BILL NUMBER:S5519A

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 ft (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
recommendations for the repeal of any unnecessary rule or regulation
shall be binding unless by concurrent resolution the legislature
rejects the recommendation in whole or in part. The task force will be
dissolved upon submission of the report.

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may be necessary for a concept that becomes outdated with time.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 the State and its agencies are running as efficiently
as possible.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
