 Introduced  by Sen. KAMINSKY -- read twice and ordered printed, and when
   printed to be committed to the Committee on  Energy  and  Telecommuni-
   cations
 
 AN  ACT  to amend the public service law and the public authorities law,
   in relation to authorizing the formation of  Community  Choice  Aggre-
   gation programs in the Long Island Power Authority service territory
 
   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. Legislative findings and  intent.  The  legislature  hereby
 finds and determines that achievement of the State's emissions reduction
 targets  and  climate  goals plays a key role in the continuing vitality
 and well-being of all New Yorkers,  and  that  decisions  made  by  Long
 Islanders  regarding  their  energy  usage have the potential to signif-
 icantly impact the ability of the State to achieve  its  climate  goals.
 The legislature further finds and determines that well-designed Communi-
 ty  Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs in the Long Island Power Authority
 service territory can educate, encourage, and empower Long Islanders  to
 take  control  of  their  energy future through engagement with opportu-
 nities presented by Reforming the Energy Vision  and  the  Clean  Energy
 Fund,  as  well  as  new  Distributed  Energy  Resource and clean energy
 programs. As such, Long Island CCA programs should be developed and made
 available to Long Islanders throughout the service territory of the Long
 Island Power Authority.
   § 2. The public service law is amended by adding a new section 74-b to
 read as follows:
   § 74-B. LONG ISLAND COMMUNITY CHOICE AGGREGATION PROGRAMS. 1. FOR  THE
 PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION:
   (A)  A  "LONG  ISLAND  COMMUNITY  CHOICE AGGREGATION PROGRAM" OR "CCA"
 MEANS A PROGRAM SERVING THE INTERESTS OF ITS RESIDENTS AND APPROPRIATELY
 PROTECTING CONSUMER DATA, IN WHICH AN ELIGIBLE MUNICIPALITY EITHER ALONE
 OR JOINTLY, AFTER A PUBLIC HEARING HELD FOLLOWING PUBLIC  NOTICE,  EXER-
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
