SB 6 has passed and was signed in to law this week. It creates a semi-permanent rate hike (fee) on our electric bills to off-set unspecified costs related to maintaining 4 antiquated power plants ( 2 nuclear and 2 coal) owned by First Energy. The bill also does away with the state's energy conservation standards. A coalition of environmental groups may seek to overturn the new law by means of a statewide referendum.
Full audio from a press conference held at the statehouse on the day of the vote.

Also; local community organizer Morgan Harper is challenging Democratic incumbent Joyce Beatty for the nomination to run for Ohio's 3rd congressional district - a so-called "safe" Democratic district created when the Republican Party re-drew a number of congressional districts to assure a Republican majority in the Ohio congressional delegation.

She supports the Green New Deal, free college tuition, un iversal health care, and a comprehensive approach to resolving the nation's affordable housing crisis. A full interview with Morgan Harper.
