By engaging and reaching consensus among environmental, consumer and industry groups, the Department of Energy has made rapid progress during the past several years adopting numerous new energy conservation standards for residential appliances and commercial equipment. The Appliance Standards Program, designed to save consumers money while reducing energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions, has been headed since 2010 by John Cymbalsky, who revived the languishing initiative that had been hampered by numerous lawsuits and a tug-of-war between manufacturers and environmental groups.

HOLD THAT LINE: Red Gate Liquor, which operates at the Pulaski-Saline County line, at the edge of a growing "dry" county, has put $10,000 into campaign to beat statewide alcohol sales.
