Kansas (TGW) – The Democratic governor of Kansas vetoed Republican legislation that would have allowed a coal fired power plant to expand and emit 11 million more tons of greenhouse gases per year.

The bill would have allowed Sunflower Electric Power Corp to add two 700-megawatt units at a facility in western Kansas.

The Kansas Health and Environment Secretary turned down the plant last year because of environmental concerns. The bill sought to overturn the ruling.

The governor, Kathleen Sebelius, also issued an executive order creating an energy and environmental policy advisory group make recommendations to the governor on how to reduce Kansas' greenhouse gas emissions.
