Sierra Club files new lawsuit over Kansas coal plant

The Sierra Club filed a lawsuit Friday challenging Kansas’ latest move to allow construction of a $2.8 billion coal-fired power plant, partly because the state wouldn’t regulate the plant’s greenhouse gas emissions. The environmental group also said in its filing with the state Court of Appeals that the Kansas Department of Health and Environment isn’t imposing adequate limits on other pollutants, including mercury, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide.
