BILL NUMBER:S7470

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to
agency regulatory agendas;
and
to amend chapter 402 of the laws of 1994, amending the state
administrative procedure act relating to requiring certain agencies to
submit regulatory agendas for publication in the state register, in
relation to extending the expiration of certain provisions of such
chapter

PURPOSE:
The bill extends the state administrative procedure act until December
31, 2016. The bill would also require an regulatory agenda to include
an email address of an agency representative in addition to the
existing requirement to include a name, address and telephone number.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: The bill requires a regulatory agenda to include the email
address of the agency representative who is knowledgeable on the
agenda. This is in addition to the existing requirement to include
the representative's name, telephone number and office address.

Section 2. Extends the sun setting law until December 31, 2016.

JUSTIFICATION:
This bill extends the portion of State Administrative Procedure Act
which was set to expire in December 2012 until 2016. The bill also
just updates what contact information is required on a regulatory
agenda to include an email address. As most people communicate by
email address this will simply update this portion of the SAPA law.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
On the first of January next succeeding the date on which it shall
become law.
