Gov. John Kitzhaber signed three pieces of energy legislation that drew broad support.

Senate Bill 692 calls for several items ˜ battery chargers, certain exterior lights, most televisions ˜ to be subject to energy efficiency standards. SB 242 sets emissions standards on, specifically, utilities that use coal to generate electricity.
