A02572 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A2572
 
SPONSOR: Englebright (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law and the transporta- tion corporations law, in relation to prohibiting state authorizations related to certain offshore oil and natural gas production   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To prohibit oil and natural gas drilling in New York's coastal areas.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would amend Environmental Conservation Law § 23-1101 to prohibit the leasing of state-owned underwater coastal lands for oil and natural gas drilling and add a new § 23-1105 to prevent the Department of Environmental Conservation and the Office of General Services from authorizing leases that would result in the increase of oil or natural gas production from federal waters. In addition, the bill would amend the Transportation Corporations Law to restrict the powers of such corporations to develop pipelines associated with the delivery of natural gas or oil from the North Atlantic Planning Area.   DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ORIGINAL AND AMENDED VERSION (IF APPLICABLE): Not applicable.   JUSTIFICATION: In a Presidential Executive Order issued on April 28, 2017, President Trump announced an "America-First Offshore Energy Strategy." The imple- mentation of this Executive Order included the United States Department of the Interior's (DOI) January 4, 2018 announcement regarding plans for the expansion of natural gas and oil drilling, and the release of the "2019-2024 National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Draft Proposed Program," by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). The federal proposed offshore drilling expansion includes the potential lease of acreage in federal offshore areas such as the approximately 270 million-acre Atlantic Region. The Atlantic Region, which extends north to Canada, east to the territorial waters of the Bahamas, and south to the territorial waters of Cuba, is divided into four planning areas - North Atlantic (which includes New York), Mid-Atlantic, South Atlantic, and Straits of Florida. The BOEM proposal includes a total of nine lease sales in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) of the Atlantic Region, with two potentially taking place in the North Atlantic area that includes New York. Drilling off New York's Atlantic Coast has been off limits for decades and as a result, some of the State's laws regulating oil and natural gas drilling have not kept pace. This legislation would remedy that over- sight and prohibit the use of the State's underwater lands for drilling. Such a prohibition is in keeping with New York's coastal management practices, and also protects endangered and threatened species, such as the North Atlantic right whale, and the State's recreational and commer- cial fishing industries. In addition, this legislation, based in part on legislation from California, would prohibit DEC and OGS from providing leases that would result in the increase of oil or natural gas production from federal waters.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2018: A.9819 (similar) (Englebright) - Passed the Assembly.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
