Protest sign

More than a hundred people gathered outside the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) headquarters today, June 15, trying to stop the bailouts of dirty coal plants and the Davis-Besse nuclear plant in Ohio. The rally was tightly controlled by the Ohio Sierra Club, who sent five members inside to deliver letters to the PUCO meeting. The outcome of the decision is not yet known. For more information on the issue, please see: No bailouts for First Energy’s Davis-Besse nuclear reactor by Pat Marida, chair, Ohio Sierra Club Nuclear Issues Committee.
