A minimum wage increase and dissemination of personal images are two of the primary subjects of new laws coming to New York State in 2023.

Other notable laws going into effect this year cover telemarketing calls, paid family leave, electric vehicles, pedestrian and bicyclist safety and polling places. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will offer its own package of laws covering personal care products, food packaging materials and toxic chemicals in children’s products.
