Missouri’s 9th District Congressman hopes the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will allow a re-hearing for Ameren Missouri regarding Shoreline Management Plan changes. The congressman and eleven of his colleagues sent a letter to FERC last week asking that FERC reconsider changes that could force the removal of homes and structures on the shoreline. Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer says the rule changes could be widely interpreted.
The congressman says the federal bureaucracy is often unaware of the effects of their actions.
Luetkemeyer says the Lake of the Ozarks is unique and therefore a target.
The congressmen recommended that FERC allow Ameren to redraw their boundary line, grandfather some structures, and extend the May 2012 deadline to accommodate the company’s plans.
