The Department of Consumer Affairs (“DCA” or “Department”) is proposing to add new rules to implement Section 1043(g) of the New York City Charter, which permits any person to petition a city agency to consider the adoption of any rule and requires each agency to have rules creating a procedure for such petitions.

Specifically, these proposed rules would set forth the procedures that petitioners must follow in petitioning the Department to consider a new rule. These proposed rules would also set forth the procedure the Department must follow in considering and responding to petitions. Additionally, these rules would require the Department to deny or approve petitions within 60 days and would set forth a procedure for rejecting or adopting petitions.

DCA’s authority for this rule is found in Sections 1043, 2203(f), and 2203(g) of the New York City Charter.
