After a meeting with it’s CEO on Thursday, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt says he is confident that property rights will be at the forefront as Ameren redraws its boundary.
Blunt says CEO Warner Baxter was urged to move quickly to bring clarity to the shoreline situation.
Ameren plans to meet with homeowners who have property issues, then submit a comprehensive boundary redraw to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in the first quarter of 2012, not June of 2012 as FERC requested.
Senator Blunt will meet with FERC next week to discuss his appropriations amendment that would require private property and private land ownership to be added to the definitions in the Federal Power Act.
Another amendment proposed by Blunt to the energy spending bill would stop any adverse action from taking place while Ameren redraws the boundary.
