The commission regulating Kansas utilities is going ahead with a hearing Wednesday on Westar Energy's electric rate increase request.
That's despite a proposed settlement among Westar and other parties.

It would raise the company's rates an average of 11 percent for more than 675,000 homes and businesses. That would be worth $130 million in additional revenues annually for Westar, the state's largest electric company.

KCC spokeswoman Rosemary Foreman says the hearing will give Westar and the other parties a chance to present the agreement to commissioners.
