Governor Sam Brownback says he's been calling members of Congress and urging them to extend a wind power tax credit. It's set to expire in just over a year. The credit is aimed at spurring wind farm growth. It helped BP develop the state's largest wind farm, slated to begin operation next year. Brownback says cutting off the credit abruptly is a bad idea.
Brownback says ending the credit would be a hard hit to the wind power industry and could hurt new development in Kansas.
