AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to limiting the
  use of certain substances in brake friction material

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings.  The  legislature finds that brake
friction is an essential component of motor vehicle brakes and is  crit-
ically  important to transportation safety and public safety in general.
Debris from brake friction materials containing copper and its compounds
is generated and released into the environment during  normal  operation
of  motor  vehicle  brakes.  Thousands  of  pounds  of  copper and other
substances released from brake friction material enter  New  York  state
streams, rivers and marine environments as a result of the normal opera-
tion  of motor vehicle brakes. The legislature finds that brake friction
materials are toxic to many aquatic and marine  organisms  and  must  be
regulated  to  ensure  the  quality,  safety,  and health of the state's
waterways.
  S 2. The vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding  a  new  section
382-d to read as follows:
  S  382-D.  BRAKE  FRICTION  MATERIAL. 1. DEFINITIONS. (A) "ALTERNATIVE
BRAKE FRICTION  MATERIAL"  MEANS  BRAKE  MATERIAL  THAT:  (I)  DOES  NOT
CONTAIN:  (A)  MORE  THAN 0.5 PERCENT COPPER OR ITS COMPOUNDS BY WEIGHT;
(B) THE CONSTITUENTS IDENTIFIED IN SUBDIVISION TWO OF THIS SECTION AT OR
ABOVE THE CONCENTRATIONS SPECIFIED; OR (C) OTHER MATERIALS DETERMINED BY
THE DEPARTMENT TO BE MORE HARMFUL TO HUMAN  HEALTH  OR  THE  ENVIRONMENT
THAN EXISTING BRAKE FRICTION MATERIAL; (II) ENABLES MOTOR VEHICLE BRAKES
TO  MEET  APPLICABLE  FEDERAL  SAFETY STANDARDS, OR IF NO FEDERAL SAFETY
STANDARD EXISTS, A WIDELY ACCEPTED INDUSTRY STANDARD; (III) IS AVAILABLE
AT A COST AND QUANTITY THAT DOES NOT CAUSE SIGNIFICANT  FINANCIAL  HARD-
SHIP  ACROSS  A MAJORITY OF BRAKE FRICTION MATERIAL AND VEHICLE MANUFAC-

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
