Senate Bill 564 (SB 564) recently passed the Missouri House of Representatives with widespread bipartisan support. An impressive 85% of the Missouri General Assembly voted in support of this modern energy policy legislation. SB 564 now will be sent to the Governor for signature. Once signed into law, the legislation will immediately provide a nearly 5% rate cut to Ameren Missouri's electricity consumers, create a rate freeze until 2020 and cap rates at an annual average increase of 2.85%. It will also improve Missouri’s energy grid, making it smarter and more secure, all while keeping your rates stable and predictable.
