2004 Regulatory Agenda

Pursuant to Chapter 262 of the Laws of 1996, the State Administrative Procedure Act (SAPA) was amended to add section 207 under which the Department of Taxation and Finance must review all regulations adopted on or after January 1, 1997, after five years, and, thereafter, at five year intervals. In 2004, the Department must review regulations that were adopted during 1999 to determine whether these regulations should be retained as written or modified. Accordingly, the Department intends to review the following regulations during 2004, and invites written comments on the continuation or modification of these regulations in order to assist the Department in the required review. We will consider comments that are received by February 23, 2004.
