(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost issued the following statement in regards to today’s ruling in litigation related to House Bill 6:
“Monday’s ruling proves that the powerful can be held accountable and that corruption will be rooted out. Everybody who pays an electric bill whether for their own home or a job-sustaining manufacturer, is the winner today. Your pocket will not be picked.”
Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost last month announced the filing of litigation to block the payment of nuclear bailout money stemming from House Bill 6.
“Ohio laws should not be built on the basis of fraud, deceit and intimidation,” Yost said. “Given the corruption surrounding House Bill 6, it is proper to block these ill-gotten gains from filling the coffers of those under criminal indictment.”
