Parkinson Not Pressuring For Permit
11/09/2010
 

Gov. Mark Parkinson says he is not putting

pressure on anyone to approve a permit that would allow

construction of a controversial coal-fired power plant in southwest

Kansas.

Parkinson issued a statement Monday discussing a review of the

air permit application from Sunflower Electric Power Corp. in Hays.

The outgoing governor says the Kansas Department of Health and

Environment will review the permit application in a fair and

independent manner and will not consider unfair input.

Environmental groups oppose the plant, contending it would add

to air pollution.

Questions about the process have swirled since Rod Bremby, the

secretary of the KDHE, resigned last Tuesday. Bremby had blocked a

previous proposal for two plants, citing possible health concerns

from greenhouse gas emissions.
