Kansas Taps Wind for Jobs

A new law could bring hundreds of new jobs to Kansas and tap into the state's vast renewable energy capabilities.

The new bill revises the Economic Revitalization and Reinvestment Act to provide incentives to eligible wind and solar energy projects.

Governor Sebelius called Kansas the third best state in the nation for wind energy.

The act was part of her and Lieutenant Governor Mark Parkinson's comprehensive energy plan.

Projects eligible for incentives would require a minimum investment of $30 million in Kansas and employ at least 200 full-time workers within five years.

Governor Sebelius also signed legislation expanding the definition of eligible aviation businesses under the revitalization and reinvestment act.
