AN ACT to amend the state administrative procedure act, in  relation  to
  the impact of proposed rules on jobs and employment opportunities

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 1 of section 201-a of the state  administrative
procedure  act,  as added by chapter 189 of the laws of 1996, is amended
to read as follows:
  1. In [developing] THE INITIAL DEVELOPMENT, PREPARATION AND  PROMULGA-
TION  OF  a rule, an agency shall strive to accomplish the objectives of
applicable statutes in a manner which minimizes any unnecessary  adverse
impacts  on existing jobs and promotes the development of new employment
opportunities, including  opportunities  for  self-employment,  for  the
residents of the state.
  S  2. The opening paragraph, and paragraphs (c), (d) and (e) of subdi-
vision 2 of section 201-a of the state administrative procedure act,  as
added  by  chapter  189  of  the  laws  of  1996, are amended to read as
follows:
  Before proposing a rule for adoption or adopting a rule on an emergen-
cy basis, an agency shall evaluate the potential impact of the  rule  on
EXISTING AND POTENTIAL FUTURE jobs and employment opportunities.
  (c)  When  the  information  available to an agency is insufficient to
enable it to determine whether a rule will have  a  substantial  adverse
impact  on  jobs or employment opportunities, or to prepare a job impact
statement pursuant to paragraph (b)  of  this  subdivision,  the  agency
shall  issue  a  statement  indicating the information which it needs to
complete a job impact statement and requesting the assistance  of  other
state  agencies,  REGULATED  PERSONS  and  the  public in obtaining such
information.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
