The Ohio Senate has voted for a two-year freeze on energy efficiency and renewable energy standards that were approved by all but one lawmaker in 2008. Supporters say those mandates are working and full implementation would be good for the environment. Opponents, who will work on relaxing the rules during the freeze, say they're too costly and too extreme.
