Lawmakers Working To Repeal Nuclear Plant Bailout Bill
State lawmakers are drafting legislation to repeal the energy laws created through House Bill 6 that bailed out two nuclear power plants.
The bill is at the center of a federal racketeering investigation. Ohio Public Radio's Andy Chow reports.
House Speaker Larry Householder is accused of funneling money from a company widely thought to be FirstEnergy for personal and political benefit in return for passing the bailout.
A bipartisan group lawmakers, including Democratic Representative Michael O'Brien, are working on a repeal.
"I think that the entire process was obscene and I think that the entire process needs to be eliminated."
The increased charges to electric bills to fund the nuclear subsidies are set to begin next year.
Governor Mike DeWine says he does not support a repeal.
