Energy Harbor, FirstEnergy officials should testify before Ohio lawmakers about nuclear plants' profitability, AG Dave Yost says

COLUMBUS — "Attorney General Dave Yost is urging state lawmakers to have Energy Harbor and FirstEnergy Corp. representatives testify before legislative committees and disclose whether two nuclear power plants set to receive a $1.3 billion ratepayer bailout actually need the money.

In a letter to state lawmakers serving on Ohio House and Senate committees studying what, if anything, to do about the scandal-ridden bailout law, House Bill 6, Yost stated the corporations 'owe it to the legislature and the public to appear before the committees and provide a detailed financial accounting of their operations.'

...Yost’s letter comes as Energy Harbor is again refusing to publicly disclose financial data showing whether its Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear plants along Lake Erie are profitable or not."
