625 Broadway, 1st Floor, Albany, NY 12233-1550, Phone: (518) 402-9003, E-mail ohms@dec.ny.gov.

NYS DEC proposes to repeal 6 NYCRR Part 622, Uniform Enforcement Hearing Procedures, and replace the rule with a new 6 NYCRR Part 622, Uniform Enforcement Hearing Procedures, to clarify the hearing process for administrative enforcement proceedings. In addition to adopting a new Part 622, NYS DEC proposes to amend the definition section of 6 NYCRR Part 620, Procedures for Issuance of Summary Abatement Orders, and Part 624, Permit Hearing Procedures, to make the definitions of terms shared by Parts 620, 622 and 624 consistent. NYS DEC also proposes to amend 6 NYCRR 621.10(a), 621.11(g) and 621.13(d) to require that a copy of a written request for a hearing made pursuant to those subdivisions be provided to the Chief Administrative Law Judge.

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to repeal and replace 6 NYCRR Part 622 and amend 6 NYCRR Parts 620, 621 and 624 will be published in issue 43 of the State Register, dated October 23, 2019. Documents pertaining to the proposed rulemaking may be found at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/propregulations.html#public.

Written comments on the proposed rule may be submitted until 5:00 p.m. on January 31, 2020. Written comments must be mailed to Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Michael S. Caruso, NYS DEC Office of Hearings and Mediation Services, 625 Broadway, 1st Floor, Albany, NY 12233-1550, or emailed to ALJ Caruso at ohms@dec.ny.gov.
