An electric utility is suing the state of Kansas for denying said utility the permit to build more coal-fired electricity generation facilities in rural western Kansas. It's been thirteen unhappy months for Sunflower Electric Power since Kansas refused them the air quality permits for the additional coal-burning plants.

The state's denial cited CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases. The utility charges they are facing unfair discriminiation because all other similar permits since 2003 have been granted. The battle now wil continue in the federal court system.
