HB 6 – the nuclear and coal bailout bill — cost consumers $1.5 billion, destroyed Ohio jobs, and stripped away clean energy programs that would have protected Ohioans health during this pandemic.
Despite widespread opposition from the Ohioans, bankrupt corporation FirstEnergy and now former Ohio Speaker Larry Householder worked together to pass this bill and take billions of dollars out of the pockets of Ohio consumers. Worse yet, the FBI just arrested Larry Householder and his associates in a $60 million bribery scandal connected to HB6.
Corruption made HB6 possible. Ohio leaders must do the right thing and repeal HB6 now.
