TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Gov. Kathleen Sebelius says there's no deal yet on two proposed coal-fired power plants in southwest Kansas.
For several weeks, legislators, her administration and officials with Sunflower Electric Power Corp. have been discussing the company's proposed plants.
Sunflower wants to build the two plants outside Holcomb. The project is worth $3.6 billion, and many legislators view it as economic development.
But Sebelius' top environmental regulator refused in October to issue an air-quality permit. He cited the plants' potential carbon dioxide emissions.
Last week, Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson said Friday that the administration was hopeful it could reach an agreement.
