Consumers Council of Missouri advocates for the interests of individual consumers collectively -- primarily on utility laws and regulations; access to health care; and personal finances, such as borrowing and banking.
Consumers Council of Missouri's roots go back to 1972 when it was incorporated as the Utility Consumers Council of Missouri. In 2006 it reinvigorated itself by dropping "utility" from its name in recognition of consumer interest being about more than just utilities. Consumer interests were being ignored in legislative halls in lieu of well-financed lobbies for big business. Organized to educate and empower consumers statewide and to advocate for their collective interests, the Consumers Council works to restore the historic balance between consumer and business interests. Although we do not represent individual consumers, we are a membership organization working for the common interests of all Missouri consumers. The Consumers Council of Missouri is a non-governmental, non-profit organization. The Consumers Council of Missouri uses consumer experts to help keep the public informed and to analyze important issues in the areas of energy, insurance and finance. The organization issues consumer alerts, holds forums, writes articles and maintains a website (www.MOConsumer.org)
