SS/SCS/SB 900 - This act creates a mechanism for school districts to aggregate purchases natural gas through a not-for- profit school association. During the first year participation is limited to public schools and thereafter to all schools or school districts for elementary and secondary education. Missouri gas corporations are required to file a set of small volume transportation schedules or tariffs applicable to public school districts by August 1, 2002. Minimum requirements for the schedules filed with the Public Service Commission are established. Provisions for the review of this experimental program are provided. Reports regarding progress in the program are to be filed annually with the Generally Assembly beginning in 2003. These provisions will terminate on June 1, 2005.
The act also gives the Public Service Commission the authority to refund ratepayers for unauthorized use charges, penalties and refunds from pipelines after an evidentiary hearing.
This act is identical to SB 1235 and HB 1482 (2002).
This act contains an emergency clause.
