The battle over coal-fired power plants in Kansas has reached the point where Sunflower Electric Power Corp. has stated that June 1st is the deadline for the Kansas Legislature to approve the plants. If nothing occurs by then there is a good chance the plants will not move forward. Earl Watkins Jr, Sunflower Electric Power Corp. president and CEO, said, "In dealing with a lot of people in the project, we have said that we think June 1 is a time when we should take a deep breath, look at the project and see what viability it still has." While the House voted last week to approve the plants, it did not get to the two-thirds amount needed to prevent a veto by Gov. Sebelius.
