(AP) - Missouri utility regulators are considering changes to recently enacted ethics rules. A main change focuses on meetings between regulators and those involved in the cases they consider.
One of the current rules bars people and groups likely to be involved in contested cases from having private discussions with commissioners about issues likely to come up in a case. Regulators are considering repealing that specific rule.
However, discussions between regulators and parties in cases would still be barred starting 60 days before the case is filed. Members of the Public Service Commission said Monday they are not trying to weaken ethics standards but want to consider whether rules can be improved. Consumer advocates say they prefer regulators keep the rule intact. Ameren Missouri suggested additional changes.
