Lehman lets another one get away

From the Daily Reporter:
$330 million power plant planned in Kansas

Emporia, KS – Westar Energy Inc. officials announced plans Tuesday to build a new 600 megawatt electric generating plant near Emporia that is aimed at meeting demands during peak periods.

The natural-gas-fired plant, with a cost of $330 million, will begin operating by summer 2008, initially generating up to 300 megawatts. Westar expects to break ground on the plant next summer.
Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce said it will launch a radio commercial blaming State Rep. John Lehman of Racine for the plant not being built in Wisconsin.

"First Lehman let the Honda plant get away, and now this," WMC Jim Pugh said. "Next thing you know someone will be building things in California."
