Decision Whether To Extend Clean Energy Freeze Hinges On Federal Carbon Rules

As the Energy Mandates Study Committee continues gathering input, members are considering the possibility of extending the two-year freeze on green energy standards that the legislature adopted last year.

A key consideration for the panel is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's coming regulations on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, which call on states to cut CO2 emissions by 30% from 2005 levels to 2030.
