Call Today: OPPOSE SB 207 and Significant Electric Bill Increases
Please Call Key Legislators Today!!!
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch Editorial Board hit the nail on the head regarding legislation that will significantly increase electric rates for Ameren Missouri, Kansas City P&L, and Empire Electric customers.
Senate Bill 207 and House Bill 398 represent the latest attempt by Ameren Missouri and its allies to make it easier for monopoly electric utilities to collect money from its captive customers. SB 207 was originally sold as the mechanism to fund an expensive "small" nuclear reactor by its sponsor. Even the Office of Public Council, the office that defends electric customers in electric rate cases, opposes SB 207 and HB 398.
MCE's Safe Energy Director, Ed Smith, has been to Jefferson City several times this year to testify against these bills and now it's up to you!Senate Bill 207 could be debated in the Senate this Monday (3/11/2013). House Bill 398 will be voted on in the House Utilities Committee this Wednesday.
Call your state senator today, tomorrow, and all this week. Leave a message asking your senator to VOTE NO on SB 207. Get your family, friends, and neighbors to call too!
