Bringing and retaining jobs in Missouri.

We need a 21st century, modernized energy grid in place if we hope to compete for new industries and retain the ones we have. Without it, we can’t begin to rival surrounding states that have already updated their energy policies, allowing them to modernize their aging electric grids, ensure better reliability, shorter outage times and protection against cyber-attacks. I urge you to take the lead on making Missouri’s electric grid a priority during the next legislative session.

Bringing new industries to Missouri and retaining jobs in Missouri through updated energy policies

Let's work together to bring jobs, clean energy, and reliable infrastructure to St. Louis

Statewide energy plan is headed to the Governor soon, at his request. Representative Rocky Miller (R-Osage Beach), who serves as chairman of the House committee, thinks a different approach to Missouri’s energy rates should be considered. “Currently, we litigate on past usage and then try to figure out the rates going forward from past usage. I’d rather look at what we plan to do in the future and let’s design our rates accordingly. Then we can talk about how the utilities are spending their money,” said Miller. He thinks the approach could lead to lower electric rates in Missouri. Missouri's existing rate structure is over 100 years old and we are falling behind other states by failing to modify our approach. This change will be better for the City of St. Louis and Missouri. Thank you for your consideration of supporting this position.

St Louis is a tech hub, let's modernize Missouri's energy infrastructure

We need a 21st century, modernized energy grid in place if we hope to compete for new industries and retain the ones we have. We are competing in the startup and emerging markets in technology but not with keeping our energy grid up to today's and future standards. Without it, we can’t begin to rival surrounding states that have already updated their energy policies, allowing them to modernize their aging electric grids, ensure better reliability, shorter outage times and protection against cyber-attacks. I urge you to take the lead on making Missouri’s electric grid a priority during the next legislative session.

Protect our electric grid from cyber-attacks.

One of the biggest threats facing America is cyber-security. We need to upgrade our aging electric infrastructure to secure us from hackers. I urge you to support legislation that helps harden our electrical grid and protect us from cyber-attacks.

Let's bring more jobs to Missouri

Missouri needs to move into the 21st century, and modernize our energy grid in order to compete for new industries and hold on to the ones we have. Otherwise, we won’t stand a chance against surrounding states that have already updated their energy policies. Updated policies could help us to ensure better reliability, shorter outage times and protect against cyber-attacks. I urge you to take the lead on making Missouri’s electric grid a priority during the next legislative session.

It's time to update our electric infrastructure now!

Our aging electric infrastructure is over 50 years old and approaching its end of life. We need to act now before we are facing a real crisis. This issue needs to be a high priority for the next legislative cycle. Without this, we will be risking cybersecurity issues, reliability issues, and losing new industry to other states that have updated their electric infrastructure.

Create and retain jobs in Downtown by modernizing our energy infrastructure

Create jobs in St. Louis and downtown by improving energy investments in Missouri. I recently started working for Ameren and located to the Downtown loft district. By improving our energy regulatory framework Missouri can move out of the bottom 5 states nationwide and increase investments that create good well paying jobs that will bring residents to downtown and improve the St. Louis area overall. Missouri lags the rest of the country in smart grid technology solar power and renewable generation. I encourage you to seek and vote for legislation to improve energy investments in this state to create jobs and local businesses and residents.

We need to update our aging electric infrastructure now

Our aging electric infrastructure is over 50 years old and nearing its end of life. If we don’t do something now, we will be in a real crisis. I urge you to move electric infrastructure to the top of the priorities list for the next legislative cycle.

Open Season on Black Citizens?

Police not only need body cams, but requiring all Police have better training, college degrees & purchasing Occurrence Liability Insurance at the highest amount awarded to any victims to start. Why should the taxpayers be on the hook for these outright murders of citizens of the United States. We already pay for their guns and bullets we need to draw the line at paying for carrying the burden for wrongful deaths. Requiring these Officers buy insurance will put the burden on them and the Insurance Companies can thin the herd of these vicious animals.
