published by Andrew - September 21st, 2017

New York – Today, State Senator Liz Krueger and Assemblymember Kevin Cahill announced the introduction of a bill to tackle counterproductive state fossil fuel subsidies, shining a light on and potentially halting tax breaks, credits and refunds for the use of dirty fossil fuels.  The legislation would require the Governor to submit an annual analysis of all fossil fuel related tax expenditures, including recommendations regarding continuation, modification or repeal of some of the worst offenses.  It also implements a 3-year sunset provision for all current and future fossil fuel related tax expenditures.  The state-level measure is the first in the country to specifically target fossil fuel tax subsidies and create a regular public review process.  Sen. Krueger and Assm. Cahill explained the need for the bill in an op-ed this morning in the Albany Times Union, which can be viewed here.
