“’It’s our job as lawmakers to cut through the politics and ugly, false narratives that seem to be surrounding this legislation,’ said Emilia Sykes, D-Akron, leader of the House Democratic caucus, in a statement issued late Monday through the Ohio House Minority Caucus Blog.

‘Our priority with statewide energy policy remains focused on protecting consumers, protecting public health and creating an environment where good jobs grow.

‘Supporting nuclear energy is part of an all-of the-above strategy that keeps energy reliable and secure for Ohioans,’ added Sykes. ‘But taxpayers deserve an honest conversation about how this legislation will impact them directly, and we hope to add to that.’”
