Dear Legislator,

I am writing this in regards to the high Ameren rate increase that is planned to take
place in October 2008.  I simply cannot afford this type of increase.  Not only will this
increase be burdensome during winter, I cannot imagine the expense of using my air
conditioner once summer arrives.  

As your constituent, I am pleading for your attention to this very important problem.

Sincerely,


_______________________________________
