Last month, during the final days of legislative action on House Bill 6 - the nuclear bailout bill - 70 Ohio lawmakers from the House and Senate voted to approve the power plant subsidy package. However, another 50 lawmakers stood firm and voted against the bill. The votes were not along partisan lines and lawmakers from both parties were pressured heavily by their leadership, as well as multiple stakeholders.
This was a difficult vote, so hearing directly from constituents will mean a great deal to every lawmaker. If your state representative or senator voted 'no' on HB 6, take a moment to send him/her a note of thanks. You can find your state lawmakers here. 8/5/2019
