Credit proposed for those who suffer electrical outages
Rep. Rachel Storch, D-St. Louis, has filed a bill that would require a $25 credit for those who are without power for 48 hours.
No hearing has been scheduled for HB 731, whose 14 co-sponsors, include Rep. Sara Lampe, D-Springfield.
The bill specifies that the outage must not be the fault of the consumer. It also requires $25 be added for each additional day the customer is without power.
