Procedural Schedule Suspended In Ameren Missouri Case
JEFFERSON CITY—The Missouri Public Service Commission has indefinitely suspended the procedural schedule in the Ameren Missouri Labadie case and cancelled hearings scheduled for November 12-14, 2013 after reviewing an unopposed motion filed by Ameren Missouri.
In January, Ameren Missouri filed an application with the Missouri Public Service Commission seeking a certificate of convenience and necessity from the Commission to expand the boundaries of its Labadie Energy Center to permit the construction and operation of a utility waste landfill.
In its order suspending the procedural schedule and cancelling the scheduled November hearings, the Commission noted that Ameren Missouri explained that the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has required the utility company to submit a revised Construction Permit Application as part of DNR’s review of Ameren Missouri’s plans for the waste landfill at Labadie. Until that revised application is filed with DNR, Ameren Missouri believes the proceedings before the Missouri Public Service Commission cannot go forward.
In its motion, Ameren Missouri asked that proceedings in the PSC case be suspended until after it files its revised application with DNR, at which time the parties to the PSC case will submit to the Commission a revised procedural schedule.
Ameren Missouri indicated in its motion that it had consulted with all of the other parties to the PSC case and none opposed the request to suspend the procedural schedule.
