A10274 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10274
 
SPONSOR: Rules (Eichenstein)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to transportation aid   PURPOSE: To limit the allowable transportation aid for the "after 4pm" busing program to a formula tied to the personal income growth index for the 2025-26 school year and thereafter   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends subdivision 4 of section 3527 of the education law by adding language that would limit the allowable transportation aid pursu- ant to this section by a formula tied to the personal income growth index for the 2025-26 school year and thereafter Section 2 is the effective date   JUSTIFICATION: Section 3527 of the education law provides critical transportation support to nonpublic school students whose school day ends after 4:00pm. Schools operate or contract for bus services, and are reimbursed for actual costs incurred, on a per student, per day basis. The current program caps the reimbursement rate to $16/student/day. By contrast, NYC expenditures on its own contracted bus service is $34/student/day. 10 years since the program began, the "After 4pm" busing program has proven highly successful, representing a "win-win" for NYC school district, by providing transportation services at half of the cost that the DOE provides. While the aid cap has been raised to meet the program's growth in students, it has not been adjusted for any cost-of-living increases and schools are still reimbursed at the same maximum rate of $16 per-stu- dent, per-day, as they were in the 2013-2014 school year. This proposed legislation will allow for an increase of $1/student/day, while also tying futures increases to the personal income growth index.   FISCAL IMPACT: $2.5 million   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect July 1, 2025; provided, however, that if section 13-a of part A of chapter 56 of the laws of 2024 shall not have taken effect on or before such date then section one of this act shall take effect on the same date and in the same manner as such chapter of the laws of 2024, takes effect.
