Finished with Out-of-State Special Interests Moving the Goal Posts on Affordable Energy for Missouri

The short of it – after acceding to all the demands of the special interest opponents of the early site permit legislation – those opponents have now said they can’t support a bill unless it essentially has the support of every person in the state of Missouri. I’m tired of playing Charlie Brown to the Lucy of a handful of out-of-state publicly-traded companies more concerned about next quarter’s earnings report than the long term future of our state. I believe the other supporters of the bill are as well. Maybe we’ll just wait until 2013 and pass it without acceding to any of their demands.
