   INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Indiana lawmakers took on gun regulations and an energy efficiency program as they continue working toward the close of their 2014 session.
 
   Senate lawmakers approved Monday placing the state's energy efficiency program on hold for a year while they study the costs and benefits of the program. That measure now heads to Gov. Mike Pence's desk for consideration.
 
   Meanwhile, House and Senate negotiators spent the morning grilling an opponent of a guns measure that would allow parents to keep guns in their cars while on school property.
 
   A number of top-tier issues have yet to be ironed out, including much of the governor's legislative agenda.
 
   The Indiana General Assembly is scheduled to wrap up work by the end of the week.
