Ohio legislature considers forcing customers to bailout coal plants

COLUMBUS — “Did you hear that you could soon be paying more for your electric bills?

But the price of electricity isn’t getting more expensive, so what gives?

If some lawmakers in Columbus get their way, your hard-earned money will start paying for bailouts of old power plants in Indiana and Pennsylvania.

Say what?

That’s right.

Legislators at the Statehouse want to raise your utility rates to bailout out failing power plants that aren’t even in Ohio.

Tell your legislator: Reject these ridiculous bills that bail out power plants in other states with your hard-earned money.
