Lobbyists involved in the legislative battle over coal-fired power plants have reported spending more than $137 thousand dollars in April.

Most of the money was spent on media advertising or other campaigns designed to pressure lawmakers.

Sunflower electric power wants to build two plants in Finney County. The project has been blocked since October by Governor Sebelius' administration.

Sunflower reported spending about $70 thousand on lobbying in the month of April. Its allies spent an additional $44 thousand.
