TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Six House members have changed their minds about two coal-fired power plants in southwest Kansas.
It's made the fight over those plants close.
Legislators approved a bill Friday to allow the plants. In the House, the vote was 83-41. Supporters wanted a two-thirds majority, or 84 of 125 votes. That's the margin they'd need to override a veto by Gov. Kathleen
Sebelius. She vetoed a similar bill last month.
Four Republicans who'd voted against the earlier bill supported the latest one. They were Brenda Landwehr, of Wichita; Judy Morrison, of Shawnee; Virgil Peck, of Tyro, and JoAnn Pottorff, of Wichita.
Joining them were Democrats Jerry Henry, of Cummings, and Steve
Luckert of Sabetha.
