Legislative leaders expect another round of debate next year over whether coal-fired power plants should be built in Western Kansas.

Senate President Steve Morris of Hugoton says work has already started on a comprehensive energy bill allowing construction of the two plants outside Holcomb.

He said he would like to work with Gov. Kathleen Sebelius
on the issue.

Sebelius vetoed three bills during the 2008 session allowing the coal plants over concerns about carbon-dioxide emissions.

The legislature was unable to overturn her vetoes.
