OREGON, Mo. (AP) - Construction is expected to begin later this year on a wind farm in northwest Missouri.
Element Power officials say the operation near Oregon in Holt County will be the largest wind farm in the state. It will generate 200 megawatts of electricity at the Mill Creek Wind Farm. The power will be sold the Kansas City Power & Light.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports if construction goes as scheduled, the wind farm is expected to begin operating by the end of 2015.
Scott Zeimetz, project manager for Element Power, says the company has not yet determined the size or number of turbines it will install on the farm.
Construction will create 300 jobs, with 12 to 14 permanent full-time jobs available when the wind farm is operating.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House is preparing to consider a proposed state budget that partly ties education funding to the strength of the economy.
House Majority Leader John Diehl says debate will begin this week on the budget for the next fiscal year. The plan endorsed by the House Budget Committee would add $122 million to the state's $3 billion in basic school funding. But if state revenues meet more optimistic projections, then it would provide a $278 million increase for schools.
The House plan would also bar universities from offering resident tuition rates to students living in the U.S. illegally.
The Republican-led committee rejected Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's proposal to expand Medicaid eligibility to more lower-income adults. But its plan would restore adult dental coverage that was previously cut from Medicaid.

CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Transit Authority officials say they'll use torches to cut a commuter train apart as they remove wreckage from an underground station after a derailment.
Christopher Bushell is the transit agency's chief infrastructure officer. He says Monday's derailment means the O'Hare International Airport station will remain closed for at least "12 to 24 hours."
Bushell says crews are inspecting the station's stairs and escalator, which was received "significant damage" when the train plowed across a platform and scaled the escalator around 3 a.m. More than 30 people were hurt, but all of their injuries are considered non-life threatening.
Workers will disassemble the train and remove it on a flatbed.
Bushell says CTA inspectors are reviewing the train's video footage as well as information from the agency's signal systems.
