TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ House Speaker Melvin Neufeld says there won't be any attempt to override the latest veto of a bill allowing two coal-fired power plants in southwest Kansas.

The Ingalls Republican says there won't be enough members attending the adjournment session May 29 to make an attempt possible.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius vetoed the measure last week. It was the third time she has rejected such legislation.

Neufeld is a strong supporter of the two plants. Sunflower Electric Power Corp. wants to build them in Finney County.

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