Nuclear Matters Statement on Ohio H.B. 6 Passage · Jul 23, 2019 3:43 PM

Nuclear Matters applauds the Ohio Legislature and Governor Mike DeWine for passing and signing House Bill 6 into law, securing the state’s clean energy future. HB 6 ensures nuclear energy – the Buckeye state’s largest, most reliable source of carbon-free energy – will remain a vital part of Ohio’s energy mix, providing economic and environmental benefits for years to come.

This important legislation saves 4,300 jobs directly and indirectly associated with Ohio’s nuclear plants, which account for 90% of the state’s zero carbon emissions generation. We look forward to Ohio’s clean energy future and commend Governor DeWine and the Ohio Legislature for enacting legislation that saves jobs, decreases air pollution and keeps electricity prices low.
