JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri utilities are looking to Kansas companies to help meet carbon dioxide emission targets proposed by a federal agency.

In June, the Environmental Protection Agency released a proposal that offered specific emission targets for each state, the first of which would kick in by 2020. The rule is expected to be finalized next year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Empire District Electric Co. and Kansas City Power and Light are utility companies that serve customers in Missouri and Kansas.

Both utilities say Kansas wind turbines could play a major role in helping Missouri meet its EPA-proposed targets. But one of the utilities says that assumes both states are willing to work together.
