The laws of New York consist of the Constitution, statutes passed by the Legislature and codified in the Consolidated Laws, and decisions by courts that interpret those laws. This collection of slip law texts reflects changes made to New York laws in 2024. Public laws (PL) and joint resolutions appear on this list after they have been assigned a public law number by NARA, and private laws (PC) are in a separate list.

As the New Year begins, some major legislation is taking effect that will impact residents of the state. Gov. Kathy Hochul signed 730 bills into law, including raising the minimum wage in New York City and Westchester counties to $16 per hour. Additionally, Hochul passed legislation that will help combat the opioid and fentanyl epidemic, ensuring local pharmacies have fentanyl and other drug adulterant testing supplies to distribute to people at risk of an overdose.

Other legislation aims to protect tenants from landlords who fail to address water and security concerns. A new law requires NYCHA to notify tenants within 24 hours if their water is safe for drinking or cooking, and another law makes it illegal for building owners to install keyless security devices that can let thieves enter your apartment.

A new law gives victims of hate crimes more options to seek justice, and a law is being proposed to expand protections for LGBTQ youth in schools. In the legal industry, new laws affect everything from sex discrimination to the way we train law clerks.

The new law also makes it easier for the Attorney General to impose fines on rogue immigration attorneys and other immigration industry players. In addition, the law tightens rules on bringing foreign nationals into the U.S. for work and to study at universities, and increases penalties for those who commit immigration crimes.

The law also strengthens the state’s ability to prosecute rapists and other violent criminals by giving the Attorney General the power to detain, question and transfer suspected gang members from other states to New York for prosecution. In addition, the law increases the penalties for convicted rapists and creates an online database of sex offenders. It also allows the Attorney General to investigate rape and sexual assault by state employees and provides for a new type of civil case for victims of sexual assault.
