BILL NUMBER:S1110

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the general construction law, in relation to allowing for
online publication of public notices

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Allows for online publication of public notices.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Subject to the provisions of subdivision two of this section and
notwithstanding any provisions of law to the contrary, in any case in
which notice of any fact is required by law to be published or
advertised in a newspaper, such requirement, in addition such
requirement shall be satisfied by publication of the notice in an
online news publication.

JUSTIFICATION:
Currently New York law requires the publication of public notices in
either daily or weekly newspapers. The law appears to define
newspapers as printed matter. Online Publication of public notices
would allow for public notices to be searched through a web site's
search function or through a public search engine. Moreover, it would
lead to faster publication cycles, and a wider dissemination of
notices. Lastly, it may lower the cost to individuals and government,
by decreasing the needs for paper, printing, and revenue support for
inefficient legacy business.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.4433/A.6058; Referred to Judiciary

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
