Tiahrt: Victory for Kansas Common Sense

May 5, 2009

Today is a victory for Kansas common sense,” said Tiahrt. “After a year and a half of delayed Kansas jobs and lost economic opportunities for our state, I am pleased an agreement has been reached that will allow new electrical generating power to be produced in Western Kansas. I commend the tireless efforts by Sunflower Electric Power Corporation, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, our rural electric cooperatives and state senators and representatives who remained committed to securing more electrical generating capacity in Kansas. I am pleased Sunflower Electric and Governor Parkinson were able to reach an agreement that will be good for our state.
