Regulations explain how an action is to be done. In the case of a public law, they will often detail how an aspect of a law is to be carried out.  They are proposed by federal departments and agencies; and after a period of public review in which discussion and comments are accepted, the final regulation is published in the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (NYCRR).

The sources below follow the creation of regulations from the time they are proposed to the time they are finalized.

  • New York State Register
    Notices of proposed rules, changes to existing rules, adoption or withdrawal of formerly proposed rule changes; public hearings; securities offerings; and advertisements for bidders/contractors
