Illinois environmental officials say it will be at least a year before the process of hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" is conducted in the state.

The Springfield State Journal reports the new state regulations for the practice are nearly complete.  

Marc Miller, the director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, says it will take months before permits are issued.  That's because the state still needs to hold public hearings.  

Miller says no companies have registered to conduct fracking since the state started sign-ups last month.  

Fracking uses a high-pressure mixture of water, sand or gravel and chemicals to crack underground rock formations and release oil and natural gas.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri utility regulators have signed off an agreement involving Ameren Missouri over solar rebates.

   Ameren Missouri asked the Public Service Commission last month for permission to suspend payment of the rebates.

   The agreement approved Wednesday calls for the utility to continue the rebates up to a maximum of nearly $92 million. Ameren had paid nearly $22 million from August 2012 through October of this year.

   Other parties to the agreement included the Missouri Solar Energy Industries Association and the state office that represents utility customers before the PSC.

   A 2008-voter approved law requires investor-owned utilities to derive a certain percentage of their electric generation from renewable resources. It caps rate increases derived from that measure at 1 percent.
