A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to modernizing the notice requirements for public hearings on proposed rules.
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1.  Subdivision b of section 1043 of chapter 45 of the New York city charter is amended by adding a new paragraph 4, to read as follows:
           4.  In addition to the requirements set forth in paragraph one of this subdivision, each agency shall provide information regarding the public hearing to be held with regard to a proposed rule in a prominent location on such agency's website at least seven days prior to the date set for such hearing.  Each agency shall further provide, in a prominent location on such agency's website, a link to the NYC Rules online portal or any successor city website or page that is substantially similar in form or function.  Each agency shall, to the greatest extent practicable, and in addition to the electronic transmissions required by paragraph two of this subdivision, publicize upcoming public hearings via electronic means that are likely to reach interested members of the public.  This paragraph shall not be construed to create a private right of action to enforce its provisions.  Inadvertent failure to comply with this paragraph shall not result in the invalidation of any rule.
ยง 2.  This local law shall take effect ninety days after its enactment.
