Some officials are uneasy about the incentives that would bring a coal-gasification plant to the Commonwealth.
Henderson County Judge-Executive Sandy Watkins is conflicted about the idea of giving a company tax incentive to build a coal-to-natural gas plant in his county.
Watkins knows western Kentucky needs the jobs, but is unsure about a proposal to give a portion of that tax revenue back to the coal industry.
The incentive is central to a package. The Fletcher administration says the state needs to persuade Peabody Energy to build a $3-billion plant.
The legislature is expected to take up the incentive package on Aug. 20 in a special session.
