Operator

Good day, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the second quarter Westar Energy Incorporated earnings conference call. (Operator Instructions)

I would now like to turn the conference over to your host, Mr. Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations.

Bruce Burns

Good morning. I am Bruce Burns, Director of Investor Relations for Westar Energy. Welcome to our second quarter conference call.

Last night, we filed our 10-Q and posted it along with the earnings release and supplemental materials on our website at westarenergy.com. They can be found under Supplemental Materials within the Investors section.

Some of our remarks will be forward-looking. So I remind you of uncertainties inherent in our comments during this call or that we may have included in materials in the supplemental release.

Making the remarks this morning are Tony Somma, CFO; and Mark Ruelle, CEO. We also have a number of our senior management team with us to answer questions.

Tony will offer some highlights on the quarter, comment on guidance and major projects. Then Mark will update you on regulatory activities and comment about EPA regulations that have been so much in the news recently. He'll also share some perspective on the Kansas economy and comment on a few organizational changes.
