JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri House Speaker Tim Jones says energy policy will be part of his agenda for this year's legislative session.

The Eureka Republican says lawmakers need to ensure the state's utility regulation framework does not block new developments involving coal and natural gas.

Jones also says lawmakers need to look at investing in an aging infrastructure to keep some of Missouri's utility rates among the lowest in the nation.

Lawmakers returned to the state Capitol on Wednesday for the start of the 2014 session.
