COLUMBUS—State Rep. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) today announced support of Democratic legislation, sponsored by Reps. Michael J. Skindell (D-Lakewood) and Michael O’Brien (D-Warren), that would repeal House Bill (HB) 6. This bill follows news that Republican Speaker of the House Larry Householder (R-Glenford) allegedly accepted tens of millions of dollars in bribes to pass HB 6 and to prevent a referendum on the law from coming before Ohio voters.
“Ohioans deserved better than HB 6– a corporate bailout on the backs of working people that stripped our state of job opportunities and progress in renewable energy,” said Rep. Lepore-Hagan. “This alleged HB 6 scheme robbed the people in Mahoning Valley of their hard earned money, and they should get back every dime of it. I trust them, not corporate greed.”
