Rally for Public Comment Against Holcomb Coal Plant!

Please join Sierra Club & GPACE for a rally right before the Overland Park coal plant hearing on Monday! Details below -- invite friends! These hearings could be the last opportunity for the public to comment on a coal plant that has been the source of debate for years, that has unfairly dominated two straight legislative sessions, and could have long-term implications to our health and environment....Let's stop this coal plant once and for all! Details below and attached. Spread the word!

When: 1:30 pm on August 2nd

Where: Overland Park, Blue Valley Northwest High School (135th and Switzer) – same location as the hearing (Note: the hearing will be in the auditorium, we will meet in the Commons Area, just inside the main entrance to the school)
