The nation's fourth-largest carbon dioxide-emitting state is about to get a new energy policy that its governor says could be a model for the entire country. This week, industry representatives, state officials, academics and environmentalists are gathering in Ohio to craft a new energy plan for the state that will culminate in a major energy proposal from Gov. John Kasich (R) by next spring. The package from Kasich will determine whether the state burns less coal, extracts more natural gas and invests more in renewable power. It also could determine the energy discussion in 2012 during the presidential campaign in a state that often makes or breaks national elections.
