(Jefferson City) (AP) – A leading state senator wants Missouri’s utility regulators to reconsider plans for a public hearing on legislation that would let power companies seek surcharges for infrastructure between rate cases.

The Public Service Commission scheduled a hearing on the bill April 8 after receiving a request from Republican state Sen. Eric Schmitt.

The commission can hold a public hearing and take testimony about bills at the request of the Legislature.

But in a letter to the PSC on Monday, Republican Senate President Pro Tem Tom Dempsey said he’s unaware of the panel ever holding such a hearing at the request of a single lawmaker.

Public Service Commission Chairman Robert Kenney says Dempsey has raised some “valid and interesting points” to cons.
