California voters are divided over a measure on the November ballot that would suspend the state's greenhouse gas law.

A new Los Angeles Times/USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences poll found state voters split over Proposition 23 on the November ballot.

The measure seeks to suspend greenhouse gas emission rollbacks for the state until unemployment drops to 5.5% for an entire year.

The measure is backed by business groups and out-of-state oil companies and is opposed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who signed the greenhouse gas bill into law.
