The Missouri House has approved an appropriations bill aimed at helping low-income Missourians pay for their home heating costs. The House has voted to fully fund Utilicare, the state’s program to help vulnerable Missourians with their winter utility costs. The $6.3-Million supplemental appropriation passed by the House would ensure funding is available this year. Last year, the Legislature approved a $6.1-Million emergency supplemental appropriation to fully fund Utilicare for more than 12,000 low-income households. The measure now goes to the Senate.
