Memo

 BILL NUMBER:  S6466A

TITLE OF BILL : An act to authorize approval of certain transportation contracts of the Port Chester-Rye union free school district

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL : To amend the education law, in reference to certain acts of the Port Chester - Rye union free school district regarding transportation contracts for the 2007-2008 school year. The following contracts were not included in an earlier bill but are now ready to be paid. They are contracts C-260277 for the amount of $1,650.00 and C-260278 for the amount of $6,288.65.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS : Section § 1 ratifies the Education law in to legalize, validate, ratify and confirm notwithstanding any failure to comply with the contract award;

Section § 2 directs the transportation aid as valid and proper.

Section § 3 requires that this act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION : The Port Chester - Rye union free school district followed proper procedures for public notification regarding the awarding of transportation contracts for the 2007-2008 school years. Unfortunately, the newspaper of record erred and did not publish the notification as per their agreement with the school district. The error resulted in the awarding of the transportation contracts without full compliance with the required notice provisions. This legislation is required for the school district to receive the appropriate transportation aid as they would otherwise be entitled to under state law.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS : Minimal.

EFFECTIVE DATE : This act shall take effect immediately.
