Ohio Policymakers Return AEP Political Contributions

Records show Ohio lawmakers and Gov. Mike DeWine have recently returned around $50,000 to American Electric Power’s (AEP) political action committee, according to a report by Ohio Capital Journal. AEP is a key beneficiary of House Bill 6’s $700 million ratepayer-funded subsidy for two OVEC coal plants.

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) is currently seeking an independent audit of the OVEC plants. 5/12/2021
