 AN  ACT  to  amend  the  environmental  conservation law, in relation to
   establishing the "clean fuel standard of 2021"
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1.  Legislative findings and declarations:
   1. The transportation sector in New York is a leading source of crite-
 ria  pollutants  and the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions that
 endanger public health  and  welfare  by  causing  and  contributing  to
 increased  air  pollution  and  dangerous  climate  change.  Meeting the
 pollution reduction requirements of the Climate Leadership and  Communi-
 ties  Protection  Act will require sharp decreases in transportation-re-
 lated emissions.
   2. Shifting  from  today's  petroleum-based  transportation  fuels  to
 alternative  fuels has the potential to significantly reduce transporta-
 tion emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases and is recommended
 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as an important pathway
 for holding global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
