Don't be Fooled - HB 6 IS a Bailout for First Energy.

The Ohio House of Representatives is set to vote on House Bill 6, the so-called “Ohio Clean Air Program.” Don’t be fooled by corporate interests funding the dark money campaign to trick Ohioans into believing that House Bill 6 is about supporting clean air or supporting Ohio jobs in the renewable energy industry. Here is the truth about HB 6: 

  • HB 6 creates a new tax paid by all Ohio utility customers to fund the Ohio Clean Air Program – a $190 million tax to bailout out First Energy’s nuclear plants in northern Ohio and coal-burning plants, including one in Indiana!
  • HB 6 does not provide any state support for clean sources such as wind or solar – it is strictly a bailout for nuclear and coal!
  • HB 6 is riddled with hidden fees and costs that consumers will be forced to pay down the road – another blank check for corporate utility interests!

 

AARP is firmly opposed to HB 6 for all Ohioans, but especially for those age 50-plus who are living on fixed incomes.

We urge you to contact your state representative today and tell them to stand up for Ohio utility customers and VOTE NO on House Bill 6.

Vote NO on Ohio House Bill 6

Dear [Decision Maker],

House Bill 6 would saddle all Ohioans with a new, unfair and unnecessary annual $190 million nuclear bailout tax.

Ohioans are not fooled by the corporate interest dark money campaign to trick us into believeing that HB 6 is about supporting clean air or supporting Ohio jobs in the renewable energy industry.



Utility customers in Ohio expect to pay fair and reasonable prices for electricity- and not a dollar more. Please vote no on House Bill 6.

Sincerely
