay, creating serious regional distortions in
 the  relative  cost  of  living.  The legislature further finds that our
 children should not be penalized based upon the geographic  location  of
 their home, nor should financial support for the educational system fall
 more heavily on those who are less able to bear the burden. The legisla-
 ture  therefore  must  take  immediate action to provide relief to those
 areas most impacted by these disparities through the residential proper-
 ty tax relief aid determined through a residential property  tax  relief
 aid  formula.  The legislature further orders an education funding study
 to examine long-term funding alternatives  for  the  state  primary  and
