Missouri Governor Names Energy Task Force

DECEMBER 28, 2005 - Posted at 7:49 a.m. CST

 

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - Governor Blunt says high fuel prices are forcing the state to look for ways to reduce fossil fuel consumption, and to look into alternate energy sources.

Yesterday, the governor created a nine-member energy task force.  It will look for ways the state can promote renewable resources, and help Missourians who need help paying their heating bills.

The panel will be led by the head of the Public Service Commission.  It includes the leaders of the House and Senate, the lieutenant governor, the state public counsel, a representative from the department of agriculture and natural resources and a member from the House and Senate energy committees.

No formal date has been set for the panel to begin meeting.
