(1976) Where member of commission had assumed office after conclusion of all hearings and did not participate in the decision which was certified by the participating members, but did participate in order denying application for rehearing to which no certification was attached, trial court was directed to modify its "order of remand" to allow the commissioner ten days to certify that he had complied with this section at the time of denial of the motion for rehearing. Absent such certification, remand for reconsideration should follow. State ex rel. Jackson County v. Public Service Commission (Mo.), 532 S.W.2d 20.
