Senator Jill Schupp Stands Up For Consumers


This week, Senator Jill Schupp (D-St. Louis County) argued on the floor against unjustified surcharges on our gas utility bills.

Our gas company was found to have charged us, their customers, for projects that were not allowed under current law.  When they lost their argument in court, they decided to come to the General Assembly to change the rules.

Senator Jill Schupp stood up against these unjustified charges and was able to get the bill amended to require the gas monopoly to pay us back and require the gas monopoly to refund over $14 million in prior illegal charges, and to prevent the utility from charging us extra for replacing pipes that have not yet worn out.

Standing up to massive utility companies and their army of lobbyists isn't easy, so take the time to thank Sen. Schupp for standing up for Missouri consumers.
