Ohio Senate votes to repeal nuclear plant subsidies
After months of unsuccessful efforts by Ohio lawmakers to contend with the fallout from H.B. 6—the now-infamous nuclear subsidies bill signed into law in 2019—the state’s senate on March 3 passed a measure, S.B. 44, to repeal those subsidies. The vote was 32–0.
For those who may need reminding, federal prosecutors on July 21, 2020, arrested Larry Householder, then speaker of the Ohio House, and four lobbyists and political consultants for their involvement in an alleged $61 million corruption and racketeering scheme aimed at guaranteeing passage of H.B. 6, whose subsidies had kept Ohio’s Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear power plants from premature closure.
H.B. 6 established a seven-year program to charge the state’s electricity consumers fees to support payments of about $150 million annually to the plants’ operator, Energy Harbor Corporation, then known as FirstEnergy Solutions (FES). FES had announced in March 2018 that it would be forced to close Davis-Besse and Perry without some form of support from the state. (The payments to Energy Harbor were blocked last December by an Ohio Supreme Court injunction, which complemented an earlier lower court ruling.)

The Japanese Government designated JAEA as the Domestic Agency of Japan (JADA) for the ITER Project just after the entry into force of the ITER Agreement on 24th Oct. 2007. In-kind procurements allotted to JADA amount to about 16% of the total according to the "Common Understandings on Procurement Allocation". The first procurement arrangement for 25% of the TF superconductors was concluded in November 2007 between the ITER Organization (IO) and the JADA After the bidding, venders for fabricating 15% of the TF conductors were selected in March 2008. The Quality Assurance Program of JADA, that is indispensable for implementing procurement, was approved by IO, and the Project Management of JADA subsequently got underway. Preparation for the procurement continues for the instruments and equipment that JA has the responsibility to procure. JADA also has performed tasks requested by IO on the PF conductor and the accelerator of the neutral beam injector system, etc.
