State regulators meet this week to decide whether to expedite the implementation of a new law that would change environmental standards.

It includes a cut to the number of air quality monitors in the state and allows companies to avoid fines if they self-report an environmental violation. 

Meanwhile, Duke Energy has filed a complaint against NC WARN, an environmental group, for distributing solar power to a church in Greensboro. Duke Energy says state law prohibits third-party sales.
