This bill corrects an error from the original bill. Article 10 is supposed to expedite permitting, especially for solar and wind. Neither of which impact air, water, traffic, or disposal of ash and leachate that incinerators do.
The lobbyists worked to make it "fuel neutral" so the industry could try tho sneak misguided projects like this through. Incinerators should not be in an expedited process. They should be subject to local zoning and full SEQR, with an EIS.
This bill would make sure that trash incinerators get appropriate scrutiny wherever they are proposed.
This would apply at a new location if your rumor is true.
It will never pass. These politicians are just political posturing, telling you what you want to hear for votes. Remember these people have never really taken a stand against landfills and could possibly be protecting their friends who run landfills.
