Please join Ohio Citizen Action for the next installment in a series of Conversations with Rachael Belz, OCA Executive Director with special guest Neil Waggoner, Sr. Campaign Representative for the Sierra Club.
Our ongoing fight for renewable energy and government accountability in the face of Ohio's HB 6 scandal has reached a new phase. That law, at the center of Ohio's largest racketeering and bribery scheme ever, forced taxpayers to bail out FirstEnergy’s nuclear plants and two Eisenhower-era Ohio Valley Electric Corporation (OVEC) coal plants (one of which is in Indiana!). The nuclear bailout portion of HB 6 was just repealed, but the coal bailouts continue to roll in -- and Ohio's ratepayers and environment continue to foot the large bill. Join Rachael and Neil to talk about why it’s time to retire these dirty coal plants and protect the health of every Ohioan.
