TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Speaker Melvin Neufeld says House leaders will decide Wednesday whether to attempt to override the latest veto
of an energy bill.

Governor Sebelius vetoed a measure last week to allow two coal-fired power plants in southwest Kansas. It was the third time she has rejected such legislation.

Legislators are out of session, having finished almost all of their business for the year. But they have a brief adjournment ceremony scheduled for May 29th. They could take up work that day.

Neufeld, an Ingalls Republican, is a strong supporter of the two plants. Sunflower Electric Power Corporation. wants to build them in Finney County.

But Sebelius' administration has blocked the plants over their potential carbon dioxide emissions.
