State Senator Simcha Felder (D-Brooklyn) announced today that he has been selected by Democratic Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins to serve as Chairperson of the Senate Administrative Regulations Review Commission, or ARRC.
Carrying the force of law, State agency regulations affect business, industry and local governments. The ARRC is responsible for monitoring the rules and regulatory actions of all State agencies to ensure their efficacy and legality. Effectively acting as the legislature's watchdog, this appointment puts Senator Felder in a powerful position to combat regulations that hinder the economic growth and environmental health of communities, businesses and all New Yorkers.
“I'm humbled and honored to join the Senate leadership team as Chair of the Senate Administrative Regulations Review Commission, and I thank Leader Stewart-Cousins for placing her confidence in me. My goal as Chair of the Commission is to provide substantive results for New Yorkers that strengthen the future of our state,” said Senator Felder.
Senator Felder will sit on five additional committees including:
• Social Services Committee
• Children and Families Committee
• Budget and Revenue Committee
• Commerce, Economic Development, and Small Business Committee
• Domestic Animal Welfare Committee
“It’s good to be back in a strong position to advocate on behalf of the hard working men, women and families of New York. I look forward to working with my colleagues and improving the day to day lives of the people we serve,” concluded Senator Felder.
