AN  ACT  to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to
  detailing the benefits and  costs  of  proposed  rules  in  regulatory
  impact statements

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

  Section 1. The legislature finds that many  rules  of  state  agencies
have  a  substantial  impact  on  the lives of the public, and therefore
should be adopted through a process which provides for open and reasoned
consideration of the potential costs and benefits of regulatory  action.
To  this  end,  the  statutes governing the rulemaking process should be
improved to ensure that agency assessments of the costs and the benefits
of proposed rules are reasonably accurate and comprehensive.
  S 2. Paragraph (b) of subdivision 4-a of  section  202  of  the  state
administrative  procedure  act,  as  added by chapter 335 of the laws 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 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  alterna-
tives  suggested  by  any such comments; (ii) a statement of the reasons
why any significant alternatives were not incorporated  into  the  rule;
and  (iii)  a description of any changes made in the rule as a result of
such comments. IF ANY COMMENTS INCLUDED ESTIMATES OF PROJECTED COSTS  OR
BENEFITS  OF  THE PROPOSED RULE TO THE STATE, LOCAL GOVERNMENTS OR REGU-
LATED OR OTHERWISE AFFECTED PERSONS OR ENTITIES, WHICH DIFFERED  SIGNIF-
ICANTLY  FROM  THOSE  PRESENTED  BY  THE AGENCY IN ITS REGULATORY IMPACT

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