An issue that some believe will reignite the wind energy industry is getting a new wave of support. A previous version of the bill stalled after the abrupt resignation of the senator who was backing it.

A northeast Ohio Republican lawmaker has reintroduced a bill to decrease wind setbacks, which is the distance a turbine must be from a property line.

Sen. Matt Dolan is the new leading voice on the issue. He says the current setbacks handcuff the wind industry.
