As a customer of Ameren Missouri I was happy to hear that lawmakers are considering a bill that will cut my monthly bill by 3-4% and that over several years my rates would be capped at 2.85%, which would be a relief to recent unpredictable rate increases.

I find it hard to understand why these rate cuts would not be broadly supported by customers, businesses and legislators. And in addition to a rate decrease, we can upgrade our electrical system to be modern and smart, which could also assist with me controlling my energy costs.

Count me in favor of cutting and capping my electric rates!
