AN ACT to amend the state administrative procedure act, in  relation  to
  increasing  the revised rule public comment period from thirty days to

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (a)  of  subdivision 4-a of section 202 of the
state administrative procedure act, as amended by  chapter  396  of  the
laws of 1993, is amended to read as follows:
  (a)  Except  with  respect to any rule defined in subparagraph (ii) of
paragraph (a) of subdivision two of section  one  hundred  two  of  this
chapter,  prior  to  the  adoption  of  a rule, an agency shall submit a
notice of revised rule making to the secretary of state for  publication
in the state register for any proposed rule which contains a substantial
revision. The public shall be afforded an opportunity to submit comments
on the revised text of a proposed rule. Unless a different time is spec-
ified  in  statute, the notice of revised rule making must appear in the
state register at least [thirty] FORTY-FIVE days prior to  the  adoption
of  the  rule. The notice of revised rule making shall indicate the last
date for submission of comments on the  revised  text  of  the  proposed
rule,  which,  unless a different time is specified in statute, shall be
not less than [thirty] FORTY-FIVE days after the date of publication  of
such notice.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
