California lawmakers are asking the governor to declassify a draft of a new energy efficiency law, saying it was rushed through before its full impact could be assessed.
The draft of the new law was released last week to the public, but critics say the legislation was rushed and incomplete.
The law, which would impose mandatory energy-saving standards on businesses and industries across the state, would require companies to report the average cost of new power plant construction and replace it with energy-efficient technologies.
The measure would require California businesses to install more than 30 percent of their new energy technology on-site by 2020.
Critics have said that is too much of a burden for businesses to meet.
