Clean Power Plants Pushed

Laramie, Wy – Currently two proposed Wyoming Power plants have been running into permitting problems. The head of Wyoming Conservation Voters, Jason Marsden, says that is because they are using old technology to generate power. Marsden anticipates that the plants will have even more problems as stricter federal controls come into play. While it might be more expensive, Marsden is pushing the state and the companies to make sure the plants are as clean as possible.
Marsden says even the Western Governors Association is supporting the new technology. He's hoping that citizens get involved in the effort to make the plants as clean as possible.
