OMA’s Augsburger: Time to Repeal HB 6 Coal Subsidies

In a July 24 editorial published by The Columbus Dispatch, OMA President Ryan Augsburger provides the manufacturing perspective on the House Bill 6 scandal and its impact on the Buckeye State.

Augsburger writes that while state lawmakers have repealed key provisions of the law, “there is at least one more critical provision of HB 6 that must be repealed” to keep Ohio’s electricity costs and services competitive. The OMA is urging lawmakers to pass the bipartisan Senate Bill 117 to end HB 6’s subsidies for two uneconomical coal-fired plants, including one in Indiana. 7/26/2021
