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

  employment opportunities

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

  Section 1. Section 201-a of the state administrative procedure act, as
added by chapter 189 of the laws of 1996, paragraph (g) of subdivision 2
as  amended  by  chapter  304 of the laws of 2016, is amended to read as
follows:
  § 201-a. Job impact. 1. In developing a rule, an agency  shall  strive
to  accomplish  the  objectives of applicable statutes in a manner which
minimizes any unnecessary adverse impacts on existing jobs and  promotes
the development of new employment opportunities, including opportunities
for self-employment, for the residents of the state.
  2. Before proposing a rule for adoption or adopting a rule on an emer-
gency  basis,  an agency shall evaluate the potential impact of the rule

opportunities, the agency shall include in the notice of  proposed  rule
making  or  the notice of emergency adoption a statement that the agency
has determined that the rule will not have a substantial adverse  impact
on  jobs  and  employment  opportunities; provided, however, that, where
appropriate, such statement shall indicate that the  agency  has  deter-
mined the rule will have a positive impact on jobs and employment oppor-
tunities,  or  will have no impact on jobs and employment opportunities.
Except where it is evident from the subject matter of the rule that  the
rule  could only have a positive impact or no impact on jobs and employ-
ment opportunities, the agency shall include in the  statement  prepared
