Renewable Energy Backers Mull Ballot Measure
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Supporters of a renewable energy law approved by Missouri voters in 2008 are examining whether to propose another initiative petition next year.
The 2008 law included a requirement for investor-owned utilities to use increasing amounts of renewable resources to produce electricity.
But the measure has hit some stumbling blocks, including controversy as Missouri regulators developed rules for implementing the new law.
Backers of the 2008 measure are now studying whether to put another question before voters next year. PJ Wilson, of the advocacy group Renew Missouri, said Thursday that supporters are completing a feasibility study for a possible ballot measure.
