Preserves preexisting federal regulations on the use of hydrofluorocarbons in state law by phasing out those compounds in favor of alternatives with lower global warming potential. Establishes a preference in state procurement for products that do not contain hydrofluorocarbons. Directs the Department of Health and the State Energy Office to study how to increase the use of refrigerants with low global warming potential, reduce the use of hydrofluorocarbons, and recommend how to fund, structure, and prioritize a state program that supports the elimination of legacy uses of hydrofluorocarbons.
