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 expi-
  ration 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.
