One year ago today, FBI agents arrested five men in the HB6 scandal

It has been one year since Ohioans first learned of the $61 million bribery scandal surrounding House Bill 6. We are still working to clear the cloud of corruption and disgrace that hangs over our state government.

The costly coal subsidies and provisions gutting our clean energy standards implemented by House Bill 6 remain in effect today, costing our ratepayers millions every day and dragging down our economic growth.

Over the past year, Ohio lawmakers have had the perfect opportunity to develop a real energy policy for our state. Instead, they have chosen to pass legislation designed to erode property owner rights, abandon an all-of-the-above energy strategy, and pit neighbor against neighbor.

Ohio deserves a comprehensive energy policy built around equitable solutions that are good for our economy, our communities, and our health. We call on the Ohio General Assembly to stand up to big utilities and take back our energy future.
