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.
