Opinion flip-flop on coal plant

coalplantKansans don’t seem to be warming to the Sebelius administration’s exhaustive efforts to block a coal-fired power plant expansion near Holcomb. Though one survey last November found that 62 percent of Kansans strongly agreed with the administration’s initial decision to deny the plant’s air-quality permit, 48 percent of the 500 Kansans surveyed earlier this month by Rasmussen Reports said the state should allow the plant to be built, compared with 32 percent against the plant.
