(Jefferson City) The Missouri Public Service Commission has denied a request filed by the Consumers Council of Missouri which sought issuance of an emergency rule that would temporarily prevent electric, natural gas and water disconnections through March 31st because of the pandemic.

According to the P.S.C., the commission found the request does not meet the criteria for the issuance of an emergency rule.

The P.S.C. says their current program that is in place by Missouri utility companies to avoid disconnections during the pandemic should be allowed an opportunity to work and say the program has been working.
