State & Federal Updates: General Assembly and Congress
For our State's General Assembly, the big story in Columbus is HB 6, the nuclear bailout bill that passed last year. $61 million greased the skids for Rep. Larry Householder to become Speaker of the House (he has been removed from that post), ultimately passing the $1.5 billion bailout.
In Congress, we are looking at a series of Continuing Resolutions (CRs) as we move into the new fiscal year on October 1st. Reports indicate there will be a CR that runs into December when Congress will pass a second CR that puts final appropriations decisions on hold until after the new or the old President is sworn in.
