Missouri Dems refuse to sign committee’s energy report

In 2009, lawmakers in Jefferson City passed legislation charging a panel of House and Senate members to look into Missouri’s Energy Future.

The 10-member committee was given a clear task: “Determine the best strategy to ensure a plentiful, affordable and clean supply of electricity that will meet the needs of the people and businesses of Missouri for the next twenty-five years and ensure that Missourians continue to benefit from low rates.”

It was a tall order for a few months’ effort but, late last month, the final report was released. It was so off-base that all four Democrats refused to sign it.

After the jump, read the report.
