AN ACT to amend the  environmental  conservation  law,  in  relation  to
  outdoor wood boilers

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

  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that  wood  is  a
sustainable  and renewable resource and that burning clean wood for heat
reduces our dependence on more costly foreign non-renewable  sources  of
energy.  The legislature further finds that responsible burning of clean
wood in an outdoor wood boiler provides a reliable source  of  heat  and
hot  water at a relatively low cost when compared to other energy sourc-
es.  Furthermore, the legislature finds that because of the  wide  vari-
ation  in  climate,  topography,  community character and socio-economic
conditions throughout New York state, any  regulation  of  outdoor  wood
boilers that is more restrictive than that contained in this act is most
appropriately left to local governments.
  S  2.  Article  19 of the environmental conservation law is amended by
adding a new title 13 to read as follows:
                                TITLE 13
                   REGULATION OF OUTDOOR WOOD BOILERS
SECTION 19-1301. REGULATION OF OUTDOOR WOOD BOILERS.
S 19-1301. REGULATION OF OUTDOOR WOOD BOILERS.
  1. DEFINITIONS. AS USED IN THIS  CHAPTER  THE  FOLLOWING  TERMS  SHALL
MEAN:
  (A)  "CLEAN WOOD" MEANS WOOD THAT HAS NOT BEEN PAINTED, STAINED, COAT-
ED, PRESERVED, OR TREATED WITH ANY PRESERVATIVE,  HERBICIDE,  PESTICIDE,
ADHESIVE OR OTHER CHEMICAL COATING.
  (B) "OTHER BIOMASS" MEANS WOOD PELLETS, CORN, OR WOOD CHIPS.
  (C)  "OUTDOOR  WOOD  BOILER"  ALSO KNOWN AS "HYDRONIC HEATERS" MEANS A
FUEL BURNING DEVICE THAT IS DESIGNED TO PRIMARILY BURN  CLEAN  WOOD,  OR

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
