Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5364

TITLE OF BILL: An act to repeal paragraph d of subdivision 4 of section 3641 of the education law relating to a school district's requirement to report on the status of asbestos

PURPOSE: To provide administrative relief to local school districts and the New York State Education Department be repealing onerous state asbestos reporting requirements beyond federal requirements.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Repeals paragraph d of subdivision 4 of section 3641 of the education law relating to a school district's requirement to report on the status of asbestos.

Section 2: Sets forth an immediate effective date.

EXISTING LAW: None.

JUSTIFICATION: Recent years have confronted school districts with unprecedented fiscal challenges. While the economic outlook for the state is steadily improving, it is a legislative priority to provide as much flexibility as possible to school districts to enable them to provide the high quality education we have come to expect for our students. While there are many requirements imposed on school districts that provide educational value, others continue to constrain the creativity of a district to provide services to students and relief to taxpayers.

Providing for the health and safety of students in our public school buildings is vitally important. This bill continues to protect students from the potential dangers of asbestos, but relieves an administrative burden by eliminating state reporting requirements beyond those required by the federal Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Potential savings to local school districts and the New York State Education Department.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
