Gov. Nixon vetoes SB240


Missouri consumers cannot afford SB240.

Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed Senate Bill (SB) 240 yesterday! The legislation would let natural gas utilities raise rates repeatedly -without close oversight for five years - and rates would go up as much as $500 million! This legislation would have hurt consumers. AARP, along with other entities, fought hard to defeat this anti-consumer legislation.
