   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri regulators have approved an infrastructure surcharge for natural gas customers of Ameren Missouri.

   The Public Service Commission says the surcharge will cost residential customers 75 cents per month.

   Ameren Missouri sought the surcharge for infrastructure improvements it has made since the start of 2011. Its costs for replacing and relocating natural gas pipelines are not included in its rates.

   St. Louis-based Ameren Missouri has about nearly 127,000 natural gas customers in Missouri.

   JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Governor Jay Nixon vetoed legislation that would have expanded an infrastructure surcharge for gas companies.

   Gas utilities have been allowed to seek approval from the Public Service Commission to levy a surcharge for infrastructure replacements. The charge is levied between formal rate cases, and the gas companies must file for a more involved rate case every three years.

   The legislation would have required full rate cases every five years and would have increased the cap on how much gas companies could collect through the surcharge.

   Nixon said the legislation also would have allowed companies to recover from customers much of the uncollectable debt from customers who do not pay.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - State lawmakers are considering several proposals to improve infrastructure that could hit Missourians' wallets.

One proposal could require residents to pay a higher sales tax in order to pay for transportation projects, and another would let electric utilities seek a surcharge to recoup costs from infrastructure projects.

A third measure would call for issuing several hundred million dollars in bonds to fund improvements on college campuses and state facilities. Taxes that Missourians pay could go to paying off the bonds.

Lawmakers say the influx of ideas comes because there is a new willingness to discuss major challenges facing Missouri. They are skeptical everything would pass in the same year.
