Ohio lawmakers still don’t know what to do about corruptly instituted nuclear bailout law

Still no plan on future of nuclear bailout law        ‘……..Toledo Blade 
COLUMBUS 6 Jan 21, — Still on the plate of lawmakers as they start a new two-year session is the unfinished business of what to do with the $1 billion bailout of two nuclear power plants at the heart of a $61 million bribery scandal.

“We have a new General Assembly, so we have 20 new members,” House Speaker Bob Cupp (R., Lima) said Monday. “We will continue to work to find a solution that the House, the Senate, and the governor can all agree on…It is still a high priority on our agenda to find a solution.”

New Senate President Matt Huffman (R., Lima) said he and the speaker have been talking about how to proceed.
