A giant, inflatable pig is flanked by protesters Tuesday at a rally in Medina Public Square against House Bill 6, legislation aimed at Ohio’s energy rules.
Ohio Citizen Action planned the rally, with similar ones held Monday in Cincinnati and Bowling Green, in anticipation of Ohio Senate discussions on the proposed legislation.
With signs like “Stop Corporate Greed,” “Don’t tax my family to make your paycheck” and “You always want more,” protesters spoke in opposition of the proposed bill.
According to its website, Ohio Citizen Action considers House Bill 6 a bailout for the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear plants, which are owned by a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Solutions.
