S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 8171 I N S E N A T E January 28, 2022 ___________ Introduced by Sen. HINCHEY -- 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 enacting the carbon dioxide removal leadership act; and to repeal certain provisions of the tax law relating to taxes on carbon dioxide emissions THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. This act shall be known and may be cited as the "Carbon Dioxide Removal Leadership Act". This act directs New York state to procure carbon dioxide removal services in order to achieve statewide net zero greenhouse gas emissions pursuant to legally enforceable limits set forth in paragraph b of subdivision four of section 75-0109 of the environmental conservation law. The use of such mechanism creates a target for carbon dioxide removal by the year two thousand fifty equal to fifteen percent of statewide greenhouse gas emissions estimated as a percentage of emissions in the year nineteen hundred ninety, and shall be implemented in lieu of any alternative compliance mechanism that would permit greenhouse gas emissions offset projects. The procurement of carbon dioxide removal services shall not result in disadvantaged communities having to bear a disproportionate burden of environmental impacts, and shall incorporate preferential consideration for projects that result in quantifiable economic and social benefits for such commu- nities. § 2. The environmental conservation law is amended by adding a new article 76 to read as follows: ARTICLE 76 CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL SECTION 76-0101. DEFINITIONS. 76-0103. NEW YORK STATE CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL REVERSE AUCTION. 76-0105. CARBON DIOXIDE REMOVAL MEASUREMENT, REPORTING AND VERIFICATION. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
