     4    b. The acquisition of such facilities is hereby  declared  and  deter-
     5  mined to be a school district purpose and an object or purpose for which

     8  object or purpose is hereby determined to be  thirty  years.  Each  such

    22  required, (ii) the voting of a special tax or a tax to be  collected  in
    23  installments  shall  not  be  a condition precedent to the adoption of a
    24  bond resolution for such object or purpose, (iii) a majority vote of the
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets

     4  called  on  not less than twelve hours oral or written notice, which may
     5  be held either within or outside of such district, (iv)  any  such  bond
     6  resolution shall take effect immediately and shall not be subject either
     7  to a mandatory or permissive referendum, and (v) no such bond resolution
     8  shall  be  adopted  prior  to  the execution by the board of cooperative
     9  educational services and the component school districts of such board of

    15    c. "Capital local expenditures" means (i) the  taxes  associated  with
    16  budgeted  expenditures resulting from the financing, refinancing, acqui-
    17  sition, design, construction, reconstruction,  rehabilitation,  improve-
    18  ment,  furnishing  and  equipping  of, or otherwise providing for school
    19  district  capital  facilities  or  school  district  capital  equipment,
    20  including  debt service and lease expenditures, and transportation capi-
    21  tal debt service, subject to the approval of the qualified voters  where
    22  required  by  law; and (ii) the school district's share of capital local

    26  thirteen  of  section nineteen hundred fifty of this title. [The commis-
    27  sioner of taxation and finance shall, as appropriate,  promulgate  rules
    28  and  regulations  which  may  provide  for  adjustment  of capital local
    29  expenditures to reflect a school district's share of additional budgeted
    30  capital  expenditures  made  by  a  board  of  cooperative   educational
    31  services.]
    32    §  3. This act shall take effect immediately; provided that the amend-
    33  ments to section 2023-a of the education law, made  by  section  two  of

    35  and shall expire and be deemed repealed therewith.
