Coal-Fired Plant Fight Continues
09/22/2010
 

Environmentalists are asking federal

officials to step in and slow the push in Kansas to grant an

air-quality permit to a new coal-fired power plant.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment hopes to decide

whether to issue the permit to Sunflower Electric Power Corp. by

the end of the year. That would allow the plant to avoid new

federal rules on greenhouse gas emissions.

The Sierra Club contends it's not enough time for KDHE to fully

consider comments it will receive about the $2.8 billion project

through late October.

Attorneys for the Sierra Club sent a letter late Monday to the

Environmental Protection Agency's regional administrator, asking

him to intervene.

A spokeswoman for Hays-based Sunflower says the company is not

surprised.
