By The Telegram (Mar 17, 2017)  The Kansas Supreme Court issued a decision on Friday to uphold a permit for the proposed $2.8 billion Sunflower coal plant in Holcomb. The court rejected the legal challenge from the Sierra Club, who challenged a 2014 Kansas Department of Health and Environment decision to grant an "addendum" to a 2010 permit. The permit said the plant would comply with federal air-quality standards. In a statement posted on Sunflower’s website, Sunflower said it is pleased that the Kansas Supreme Court approved the addendum to the Holcomb Expansion air permit. "Much work — by the Court, KDHE technical staff, and Sunflower staff — has gone into making certain that the HEP air permit meets all applicable state and federal requirements," the statement reads.
