BILOXI, MS (WLOX) – The Sierra Club of Mississippi is going to court to try and stop Mississippi Power from building a new power plant in Kemper County. The lawsuit was filed today in Harrison County chancery court. It challenges the decision by two members of the Mississippi Public Service Commission to reverse an earlier ruling denying the plant. Officials with Mississippi Power asked for a re-hearing and gained approval for the lignite plant the second time around. WLOX News will have more on this story later today.
