§ 10-101. Legislative intent and purpose. The legislature hereby
finds and declares: that adequate supplies of fuel are essential to the
health, welfare and safety of the people of the state of New York; that
any severe disruption in fuel supplied for use within the state would
cause grave hardship and pose a threat to the health and economic
well-being of the people of the state; that the federal government has
enacted into law the Emergency Petroleum Allocation Act of 1973, as
amended by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, pursuant to
which the state of New York has established a fuel set-aside program;
and that temporary and concurrent state authority for a fuel set-aside
program should be in place as the federal government terminates,
suspends or fails to implement all or part of the federal program during
the vacation or heating seasons.
