Missouri House Approves Hydroelectric Bill
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Republican-led Missouri House has approved legislation allowing more hydroelectric power to count toward the state's renewable energy requirement.
A 2008 law approved by voters requires investor-owned utilities to use renewable energy sources for gradually increasing amounts of their electricity generation. That law restricted how hydroelectric power could count toward the requirement. The bill cleared the House yesterday on a vote of 95-46.
