New Laws Go into Effect across the US on Saturday, March 1 of 2022

The first day of the new year marks the start of a number of laws in many states. The measures vary from minimum wage increases to police accountability and animal protections to tax cuts.

Abortion is one of the most controversial areas of law in recent years, and a number of states have taken steps to restrict or ban abortions. While Republicans are looking to expand restrictions and limit access, Democrats are pushing to make reproductive medical decisions a constitutional right.

As the US Supreme Court considers a case that could severely erode abortion rights, lawmakers are drafting legislation to try and reverse these changes. Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, the state’s legislature has passed a bill that prohibits abortions after 24 weeks of gestation with some exceptions.

Laundry Regulations

The City’s laundry licensing scheme has been in place since the early 20th century and a number of activities have not been properly regulated. This bill would update the licensing system to better reflect the activities that occur in laundries today. It also includes additional requirements that apply to industrial laundries and to industrial laundry delivery services.

Vending Enforcement & Safety

This bill would gradually expand the number of permits that can be issued to food vendors on the streets and sidewalks of New York City. It also requires at least one supervisory licensee to be present at a cart at all times. This is an important measure that will help ensure the safety of those who enjoy this type of retail.

Data Security & Breach Notification

This law will require city agencies that experience a security breach to disclose this information to the City’s Chief Privacy Officer, the Office of Cyber Command and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications. It will also require the City to publish a notice regarding the security breach and to offer free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to those affected.

Students Loan Forgiveness – This bill would require the Department of Citywide Administrative Services in consultation with the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection to prepare a notice that would be provided to employees and job applicants about the availability of federal and state student loan forgiveness programs.

Street Vendors – This bill would require all pushcart operators to obtain a license to operate in the city, and it would prohibit them from vending on certain streets in Dyker Heights starting Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day. It will also establish a dedicated vending law enforcement unit to enforce these regulations.

Biometric ID – This bill would require businesses to notify customers that they use biometric identifier technology and prohibit the sale of biometric identifier information. It would also require that businesses protect their customers’ biometric identifiers from unintentional loss or theft.
