#Moleg2019: Utility Consumers Unscathed
The 2019 Missouri legislative session has come to an end and while many bills made it past the finish line, utility consumer bills were successfully blocked.
Consumers Council of Missouri, all said and done, had a successful 2019 session with two major victories. We helped stop an attempt in the Missouri House to raise water rates by 15%! And in the last week, we helped prevent a measure to block lower cost environmentally friendly electricity to our state’s energy markets. This bill passed the House but was blocked in the Senate before it could become become law!
Thanks for all your help in ensuring that consumers were heard in the Missouri State Capitol.
