Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 3, PART 1
§ 101-b. Paperwork reduction. 1. The commissioner shall be authorized
to receive and accept reports, plans, applications and all other
information required to be reported by statute or regulation through
electronic means. The commissioner shall accept hard copy non-electronic
filings or submissions if the school district is able to demonstrate
that complying with electronic submission requirements would create
undue hardship for the school district or some other good cause exists
that would make electronic submission extremely impractical for the
school district.

2. It shall be the duty of the commissioner to review all existing
reports and plans that school districts and boards of cooperative
educational services are required to submit and by November first, two
thousand ten, the commissioner shall submit to the board of regents, the
governor, the speaker of the assembly, the temporary president of the
senate, the director of the budget and the chairs of the respective
fiscal and education committees of the senate and assembly specific
recommendations to eliminate unnecessary or duplicative reporting
requirements; and where possible, recommendations to consolidate
reports, plans and other information required to be submitted to the
commissioner including which recommendations could be implemented
administratively and which would require statutory authorization.
