Introduced  by  Sen.  O'MARA -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Environmental Conservation

AN ACT to amend the  environmental  conservation  law,  in  relation  to
  establishing  the  New  York  state indigenous natural gas value added
  task force; and providing for the repeal of such provisions  upon  the
  expiration thereof

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings.   The legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares  that within New York state lies the Marcellus shale which is a
black shale formation extending deep  underground  from  Ohio  and  West
Virginia northeast into Pennsylvania and southern New York. According to
the  New York state department of environmental conservation some geolo-
gists estimate  that  the  entire  Marcellus  shale  formation  contains
between  168 trillion to 516 trillion cubic feet of natural gas through-
out its entire extent. It is not yet known how much gas will be  commer-
cially  recoverable from the Marcellus shale in New York state. New York
state currently uses 1.1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas a  year.  In
order  for  New  York  state  to derive the full value of this commodity
located in the state, we need to utilize the gas in New York  state  for
manufacturing and other value added activities.
  S  2.  Article  19 of the environmental conservation law is amended by
adding a new title 13 to read as follows:
                                 TITLE 13
      NEW YORK STATE INDIGENOUS NATURAL GAS VALUE ADDED TASK FORCE
SECTION 19-1301. NEW YORK STATE INDIGENOUS NATURAL GAS VALUE ADDED  TASK
                    FORCE.
        19-1303. TASK FORCE COMPOSITION.
        19-1305. POWERS AND DUTIES OF THE TASK FORCE.
S 19-1301. NEW YORK STATE INDIGENOUS NATURAL GAS VALUE ADDED TASK FORCE.

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