AN  ACT  to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to
  improving evaluations of the potential impact of  rules  on  jobs  and
  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
on jobs and employment opportunities.
  (a)  When  it is apparent from the nature and purpose of the rule that
it will not have a substantial adverse impact  on  jobs  and  employment
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-
