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.
