A new effort to roll back new green energy standards in Kansas utilities has stalled in the state Legislature.
The House Energy and Environment Committee tabled a bill today that would put off a requirement for utilities to generate at least 20 percent of its energy with renewable resources by the year 2020. The tabled bill would rolled back the standard to 15 percent, not 20.
A Kansas House committee approved a sweeping anti-abortion bill today.
The Federal and State Affairs Committee approved House Bill 2253, which prevents groups that provide abortion services from being involved in the state's public schools. The measure also aims to keep the state from subsidizing abortions--even indirectly--through tax exemptions or credits.
