Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6501

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state administrative procedure act, in relation to providing a procedure for delaying the effective date of proposed agency rules

PURPOSE: To provide a procedure for delaying the effective date of a proposed agency ruling.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 amends Section 202 of the State Administrative Procedure Act by adding a new subdivision 10 to allow the delay of agency rule making by 90 days beyond that permitted in this section, so long as two-thirds of ARRC membership votes in approval. Notice of an effective date that was delayed under this provision shall be published in the New York State Register.

Section 2 states the act shall take effect immediately.

EXISTING LAW: SAPA has no provisions to allow for formal requests to delay agency rule makings.

JUSTIFICATION: Occasionally, agencies will propose regulations that create severe controversy or may be drafted in such a way as to contain a flaw or flaws in the processes that the proposed rule making attempts to correct. For this reason, ARRC needs the ability to delay a proposed rule's effective date by 90 days to discuss alternatives to correct matters for all parties involved.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately
