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. 3. The Climate Leadership and Communities Protection Act directs the Department of Environmental Protection to promulgate regulations that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including from on-road vehicles. EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted. LBD01696-02-3
