What is Law New?

Law new is legislation that has been proposed, debated, and passed by a legislature. The law can be a bill, resolution or statute. A law may also be an official regulation such as a rule or directive. Laws may be written or unwritten, and they are typically enforceable by a government agency such as the courts. Laws include the constitution and laws of a country, state or city, and decisions by courts that interpret those laws.

The new rules would add penalty schedules for violations related to keeping or selling any force-fed products, and require that motion picture theaters provide open captioning, among other changes. Read the rule.

This bill would require City agencies to provide employees and job applicants with notice regarding student loan forgiveness programs, and requires DCWP to make this information available to contractors. Read the bill.

This bill would require City agencies that experience security breaches involving personal identifying information of individuals to disclose that information promptly to affected persons, the Chief Privacy Officer, and the Office of Cyber Command. The bill would align City data breach disclosure laws with those in the State SHIELD Act. The law would also expand the definition of “public body” to include not only City councils and committees, but also county boards, town boards, village boards of trustees and school districts, along with their committees and subcommittees.
