Nuclear bill could see debate in Missouri Senate next week
Thursday, April 7, 2011
Missouri senators soon could be debating Ameren Missouri’s proposal to have ratepayers pay the costs of seeking an early site permit for a possible second nuclear power plant in Callaway County.
Jefferson City Republican Mike Kehoe’s bill was added this week to a measure sponsored by Sen. Robin Wright-Jones, D-St. Louis, that provides a permanent funding plan for the Office of Public Counsel.
The Senate’s Commerce, Consumer Protection, Energy and the Environment Committee then recommended that the full Senate pass the bill.
