COLUMBUS—State Rep. Michael Sheehy (D-Oregon) today announced support of Democratic legislation, sponsored by Reps. Michael J. Skindell (D-Lakewood) and Michael O’Brien (D-Warren), that would repeal House Bill (HB) 6. This bill follows news that Republican Speaker of the House Larry Householder (R-Glenford) allegedly accepted tens of millions of dollars in bribes to pass HB 6 and to prevent a referendum on the law from coming before Ohio voters.
“I support nuclear energy as one of the keys to achieving a diverse and sustainable energy portfolio in Ohio. However, these goals cannot be achieved when tens of millions of dollars are used to subvert the will of Ohioans. It must be done with integrity and honesty, which all Ohioans demand and deserve. House Bill 6 needs to be repealed,” said Rep. Sheehy.
