BILL NUMBER:A6964

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
formulation of school budgets. Unfortunately, the release of these
projections 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 withhold 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 executive'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.
