NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6652
 
SPONSOR: Englebright
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the protection of certain streams   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This act will reclassify class C waterways as streams for the purpose of protection.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 adds waterways classified as "C" to the definition of streams.   JUSTIFICATION: Class "C" waterways, which are waters designated to support fisheries and non-contact activities like boating and fishing, are not currently afforded the protection that is provided to Class A and B streams. These waterways provide critical natural habitat for fish like trout, ground- water and aquifer recharge, recreational fishing and boating, flood control, and filter harmful pollutant. If protected, more than 40 thou- sand miles of Class C streams would receive the same regulatory over- sight for Class A and B Streams including the requirement to have a permit for any disturbance.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2018: A10151 3rd Reading, Cal 248 2019-20: A8349 Passed Both Houses, Veto Memo 60   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: No cost to the state.   EFFECTIVE DATE: 90 days after the bill becomes law.
