ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – A new independent study gives New York a D+ grade for its regulation of industries that effect air and water quality, job growth and other major areas.

The independent report questions the whole decision-making process in New York’s penchant for regulation of businesses.

The Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University Law School found that New York’s agencies that enforce regulations struggle to meet basic cost-benefit analysis guidelines and so are less likely to arrive at balanced, public interest-minded results.

Blair Horner of the New York Public Interest Research Group welcomes a change from political ideology to a fact-based analysis before regulations are enacted.
