Contact Your Elected Officials
Welcome to NYSASBO's Advocacy Center, where you can contact your state elected officials (legislators, Governor) on issues important to school business officials and public education.
Here you can find our tool to look up your elected Federal and State representatives.
Below are brief descriptions of legislation and links to pre-written letters that will be emailed to the appropriate legislator or Governor. Click on each link to send a letter by filling out your contact info (so it knows which legislator to send an email to). You can choose to provide either your school/BOCES or home contact info, whichever you prefer.
OPPOSE - S.6906 Ranzenhofer / A.10136 Cusick
This legislation would prohibit public owners, such as school districts, from rejecting contractors' late claims unless the public owner can prove the lateness materially harmed the district. It would allow late claims to be filed up 180 days after the deadline for submission of claims has passed, exposing school districts and thus taxpayers to additional costs.
