ALBANY – A new law will save local taxpayers money and improve government efficiency by allowing local governments to submit proposed laws electronically.
This legislation was signed into law by the Governor yesterday. The Senate version of the bill, S.3018A, was sponsored by Senator Catharine Young (R,C,I– Olean). Assemblywoman Sandy Galef (D–Ossining) and Assemblyman Joseph Giglio (R,C,I–Gowanda) sponsored the Assembly version, A.7376A. As a result, local governments will no longer be required to deliver paper versions of their proposed laws to legislators.
