BILL NUMBER:S5519

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to
establishing the task force for the review of rules, regulations and
public authorities

PURPOSE:

Establishes the task force for the review of rules, regulations and
public authorities once every ten years.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 - The executive law is amended by adding a new article 3-B.
Article 3-B establishes that every ten years on or before March 1st
(in years that end with a four) a task force for the review of current
rules, regulations and public authorities will be convened. It
establishes the composition of the board and provides for the task
force to hold public hearings and have powers of a legislative
committee pursuant to legislative law. Task force members will not be
compensated for their services on this task force. The task force will
submit a report of its findings, conclusions and recommendations to
the governor, state comptroller and the legislature on or before
January 1st of the following year. They also will submit legislative
proposals as it deems necessary to implement its recommendations. The
task force will be dissolved upon submission of the report.

Section 2- The act shall take effect immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:

Quite often rules, regulations and public authorities may be necessary
for a concept that becomes outdated with time. As such, the State and
its agencies can become riddled with cumbersome rules and regulations
that are no longer pertinent. Therefore, it is incumbent on the
State's government to set up a system to evaluate all of New York
State's public authorities, rules and regulations on a regular basis
to weed out any unnecessary or archaic procedures. This will allow for
the streamlining of regulatory reform and assist in making sure that
that State and its agencies are running, as efficiently as possible.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
