Call to Action: Equitable Treatment of BOCES Capital Costs
June 12, 2017
Last week several NYSSBA priority bills moved through the Assembly Education Committee, including legislation sponsored by Assemblywoman Sandy Galef and Senator Terrence Murphy (A.5965/S.4283) which would exclude school districts' BOCES capital costs from the tax cap. Currently, a school district's own capital costs are excluded from the cap. This bill, and several other NYSSBA priorities, are now referred to the Assembly Ways and Means committee and await a vote by the full Senate. Take Action Now
Contact your legislators and ask them to pass this bill before the legislative session ends.
