Ohio rebels against Obama climate change agenda with energy bill

Ohio energy billThe coal-heavy state of Ohio rebelled against Barack Obama's climate change agenda on Friday, becoming the first state to roll back measures promoting wind and solar power and energy efficiency.

The bill signed into law by Ohio's governor, John Kasich, puts a two-year freeze on measures requiring power companies to obtain some of their electricity from wind and solar power, and reduce demand for electricity.

The move will make it harder for Ohio to meet new standards unrolled by the Environmental Protection Agency earlier this month cutting carbon pollution from power plants by a national average of 30%, by 2030, opponents of the new measure said.

The new law was seen as a big win for conservative groups such as the American Legislative Exchange Council (Alec) which has been trying to overturn similar legislation across the country.
