COLUMBUS — "The fight to hold a statewide referendum overturning House Bill 6, Ohio’s new law gutting green-energy standards and subsidizing nuclear and coal power plants, is officially over.
On Tuesday, Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts, the group behind the effort to hold the referendum, filed a motion with the 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals to drop its appeal seeking to gain more time to gather enough signatures to place the measure on the 2020 ballot.
'We couldn’t see a path forward,' said Gene Pierce, a spokesman for Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts, on Wednesday morning. 'I don’t know what anybody else wants to do, but we’re done.'"
