NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7736
 
SPONSOR: Englebright
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation, in relation to the investment of funds to combat climate change   PURPOSE OF THE BILL: To ensure that forty percent of overall benefits from the New York State Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act are provided to disad- vantaged communities.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This legislation would modify the investment of funds provision of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) to ensure that forty percent of overall benefits of spending on CLCPA projects and programs are provided to disadvantaged communities. This legislation would take effect immediately.   JUSTIFICATION: The bill will help improve financial parity for disadvantaged communi- ties. In the United States disadvantaged communities are least likely to have access to clean energy infrastructure and investments in the areas of housing, workforce development, pollution reduction, low income ener- gy assistance, energy, transportation and economic development. The pandemic has highlighted pervasive problems posed by systemic inequal- ity. Providing forty percent of overall benefit to disadvantaged communities from the investment of funds from the CLCPA will work to solve long- standing energy and health challenges faced by disadvantaged communi- ties. This modification to the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act will enable New York State to continue to lead the way in protecting our communities, our economy and our state.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This legislation would take effect immediately.
