Ohio Governor John Kasich says he can't see supporting a proposed bailout of Akron-based FirstEnergy's two nuclear plants that's now stalled in the state Legislature.

Kasich says it's up to FirstEnergy to figure out how to keep its nuclear plants operating without a bailout. The governor made his comments on Monday while touring the Oregon Clean Energy Center, touting its ability to power more homes than coal or nuclear power plants.
