Bill Cohen of Ohio Public Radio reports on how the state will be affected by tough new air pollution standards proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency to cut down emissions of nitrogen oxide - a major ingredient of smog. The EPA says nitrogen oxide comes mostly from coal-burning power plants in the Midwest and Ohio Valley region. Utilities there say the new EPA regulations could lead to higher prices for consumers.
