California, U.S. Washing Machine Standards Delayed

California, U.S. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's freeze on government regulations has delayed rules mandating water-efficient washing machines that would save the water-short state billions of gallons annually.

The California Energy Commission took the regulations off its meeting agenda during a recent meeting because the Schwarzenegger administration had not approved the rules, said Valerie Hall, an agency director.

A 2002 law called for the rules to be adopted by Dec. 31, 2003. Gov. Schwarzenegger's executive order delayed those and other rules because he wanted state agencies to evaluate the impact of new regulations on business.

"I'm concerned if the reason for the delay is not that they need more time, but is actually that they don't like the legislation," said Jim Metropulos, who works on water issues for the Sierra Club.

Gov. Schwarzenegger's office did not immediately respond to calls for comment. (Associated Press)
