Urgency of HB 6 Repeal Fades

This week, the House Select Committee on Energy Policy and Oversight conducted its fourth hearing on a pair of House Bill 6 repeal bills (HB 738 and HB 746). Afterward, Chairman Jim Hoops (R-Napoleon) told Statehouse news media that the committee’s exact schedule remains undetermined. He added that “whether the two nuclear plants need the financial support remains a key question.”

Meanwhile, only 90 days remain until Jan. 1, when Ohioans start funding HB 6’s nuclear subsidies via their electric bills. 10/1/2020
