The Ohio House finished the bulk of its lame duck session work with the Republican speaker saying the chamber will not take any action on the nuclear power plant bailout law linke to the largest bribery scandal in Ohio politics.
The Ohio Supreme Court has issued an order stopping utilities from collecting a monthly fee to subsidize two nuclear power plants, part of the state's scandal-scared nuclear plant bailout law approved in 2019.
Legislation filed Tuesday would delay the collection of nuclear subsidies under the law at the center of a $60 million federal bribery probe as Ohio Republican lawmakers struggled to find common ground on a repeal effort.
A consumer advocacy group is filing a complaint with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, calling on the state regulators to allow for a possible refund on electric bills. The motion has to do with a new charge customers pay to subsidize coal plans through House Bill 6.
