A07885 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A7885A

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the executive law, in relation to the
posting of the New York code, rules and regulations on the internet

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: This bill would give citizens and
businesses ready internet access to the New York Code, Rules and
Regulations ("NYCRR"). While New York's statutes and constitution are
easily accessible on the internet, the NYCRR is not.  Some state
agency websites maintain links to relevant portions of the NYCRR, but
others do not; none give access to the entire NYCRR. The NYCRR
contains the rules and regulations which state agencies follow in
executing their respective responsibilities, and in many cases are
more essential to the operation of government than the statutes which
the NYCRR executes. Citizens and businesses should have ready internet
access to the laws which govern them.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The bill amends the Executive Law by
adding a new section 106-a, which would require the Department of
State to post or maintain a link on its website to an unofficial
version of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations, at no cost to
the public, and to further require agency websites to maintain a link
to the Department of State website which contains the link to the
unofficial version of the New York Codes, Rules and Regulations.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:  None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: January 1, 2008.
