FBI agents arrested Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder on July 21, 2020, in connection with an alleged bribery scheme related to Householder’s championing of Ohio’s House Bill 6 (“HB6”), a state-funded bailout of nuclear plants which would also subsidize coal plants in Ohio and Indiana along with eliminating mandates on renewable energy. The Columbus Dispatch reported on July 25, 2020, that AEP made large financial contributions to politicians and organizations supporting HB6’s passage.
