The New York Department of Environmental Conservation proposed to adopt N.Y. Comp. Codes R. & Regs. tit. 6, §496. The new section would establish a greenhouse gas emissions limit for 2030 that is equal to 60% of 1990 emissions levels and a limit for 2050 that is equal to 15% of 1990 levels. A hearing will be held October 20, 2020. Comments are due October 27, 2020. See https://www.dos.ny.gov/info/register/2020/081920.pdf (pp. 5-7).
