E-M:/ Governor's Coal Veto Upheld

— Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ veto of two coal-fired power plants survived a furious charge from legislative leaders on Thursday.

In a dramatic showdown, the Kansas House voted 80-45, falling four votes short of the required two-thirds majority needed in the 125-member chamber to override the veto.

“This is good news for Kansas,” Sebelius said.
