A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the posting of machine readable executive orders

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

                     Section 1. Section 3-113 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 40 for the year 2011, is renumbered section 3-113.1 and subdivisions a and c of such section are amended to read as follows:

a. (1) [All mayoral executive orders issued on or after January 1, 1974 shall be posted on the city's website] The corporation counsel shall make available on a single page on the city's website a true and complete compilation of all mayoral executive orders issued on or after January 1, 1974. Such compilation shall be published in a searchable, machine-readable format or formats that are capable of being downloaded in bulk, and which are chosen for the purpose of making such compilation available to the greatest number of users and for the greatest number of applications. Such compilation shall indicate any mayoral executive order that has been explicitly superseded or amended by a later mayoral executive order with an annotation to the superseded or amended executive order.

(2) All mayoral executive orders issued on or after July 1, 2011 shall be provided to the council and [posted] made available on the city's website in accordance with paragraph (1) of this subdivision within five business days from the date of execution.

                     c. Where the length of a memorandum of understanding or similar agreement is excessive, an agency may comply with [this] subdivision b by posting an excerpt and a brief summary of such memorandum or agreement on the city's website, provided that the full version of such memorandum of understanding or similar agreement shall be made available upon request at no charge.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 2 years after the expiration or termination of the state disaster emergency declared by the governor of the state of New York in executive order number 202, dated March 7, 2020, as extended.
