Video: HB6 Referendum Fight Goes To Court
"This week brought a close to one chapter for Ohio's nuclear power plant bailout law, House Bill 6. But another could be starting.
The law would create 150 million dollars in annual subsides for nuclear plants starting in 2021 and running for 10 years. It would generate hundreds of millions of dollars for two coal plants – one in Indiana. And it would roll back renewable energy requirements on utilities and eliminated the mandate for power companies to reduce its energy use.
The group fighting against the bailout and these other measures mounted a last minute push for signatures and as Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, their fight ultimately landed in federal court."
