Kansas high court to hear coal-fired plant lawsuit
The Kansas City Star : August 19, 2012

  Summary:  Environmental groups are asking the Kansas Supreme Court to overturn a 2010 state permit issued for construction of a $1.5 billion coal-fired power plant. The court will hold a hearing on the request at the end of August. Sunflower Electric Power Corp is one of the development partners, whose project would add a major new air pollution source to a region that doesn’t need the power and is blessed with some of the best wind energy potential in the nation.

“The state negotiated the deal with Sunflower to break a political stalemate, which resulted in issuance of a KDHE permit that falls short of Kansas' obligations under the federal Clean Air Act,” said Earthjustice attorney Amanda Goodin. “The final regulatory process was overly influenced by Sunflower executives,” she added.
