   § 2. Legislative findings. The legislature finds and declares that:
   1. The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act  (the  "CLCPA")
 created  legal  mandates for dramatic greenhouse gas emission reductions
 from all sectors of New York's economy. The CLCPA also emphasizes equity
 in addressing climate change by requiring all state agencies and author-
 ities to prioritize reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and co-pollu-
 tants in disadvantaged communities and by mandating that  certain  state
 investments deliver benefits to these communities.
   2.  Buildings  are  New  York's largest source of greenhouse gas emis-
 sions, accounting for approximately  one-third  of  the  greenhouse  gas
 emissions  in  our  state.  New York state's buildings also produce more
 local air pollution than any other state in the  country,  resulting  in
 negative health outcomes such as increased rates of asthma, particularly
 among  children,  and  heart disease. Therefore, reducing greenhouse gas
 emissions and toxic air pollution emitted  from  New  York's  buildings,
