(KMOV)—Ameren-Illinois plans to close two power plants by the end of the year, officials say.

Ameren executives are blaming the closures on the cost to comply with new pollution rules. That is the main reason plants in Meredosia and Hutsonville will be closed.
 
The closures will cost about 90 people their jobs. Ameren officials say some of the 90 could be reassigned to other locations.
