A measure to repeal the nuclear power plant bailout law is gaining momentum in the Ohio Senate. Ohio Public Radio's 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.
