Good going Gov

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius vetoed building 2 new coal generated power plants in Kansas because her state would barely benefit from it. Out of 1400 megawatts only 200 would stay in Kansas, the rest would be exported to Texas and Colorado.

Yes at this time with the current administration I say burn it if you like. But, I have also lived in states that have been forced to export energy to California which raised the cost for the inhabitants of said states.

“I vetoed that legislation because while the rest of the country was trying to reduce greenhouse emissions, Kansas would be creating massive new emissions for power we don’t need. Additionally, it appeared that federal legislation that would penalize new carbon dioxide emissions was on the horizon leaving Kansans vulnerable for years to come.
