Authority to Proceed with Agency Rulemaking
Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
Under section 2101 of the New York City Charter, the chair of the Business Integrity Commission (“BIC”) has charge of the organization of the Commission and has authority to employ, assign and superintend the duties of such officers and employees as may be necessary to carry out the Commission’s regulatory duties.
Under this proposed rule, the Business Integrity Commission would delegate authority to the chair to initiate the rulemaking process under the City Administrative Procedure Act. The Business Integrity Commission must still approve, by majority vote, any new rule before it is made final. This proposed rule is necessary for the Business Integrity Commission to continue to efficiently perform its regulatory duties.
BIC’s authority for this rule is found in sections 1043(a) and 2101(b) of the New York City Charter.
