AN  ACT  to  amend the executive law, in relation to requiring an annual
  report of all fossil fuel related tax expenditures; and to provide for
  the expiration of fossil fuel related tax expenditures

  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 the use of fossil fuels result  in  greenhouse  gas  emis-
sions.  The  state  has  a  goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by
eighty percent below 1990 levels  by  2050  to  combat  climate  change.
Therefore,  the  state has an interest in reducing tax expenditures that
support fossil fuels. By creating a process through which  the  legisla-
ture  would  review  existing  fossil fuel tax expenditures on a regular
basis, the state can better ensure that they are in the public interest.
  § 2. Subdivision 1 of section 181 of the executive law is  amended  by
adding two new paragraphs (c) and (d) to read as follows:
  (C)  "FOSSIL  FUEL"  SHALL  MEAN  COAL, KEROSENE, OIL, OTHER PETROLEUM
PRODUCTS, AND FUEL GASES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO METHANE,  NATURAL
GAS, LIQUIFIED NATURAL GAS AND MANUFACTURED FUEL GASES.
  (D) "FOSSIL FUEL RELATED TAX EXPENDITURES" SHALL MEAN TAX EXPENDITURES
THAT  DIRECTLY  SUPPORT, ENCOURAGE OR HAVE A SIGNIFICANT RELATIONSHIP TO
THE PRODUCTION,  TRANSMISSION,  DISTRIBUTION,  TRANSPORTATION,  STORAGE,
SALE, PURCHASE, DELIVERY, CONSUMPTION OR USE OF FOSSIL FUELS.
  §  3.  Paragraphs  (f)  and (g) of subdivision 2 of section 181 of the
executive law, as added by chapter 23 of the laws of 1990,  are  amended
and two new paragraphs (h) and (i) are added to read as follows:
  (f)  comment, if any, on the effectiveness and efficiency of other tax
expenditures; [and]

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

Sponsor's Position

New York should not spend billions to encourage the use of fossil fuels. It's time to invest in the energy of the future, not the past.
