A06964 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6964
 
SPONSOR: Paulin
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to requiring itemization, by school district, of proposed appropriations to the education department for the support of school districts   PURPOSE: Requires the budget submitted by the governor to include an itemization, by each individual school district, of appropriations for the support of school districts.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 24 of the state finance law, adding a new subdivision 6, which requires the apportionment of school district aid moneys to be included with the governor's annual budget bill. Section two provides the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: School aid runs are vitally important to the formu- lation of school budgets. Unfortunately, the release of these projec- tions is not mandated by law. Their release as a part of the Executive Budget Proposal has served as an acknowledgement of the complex and time-consuming nature of the school budgets. Due to the fact that they are not mandated by law, the governor has the ability to unfairly with- hold them from his/her budget proposal. This would subject schools to a shorter amount of time within which to formulate a budget that needs to be presented and voted upon by their district's voters. This bill would mandate the release of school aid run projections as a part of the exec- utive's budget proposal. This would assure superintendents, school boards, teachers, and parents of access to projections, that they rely on to develop their school's budget.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
