AN  ACT  to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to
  negotiated rule making

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

  Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
the "small business negotiated rule making act of 2017".
  § 2. Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds  that  providing
additional  opportunities  for  direct small business and public partic-
ipation in  the  development  of  potentially  controversial  rules  can
enhance  the  ability  of the agency to develop the most appropriate and
effective regulatory language, and can reduce the time and expense occa-
sioned by litigation over the rule. Negotiated rule  making  provides  a
means  of  improving  the  substance and increasing the acceptability of
rules, by affording to the agency, regulated small  businesses  and  the
public  the opportunity for face-to-face negotiations over a rule making
proposal which is under development by the agency. The  opportunity  for
representatives  of  the various persons and small businesses interested
in a rule to meet and communicate with each other provides  a  framework
for  the  sharing  of  information,  knowledge and expertise in order to
develop a consensus on the most effective and  appropriate  rule  making
proposal.    Fair representation of all interested parties and a skilled
facilitator are essential  elements  of  a  successful  negotiated  rule
making process.
  Therefore, the legislature declares it to be in the public interest to
set  forth  a  statutory process for negotiated rule making in the state
administrative procedure act  as  an  alternative  means  of  developing
appropriate and effective proposed rules.
