Employees Continue to Engage Lawmakers
July 5, 2019
About 50 nuclear employees and some spouses travelled to Columbus for another round of Ohio Senate hearings on House Bill 6 on Wednesday, June 19.
Prior to the testimony, employees made visits to senate offices starting with those senators who will be crucial to getting House Bill 6 passed.
Davis-Besse managers Jim Vetter and Pat McCloskey spent time with Senator Teresa Fedor from Toledo, personally delivering a letter from plant union members.
The Energy and Public Utilities Committee heard testimony from FENOC employees. Both live in the senator’s district.
Perry’s Lindsay Humble explained HB 6. “It is simply a commonsense investment in Ohio energy, similar to other state and federal support for various kinds of energy production over the years.”
Perry Women in Nuclear President Hali Schultz said, “There is no substitute for the types of positions and salaries you would see at an Ohio nuclear plant.”
Davis-Besse’s Brian Kanney, representing North American Young Generation in Nuclear, discussed the benefits of nuclear power and the face of climate change.
