Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, told a Salina crowd last week that heâ€™s hearing plenty of reaction around the state to the Kansas Department of Health and Environmentâ€™s denial of permits for more coal-fired power plants near Holcomb. In western Kansas, he said, there is a â€œreal sense of, â€˜Why are people from somewhere else telling us what to do in our own backyard?â€™â€ The reason, at least in part, is that the what starts in western Kansasâ€™ backyard wonâ€™t say there, including the proposed plantsâ€™ estimated 11 million tons of carbon dioxide a year.
