BILL NUMBER:S3523

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to repeal section 19-0323 of the environmental conservation law relating
to use of ultra low sulfur diesel fuel and best available technology by
the state

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To repeal section 19-0323 of the Environmental Conservation Law.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 - repeals Section 19-0323 of the Environmental
Conservation Law.

Section 2 - provides that this act shall become effective immediately.

JUSTIFICATION:
Section 19-0323 was enacted in 2006 with all the best
intentions to improve air quality in New York. As it has been
gradually phased in, it has proven to be very expensive for the state
and for businesses providing goods and services to the state, with
continuing onerous record keeping that must be prepared by businesses
and reviewed and saved by the state. The section only applies to
in-state companies, and doesn't apply to thousands of over-the-road
truckers, interstate delivery vehicles and the many vehicles from
out-of-state who travel New York roads. In effect, it does not solve
the problem of air pollution, while singling out New York companies
to make them economically non-competitive with out-of-state
companies. This section has become another expensive unfunded mandate
with limited environmental value, and it is time for the state to
reconsider whether it is appropriate to create burdens for our
businesses and government, and simply pass the costs of such
regulations on without recognizing the terrible costs they place on
our state's economy and our residents who cannot find jobs because
businesses have gone elsewhere.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Overall savings to the state and businesses.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
