FirstEnergy Case Update

Ohio’s top lawyer asks the court to block FirstEnergy from collecting special fees from customers…that were set up under a now-tainted nuclear bailout bill…to allow the company to maintain record-high profits…even if electricity sales dip. Attorney General, Dave Yost filed the request. The bill is at the center of a $60 million federal bribery probe that alleges Larry Householder, the state House speaker at the time, used the money to politically position and succeed at passing the bailout bill. Householder and four others charged have pled not guilty. Yost says customers…statewide…should not have to pay for the $102 million dollars FirstEnergy is set to collect in 2021.
