Legislation to repeal HB6 has been introduced, but instead of moving forward on a vote to repeal HB6, the Ohio Senate cancelled it’s August session, and the house doesn’t plan to meet until mid-September.
It’s been a month since former House Speaker Larry Householder was arrested for a $60 million dollar bribery and racketeering scheme to pass HB6, which gutted Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards and replaced them with a $1.3 billion dollar nuclear and coal bailout paid for by Ohio electric customers. Legislation to repeal HB6 has been introduced, but instead of moving forward to repeal this corrupt legislation the Ohio Senate cancelled it’s August session, and the house doesn’t plan to meet again until at least mid-September.
This is inexcusable. How can we trust our state legislators if they won’t even take a vote on legislation to repeal HB6? A bill which likely would not have passed if it weren’t for “the largest bribery, money-laundering scheme ever perpetrated against the people in the state of Ohio.” according to the US Attorney General in charge of the case.
