KS House Rejects Senate's Energy Plan

kshouse sizedThe Kansas House chamber. (Photo by Stephen Koranda)The Kansas House has rejected a bill to repeal the state’s renewable energy standards by a vote of 44-77. The standards require 20 percent of Kansas power generation to come from renewable sources by 2020. Supporters of the requirement say it has driven economic growth through the wind industry. Representative Russ Jennings is a Republican from Lakin.

Opponents of the standards argue wind energy needs to compete on its own merits without state support. The Senate passed the bill yesterday (TUE), but the House’s vote today (WED) means the issue is now on hold.
