Fedor Calls for Passage of Ohio Anti-Corruption Act
January 7, 2022
Today, state Senator Teresa Fedor (D-Toledo) released the following statement after the Toledo Blade’s Editorial Board wrote that the staff of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) recommended blocking the sworn deposition of an outside auditor, Oxford Advisors, which the Office of Consumers’ Counsel (OCC) requested to continue its investigation into First Energy and the House Bill 6 scandal that continues to rip off Ohio ratepayers. 

“I am disappointed to see that nothing has changed at the PUCO since it changed leadership. Chair Judith French testified during the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee that she ‘cares about consumers’ and ‘would do the right thing.’ However, actions speak much louder than words, and the actions being taken do not match the bill of goods we were sold. I am calling on Governor DeWine to fire all members of the PUCO. I have no confidence in PUCO to do the right thing for consumers. That is why it is so important for the legislature to move my bill, the Ohio Anti-Corruption Act. Passing this legislation would prohibit secret money, hidden influence and the thwarting of the people’s right to know who is behind deceptive campaigning and policies that hurt working families. Government should work for the people, and not just those with deep pockets.”
