AN  ACT  to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to
  providing for public comment during the initial development,  prepara-
  tion and promulgation of rules

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

  Section 1.  Paragraph (b) of subdivision 4-a of  section  202  of  the

of 1992, is amended to read as follows:
  (b) Each agency shall publish and make  available  to  the  public  an
assessment  of public comment for a rule revised pursuant to this subdi-
vision. Such assessment shall be based upon any written comments submit-
ted to the  agency  DURING  THE  INITIAL  DEVELOPMENT,  PREPARATION  AND
PROMULGATION  OF  SUCH  PROPOSED  RULE and any comments presented at any
public hearing held on the proposed rule by the agency.  The  assessment
shall  contain:   (i) a summary and an analysis of the issues raised and
significant alternatives suggested by any such comments; (ii)  a  state-
ment  of  the reasons why any significant alternatives were not incorpo-
rated into the rule; and (iii) a description of any changes made in  the
rule  as  a  result of such comments. If no comments have been received,
the notice of revised rule making shall  state  that  no  comments  were
received  by the agency. Any subsequent assessment published pursuant to
this paragraph or paragraph (b) of subdivision five of this section need
only include comments not addressed in any previously published  assess-
ment  of public comment for the rule; provided, however, that the notice
of revised rule making or adoption shall contain the date  any  previous
notice of revised rule making containing an assessment of public comment
was published in the state register.
