Millions were spent to overturn Ohio's nuclear bailout law and keep it. We'll never know who paid.

COLUMBUS - "Friday marked the first time anyone involved in the nasty, expensive fight over Ohio's energy grid was required to disclose any details about their donors or how that money was spent.

That disclosure comes long after the debate over House Bill 6 ended.

Starting Jan. 1, 2021, Ohioans will have a new fee on their electric bills to pay for nuclear energy, coal plants and some solar projects. Meanwhile, subsidies for renewable energy and energy efficiency will fade. 

In the end, many of the groups involved in the clash will never report specifics about who donated money to their efforts. That's because state and federal laws do not require disclosure."
