Statehouse Rally to Repeal Coal Subsidies

Dec. 9  12:00-1:00 pm

Join Ohio Citizen Action on 12/9 for a Statehouse Rally to Repeal Ohio's Coal Subsidies.

Ohio’s 2019 energy bill HB 6, whose core was the First Energy subsidies that are the basis of the federal $61 million dollar bribery case, also included subsidies for OVEC’s two aging, inefficient, and polluting coal-fired plants, costing Ohio ratepayers $233,000 a day. Ohio Citizen Action invites you to join them at the High Street side of the Statehouse from noon to 1 pm to send a message to state legislators to end the OVEC coal plant bailouts from HB6! Advocates will line the street holding signs and banners in support of the bailout repeal bills SB 117 and HB 351. Elves will deliver stockings filled with coal to Ohio legislators. Holiday-themed clothing and signs encouraged! Extra signs will be available for those who need them.

Sign up here.
