The Missouri Energy Task Force has wrapped up months of work, approving a plan of action that is designed to help the state meet long-term energy goals while helping consumers meet their immediate needs. The plan calls for better conservation efforts and the promotion of alternative fuels, already partially met by the new 10 percent ethanol standard passed by lawmakers this year. The group also recommends seeking more funds for the Low-Income Housing Energy Assistance Plan and more of that LIHEAP money able to go to weatherization efforts. Public education efforts will also be stepped up. The report now goes to the Governor who makes the decision of how to pursue the proposals.
