Missouri Ballot Issues: Proposition C

http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/kcur/local-kcur-779841.mp3

St. Louis, MO – More than 25 states require that a portion of electricity comes from renewable sources, like wind, solar, biomass, and water.

On election day, Missouri voters will decide whether their state should have such a requirement too.

If Proposition C passes, the state's largest utilities will have to get at least 15 percent of their electricity from renewable resources by 2021.

As KWMU's Maria Hickey reports, supporters based the measure on a similar referendum in Colorado.
