In the state Senate, a bill introduced by Republicans John Eklund of Geauga County and Frank LaRose of Summit County, would create "zero-emissions credits" for FirstEnergy's nuclear plants. Proponents have argued the credits reward FirstEnergy for producing power that doesn't create any greenhouse gases. This is a good thing, but keep in mind that the Ohio House is simultaneously trying to roll back Gov. John Kasich's green-energy mandates that would set standards for Ohio power producers to get increasingly more energy each year from green
