ronmental  conservation law, as amended by section 44 of part D of chap-
ter 60 of the laws of 2012, is amended to read as follows:
  a. Adopt, amend or repeal environmental standards, criteria and  those
rules  and  regulations  having  the  force  and effect of standards and

the commissioner in the exercise of any function, power or  duty  trans-
ferred  to  him  or her and heretofore authorized to be exercised by any
other department acting through its commissioner to  promulgate,  adopt,
amend  or  repeal any standards, rules and regulations. No such environ-
mental standards, criterion, rule or regulation or change thereto  shall
be proposed for approval unless a public hearing relating to the subject
of  such  standard  shall  be held by the commissioner prior thereto not
less than [30] 45 days after date of notice therefor, any  provision  of
law  to  the  contrary  notwithstanding. Notice shall be given by public
advertisement of the date, time, place and purpose of such hearing.
  S 2. Subdivision 1 of section 19-0303 of the  environmental  conserva-
tion  law,  as amended by chapter 469 of the laws of 1974, is amended to
