Tomorrow at 8 a.m. a committee in the Missouri legislature will here infamous Senate Bill 207’s identical twin, House Bill 398 that would allow energy companies to dig even deeper in our pockets to charge more money for the same service.
As you have heard, the legislation that would allow energy companies to put in place a new surcharge on consumers and completely bypass real oversightwith the Missouri Public Service Commission. That means theutilities could raise their customers rates at any time without the consumer and regulatory process put in place to keep Missouri consumers and small businesses from being gouged.
The legislation is backed by the Missouri Electric Alliance, a collaboration of St. Louis-based Ameren Missouri, Kansas City Power & Light and Empire District Electric in Joplin.
Take a moment now to send your legislator a message to stand up for you against the power companies trying to get more of your money.
