Public Comments on DEC Regulations

Executive Order 25

The public comment period closed on February 16, 2010. Thank you for your submissions.

Pursuant to Executive Order No. 25, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation ("Department") invites comments from regulated entities and interested parties to identify existing regulations that impose unnecessary, burdensome or excessive costs, paperwork, reporting or other requirements. The Department's regulations are contained in Title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (6 NYCRR), which may be accessed on the NYS Department of State website, as well as DEC's regulations webpage.

Comments are sought that describe and quantify the burden and suggest appropriate remedies that the agency may undertake to eliminate or amend regulations that are unnecessary, unbalanced, unwise, duplicative or unduly burdensome.
