A04302 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4302
 
SPONSOR: Englebright
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to providing that one hundred percent of in-state sales of new passenger cars and trucks shall be zero-emissions by two thousand thirty-five   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To decrease greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from the trans- portation sector.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would: *amend the Environmental Conservation Law by adding a new § 19-0306-b and establishing a State zero-emissions goal for cars and trucks to be accomplished as follows: -100% of in-state sales of new passenger cars and trucks would be zero-emissions by 2035; -100% of medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles would be zero-emissions by 2045; and -100% of off-road vehicles and equipment would be zero-emissions by 2035 where feasible; *direct the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), in consul- tation with other agencies, to: -develop a zero-emissions vehicle market development strategy by January 1, 2023, and, -identify near-term actions and investment strategies to improve sustainable transportation and freight and transit options.   JUSTIFICATION: The aggressive greenhouse gas emission reduction goals established in the New York State Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) require aggressive action. Estimates indicate that personal transportation accounts for roughly 20% of greenhouse gas emissions. Establishing zero-emission goals and a strategy to eliminate these emis- sions will be an important step in achieving the CLCPA goals.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2020: A.11087 - Referred to Environmental Conservation Committee.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
