The media campaign continues for two coal-fired power plants in Southwest Kansas.

Sunflower electric and affiliated group spent more than $28,000 dollars on pro-coal advertising in February.

In January, it was $137,000

Governor Sebelius is expected to veto a bill allowing the $3.6 billion dollars process.

The house today approved a pair of economic stimulus bills. One closes loopholes for out-of-state corporations and lowers taxes for other firms.
The other bill revises sales tax laws and phases in a $58 million dollar tax reduction over five years. Both will now go to the Senate.

Also Tuesday the House gave first round approval to an abortion bill. It requires women to receive more information about the fetus and the procedure before the abortion is performed.

Opponents of the bill say it's too wide-ranging.
