Ohio could become the newest state to hand out a billion dollar financial rescue for its nuclear power plants.
Lawmakers in the Ohio House are preparing to vote on a plan that would give $150 million a year to stop the financially unstable nuclear plants from closing prematurely. Ohio Governor, Mike DeWine has reported that he will sign the legislation it into law, if approved by the House.
Critics have said that the state’s residents and businesses should not be the ones stuck paying a new fee that would be added onto electricity bills and benefit the nuclear plants’ owner. Supporters contend the nuclear plants account for nearly all of Ohio’s clean energy and employs over 1,400 workers, and generates millions in taxes.
