ST. LOUIS, July 15, 2002 — The regulatory law judge in AmerenUE’s Missouri electric rate case on Friday announced the suspension of public hearings that the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC) convened July 11 in Jefferson City, Mo.
These hearings were temporarily suspended until 8:30 a.m., July 16. Upon announcing this suspension, the regulatory law judge stated that the parties have reached “an agreement in principle” on the issues in the case.
Over the next several days, the parties to the case will be in the process of preparing a formal written agreement that will be submitted to the MoPSC. No details on the agreement will be released until the parties collectively review, approve, and file that agreement with the MoPSC. Any agreement reached by the parties must ultimately be approved by the MoPSC.
AmerenUE is a subsidiary of St. Louis-based Ameren Corp. Ameren companies serve 1.5 million electric customers and 300,000 natural gas customers in a 44,500-square-mile area of Missouri and Illinois.
