A04514 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4514
 
SPONSOR: Kavanagh
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to scheduling school lunch periods   PURPOSE OF BILL: This bill would require school lunch periods to be scheduled between two and one-half hours and four hours after the start of the school day.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends section 813 of the education law by requiring that school lunch periods would be scheduled for at least two and one-half hours but not more than four hours after the start of the school day for those attending full day pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. Section 2 provides for the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The current law requires that lunch be served at a "reasonable" time, but does not define what is reasonable. As school districts deal with overcrowding issues, many schools schedule lunch at an unreasonably early or late time. This bill will specify the reasonable hours within which schools can serve lunch.   FISCAL IMPACT ON THE STATE: None.   FISCAL IMPACT ON LOCALITIES: May require additional expenditures, to be determined, to expand options for lunch during school days.   IMPACT ON REGULATION OF BUSINESSES AND INDIVIDUALS: None.   IMPACT ON FINES, IMPRISONMENT, FORFEITURE OF RIGHTS, OR OTHER PENAL SANCTIONS: None.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2016: A05696 (Kavanagh) - Education 2015: A05696 (Kavanagh) - Education 2014: A00341 (Kavanagh) - Education 2013: A00341 (Kavanagh) - Education 2012: A05964 (Kavanagh) - Education 2011: A05964 (Kavanagh) - Education 2010: A07439 (Kavanagh) - Education 2009: A07439 (Kavanagh) - Education   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of August occurring in the year two years after which this act becomes a law.
