TITLE OF BILL: An act relating to rules and regulations of the state
This bill seeks to start the process of repealing agency rules and
regulations that are an impediment to economic growth and job creation
by establishing a timetable for state agencies to identify rules that
should or could be repealed, for the Department of Economic
Development to review and make recommendations with respect to such
rules, to have the Governor identify at least 1,000 rules to repeal
and for repeal of the identified rules.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill directs state agencies, departments, public
benefit corporations and authorities to submit to the Governor, the
legislative leaders and ARRC by 8/31/2014 a comprehensive list of
adopted rules and regulations, an explanation of the agency's need for
each such rule or regulation, and those no longer necessary with a
recommendation for repeal.
Section 2 requires the Department of Economic Development to review
the lists established pursuant to section 1 and to make recommendation
for repeal of rules or regulations that are an impediment to economic
growth and job creation by 11/30/2014. ARRC shall also review the
lists and make similar recommendations.
Section 3 of the bill requires the Governor, by 12/31/2014, to
identify at least 1,000 rules or regulations to repeal, including any
that are an impediment to economic growth and job creation.
Section 4 of the bill requires the Governor to repeal at least 1,000
rules or regulations, following SAPA procedures, by April 1, 2015.
Current law does not provide either a requirement or timetable for
repeal of unnecessary state rules and regulations and those that are
impediments to economic growth and job creation.
New York's Code of Rules and Regulations is comprised of 23 Titles in
83 volumes. This legislation is modeled on a successful effort in the
State of Florida that led to more than 3,000 rules and regulations
being identified for repeal or revision. Excessive state agency rules
and regulations add costs to small business, stifle innovation and
make New York less competitive than other states. In order to create a
pro- job growth climate in this state, we need to clear away all
unnecessary state regulation that serves no legitimate government
This is a new bill.
