   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Legislative intent. In 2019, New York enacted the Climate
 Leadership and Community Protection Act to reduce the state's volume  of
 greenhouse  gas  emissions by at least 85% as compared to 1990 levels by
 the year 2050.  According to the Climate Action  Council  Scoping  Plan,
 the  transportation  sector  is responsible for approximately 28% of New
 York's total greenhouse gas emissions. Statewide  conversion  of  public
 transit  bus  fleets  is  an important undertaking required to meet this
 emission reduction mandate.
   The legislature recognizes that such a conversion will  entail  fiscal
 obligations  on  the  part  of  transit systems and utility providers in
 order to purchase new buses, renovate  or  replace  bus  depots,  expand
 utility  infrastructure  and  generation  capacity,  and other necessary
 investments to ensure reliable delivery of zero-emission  bus  services.
 Furthermore,  the legislature recognizes that there are existing revenue
 sources which currently fund public transit that rely on the consumption
