Editorial Calls Out HB 6 Scam

As the OMA reported earlier, the owner of the plants, Energy Harbor (formerly FirstEnergy Solutions), recently announced it would be rewarding investors with hundreds of millions dollars of stock buybacks. This was made possible because the company and its allies were able to persuade lawmakers in Columbus to enact House Bill 6 last year. 5/28/2020
