Ohio House seeking to end nuclear energy bailout bill due to corruption and fraud – The Vindicator

WARREN — State Reps. Michael J. O’Brien and Michael Skindell will try to push the Ohio House to vote Tuesday to repeal the controversial House Bill 6 that bailed out two failed nuclear power plants and is at the heart of a federal political corruption case.

Former House Speaker Larry Householder, R-Glenford, and four associates — including former Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges — were arrested on federal racketeering charges in a $60 million bribery case related to the taxpayer-funded bailout of two nuclear power plants near Cleveland and Toledo through HB 6.
