O'MARA, MARTUCCI, OBERACKER, ORTT, PALUMBO, STEC, TEDISCO -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs AN ACT to amend the executive law, in relation to enacting the "stop continuing unnecessary orders and mandates at once act"; and to amend chapter 71 of the laws of 2021, amending the executive law relating to the termination of certain executive powers, in relation to requiring the governor to notify the legislature of a proposed extension or modification of an executive order 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 "stop continuing unnecessary orders and mandates at once act". § 2. Legislative intent. The legislature seeks to provide legislative review and authorization of any executive orders issued by the governor which would extend or modify a directive issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, nothing has been done to balance the powers of the governor and the legislature. In fact, the executive branch has been given more power. This act serves as a necessary measure to ensure that the power of the executive is checked and that the elected repre- sentatives of the people of New York in the legislature are empowered to effectively govern in times of crisis. Further, it is the intent of this act to allow businesses to operate with proper public health guidelines such as the wearing of face coverings, social distancing and sanitation protocols without further government interference. Many businesses have been deemed non-essential or have faced restrictions or closures as a result of the governor's executive orders and directives contained therein. These executive orders and directives have been overreaching and anti-business. Businesses have had to jump through hoops to remain open and make ends meet. These executive orders EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
