climate law facing opposition

California's landmark climate law, which would reduce greenhouse gas emissions and is a prototype for other states and the nation, is being attacked by businesses and the leading Republican gubernatorial frontrunner.
A group of businesses are funding a ballot measure to delay the law until the unemployment rate falls to 5.5%, while Meg Whitman, who wants to be governor, has said she will suspend it.
The issue comes down to jobs. Critics contend the law, which requires the state to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2020, will drive away businesses. Proponents, including the implementing agency California Air Resources Board, contend the climate measure will promote investments.
Here is an AP story on the matter.
