The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced in the final moments of 2010 the emergency adoption of revisions to the state regulation implementing the Clean Air Act's New Source Review (NSR) program. According to a DEC press release: "The revised greenhouse gas regulations will shield smaller sources from regulations that are aimed at larger, more significant sources. With this revised regulation, smaller sources in New York such as schools, auto-body garages, churches, multi-family residential buildings or dwellings, warehouses, shopping centers, restaurants, and other small commercial facilities will not be subject to the federal regulation of greenhouse gases beginning January 2, 2011."
