TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas House committee heard from both sides of a controversy over proposed restrictions on wind farm developments.

Lawmakers are considering a bill that would require any new turbines to be installed at least 1.5 miles from homes and 3 miles from an airport, park or hunting area.

On Thursday, wind farm operators told the House Committee on Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications the bill was an attack on the free market.
