BILL NUMBER:A8879 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to exempting new electric vehicles, clean fuel vehicles and vehicles that meet the clean vehicle standards from the fees for the first year of registration of such vehicles; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of the bill would be to expand New York State tax credits for alternative fuel vehicles to include vehicles that meet the clean vehicle standards. It would broaden the types of vehicle technologies that would qualify for tax credits. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Bill §1 adds three new sections to the definitional provisions of the Vehicle & Traffic Law (VTL). New §107-a defines "clean fuel vehicle" and new §114-d defines "electric vehicle", each in a manner consistent with the definition in the Internal Revenue Code. Mew §159-a defines the term "vehicle that meets the clean vehicle standards" to match provisions of the federal Clean Air Act relating to vehicles that are certified as meeting exhaust emission standards which the state of California adopted.
