DAVILA, EPSTEIN, GALEF, HYNDMAN, LENTOL, RODRIGUEZ, SIMON -- read once and referred to the Committee on Energy AN ACT to amend the energy law, in relation to establishing a one hundred percent energy system by two thousand thirty; to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the adoption of a climate action plan; to amend the state finance law, in relation to establishing the renewable energy revolving fund; and to provide for legal standing to sue for enforcement of the state's clean energy plan THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. New York state's continued use of fossil fuels, including coal, oil, and natural gas, is having devastat- ing impacts on our climate and communities. Our state's ongoing use of nuclear fuels continues to create immensely radioactive wastes that will be dangerous to future generations for millennia. It is in the best interest of the people of New York to move the state into a clean energy revolution, meeting 100 percent of our energy needs from clean, renewa- ble sources by 2030. Transitioning to clean energy is fundamental to protecting our communities, particularly communities of color and lower income communities that are disproportionately affected by the worsening air and water quality that results from the incineration of fossil fuels. A transition to a 100 percent clean energy system will be achieved in a way that protects displaced fossil fuel workers, impacted communities, builds a stronger economy for everyone in the State, and creates hundreds of thousands of new jobs, while at the same time elimi- nating New York's contribution to the biggest environmental threat facing our planet, climate change. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
