Nuclear Plant Bailout Repeal Gaining Traction In Ohio Senate
A measure to repeal the nuclear power plant bailout is gaining momentum in the Ohio Senate. Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports.
The Republican-backed bill would end the proposed increase to monthly electric bills meant to subsidize two nuclear power plants.
It passed committee and is on its way to a possible full Senate vote
But opponents of HB6 say the proposal doesn’t go far enough.
Democrats want a full repeal of HB6 which not only ends the nuclear bailout but revives green energy standards.
However, a measure doing away with just the nuclear subsidies seems to have the most traction.
