State efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could have an effect not only on Kansas power plants, but on agriculture and anyone who owns a vehicle.

That's according to a state audit for the Kansas Energy and Environmental Policy group, which was created to find ways to combat climate change.

The audit says electric utilities would be most affected by changes, although other people would also likely feel the affects.

The group is expected to have energy policy recommendations ready to present to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and legislators in the coming weeks.

Also, some expect the Obama administration will institute some form of carbon-dioxide tax on businesses to curb emissions. A Kansas consumer watchdog said those costs likely would be passed on to customers.
