China Legislative Affairs Officers Visit to GORR

Members of the delegation with GORR Director Daniel D. Hogan, GORR IT Team Leader Michael Hartigan, GORR Deputy Director David S. Bradley, and GORR Counsel Amy Stern.

A delegation from the People’s Republic of China’s Premier’s Executive Office’s Legislative Affairs Office met with Governor’s Office of Regulatory Reform (GORR) Director Daniel D. Hogan and GORR staff on November 29, 2004. Also making presentations at the meeting were Judge Judith Lee, Chief Administrative Law Judge, Department of Public Service, Robert Freeman, Executive Director, Committee on Open Government, and Amy Stern, GORR Counsel.

The meeting was facilitated by Mr. Andy B. Ge, Vice President, and Ms. Anni Wang, Project Manager, of the United States China Exchange Council (USCEC), a San Francisco-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to quality exchange programs between the U.S. and China.

Topics included:

GORR’s history, mission, mandates, and programs.
New York’s Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) and Open Meetings Law.
New York State’s Administrative Procedure Act.
How New York State ensures “public participation,” “transparency,” and “open government” in its regulatory procedures, including ratemakings.

China is focusing on what they refer to as good governance and “democratic and scientific decision-making.” China has begun experimenting with public hearings, particularly in rate-setting matters, as well as the lawmaking process in the local people’s congresses. More recently, some local governments and some national-level ministries have begun to publish draft regulations for public comment, over the internet and in newspapers of general circulation.
