Kansas Department of Health and Environment Secretary Roderick Bremby will announce a decision Thursday on pending air-quality permits for two proposed 700 mega-watt coal-fired electricity plants in western Kansas.

The proposed $3.6 billion plants near Holcomb have been the subject of months of controversy.

Supporters say the plants will boost the Kansas economy and provide long-term inexpensive power. Opponents say the coal-produced carbon dioxide and other emissions will harm the environment and Kansans' health.

This part of the country needs the power from the influx of people from California, so if you don't like what ever decision is made go back home.
