        Introduced  by  Sen.  JACOBS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
          printed to be committed to the Committee on Education
 
        AN ACT to amend the education law,  in  relation  to  apportionment  for
          certain school districts for lower allowable transportation expenses
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Subdivision 7 of section  3602  of  the  education  law  is
     2  amended by adding a new paragraph f to read as follows:
     3    f.  In addition to any other apportionment under this subdivision, for
     4  the two thousand twenty-one--two thousand  twenty-two  school  year  and
     5  thereafter,  a  school  district  other than a city school district in a
     6  city having a population of one million or  more  inhabitants  shall  be
     7  eligible  for  an incentive apportionment where such district can demon-
     8  strate to the commissioner cost savings and efficiencies that results in
     9  a lower allowable transportation expense for the base year  compared  to
    10  the  year  prior  to  the base year; provided, however, that such school
    11  district meets the requirements set forth in subparagraph three of  this
    12  paragraph.
    13    (1)  The  amount  of such incentive apportionment under this paragraph
    14  shall be equal to the product of:
    15    (i) the positive difference in such district's  allowable  transporta-
    16  tion  expense  for the year prior to the base year minus such district's
    17  allowable transportation expense for the base year; and
    18    (ii) ten percent.
    19    (2) The commissioner shall be authorized to approve  a  claim  for  an
    20  incentive  apportionment under this paragraph provided a school district
    21  claiming an incentive apportionment shall have implemented  an  approved
    22  transportation  efficiency  plan  and  documented  such cost savings and
    23  efficiencies in accordance with guidelines established  by  the  commis-
    24  sioner.  If  the  total  statewide incentive apportionment claimed under
    25  this paragraph exceeds three million  dollars  ($3,000,000),  individual
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD04746-01-9

        S. 1742                             2
 
     1  school  district  incentive  apportionments  shall be prorated to ensure
     2  that the total statewide incentive apportionment does not  exceed  three
     3  million  dollars ($3,000,000), provided that such prorated apportionment
     4  computed  and payable as of September one of the school year immediately
     5  following the school year for which such aid is claimed shall be  deemed
     6  final and not subject to change.
     7    (3)  To  be  eligible for the incentive apportionment under this para-
     8  graph:
     9    (i) such district must be  an  independent  school  district  that  is
    10  subject to the provisions of section two thousand twenty-three-a of this
    11  chapter  and that has adopted a budget that does not exceed the tax levy
    12  limit prescribed by that section. The school district must  certify  its
    13  compliance with such tax levy limit in the manner prescribed by subdivi-
    14  sion two of section two thousand twenty-three-b of this chapter;
    15    (ii) such district must be a dependent school district that is subject
    16  to  the  provisions  of section three-c of the general municipal law and
    17  that has adopted a budget that  does  not  exceed  the  tax  levy  limit
    18  prescribed  by  that  section. The city must certify its compliance with
    19  such tax levy limit in the  manner  prescribed  by  subdivision  two  of
    20  section three-d of the general municipal law; and
    21    (iii)  such  district  must  have  a  transportation  efficiency  plan
    22  approved by the commissioner.
    23    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
