AEP Subpoenaed by Federal Regulators in HB 6 Inquiry

In the latest development tied to the House Bill 6 scandal, AEP has received a subpoena from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Gongwer News reports that the Columbus-based utility believes its participation in the HB 6 process “was at all times lawful and ethical” and that the company is cooperating fully with the SEC’s subpoena.

Over the past year, it has been discovered that AEP contributed large amounts of money in support of HB 6 through wholly-funded dark money groups. 6/9/2021
