BILL NUMBER:S6483 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to detailing the benefits and costs of proposed rules in regulatory impact statements PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill will improve the rule-making process by providing for expanded information on the costs and benefits associated with an agency proposal. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 sets forth legislative findings that state agency rules should be adopted through a Process which provides for open and reasoned consideration of the potential costs and benefits of regulatory action, and that the law should ensure that agency assessments of the costs and the benefits of proposed rules are reasonably accurate and comprehensive. Sections 2 and 3 amend subdivisions 4-a and 5 of §202 of the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA). The amendments ensure that the assessment of public comments prepared for a revised rule making will take into account estimates of the cost impact of rules which differ significantly from the agency's estimates, as is currently required

S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 6483 I N S E N A T E January 29, 2014 ___________ Introduced by Sens. VALESKY, BALL, CARLUCCI, GALLIVAN, GRISANTI, LARKIN, RITCHIE -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business 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 STATEMENT, REGULATORY FLEXIBILITY ANALYSIS, OR RURAL AREA FLEXIBILITY ANALYSIS, THE ASSESSMENT SHALL ALSO SUMMARIZE THE AGENCY'S ASSESSMENT OF EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
