Sign up to join the fight and demand Ohio taxpayers aren’t forced to foot the bills for monopoly utilities’ political spending.
Ohio’s monopoly utilities use hidden fees to charge us for political contributions and lobbying expenses. This is the kind of spending that FirstEnergy used to buy its way into a corrupt $1.3 billion taxpayer-funded bailout.
We can stop ugly bailouts like this by barring monopoly utilities from forcing us, the customers, to pay their political and lobbying expenses.
They abuse the system, we pay the bills. It has to stop.
