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.
