BILL NUMBER: S2839 SPONSOR: KAPLAN TITLE OF BILL: 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 PURPOSE: This bill would make various improvements to the process for evaluating the potential impact of proposed rules on jobs and employment opportu- nities. The current process, while useful, does not provide sufficient information on the quality of jobs that could be gained or lost by pursuing various policy choices, and does not guarantee that the most appropriate data and methodologies are used. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends § 201-a of the State Administrative Procedure Act
