A05631 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5631
 
SPONSOR: Curran
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to the computing of the tax effort ratio for the central high school district for the purposes of state school aid   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: Allows central high school districts the authority use the component school district's tax information when applying for State school aid.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 adds language to Subdivision 16 of Section 3602 of the Educa- tion Law to allow central high school districts to use from each common and/or union free school within the central high school district, the property tax levy and adjusted gross income information when computing the tax effort ratio for the central high school district for the purposes of State school aid. Section 2 provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: A central high school district is a school district that provides only secondary education to children from two or more common or union free school districts. Central high school district taxes are levied by the component school districts on behalf of the central high school district and not directly by the school district. As a result, some State aid formulas negatively reduce State aid to central high school districts because these school districts do not have property tax levy and adjust gross income information. This legislation will allow central high school districts to utilize the property tax and income information for State aid formulas and reduce the potential shortfall in State school aid.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2015-2016: Referred to education.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect July 1, 2017.
