S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 8830 I N S E N A T E April 22, 2022 ___________ Introduced by Sen. STEWART-COUSINS -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules AN ACT to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the location of environmental facilities THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds and declares that each community in the state should equitably share the responsibilities, burdens, and benefits of managing and solving the state's environmental problems and the facilities necessary to accomplish such ends. The legislature further declares that there has been an inequitable pattern in the siting of environmental facilities in minority and economically distressed communities, which have borne a disproportionate and inequi- table share of such facilities. Consistent with its commitment to providing equal justice for its citizens, the state has a responsibility to establish requirements for the consideration of such decisions by state and local governments in order to insure equality of treatment for all communities. § 2. Section 8-0105 of the environmental conservation law is amended by adding a new subdivision 9 to read as follows: 9. "DISADVANTAGED COMMUNITY" SHALL HAVE THE SAME MEANING AS SUBDIVI- SION FIVE OF SECTION 75-0101 OF THIS CHAPTER. § 3. Subdivision 2 of section 8-0109 of the environmental conservation law, as amended by chapter 219 of the laws of 1990, paragraph (h) as amended by chapter 519 of the laws of 1992, paragraph (i) as added by chapter 182 of the laws of 1990, and paragraph (i) as amended by chapter 238 of the laws of 1991, is amended to read as follows: 2. All agencies (or applicant as hereinafter provided) shall prepare, or cause to be prepared by contract or otherwise an environmental impact statement on any action they propose or approve which may have a signif- icant effect on the environment. Such a statement shall include a detailed statement setting forth the following: (a) a description of the proposed action and its environmental setting; EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
