In April, 65 employees and board members representing 21 of Ohio's Electric Cooperatives attended NRECA's 2023 Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C.
Attendees met with nine Ohio Representatives and Sen. Sherrod Brown and Sen. J.D. Vance to discuss issues affecting our industry: electric generation, reliability, supply chain challenges, and federal permitting processes. During legislative meetings, Ohio attendees also highlighted the impacts of the Department of Energy's Transformer Rule and how it would severely impact electric reliability and raise costs.
During the trip, Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio, 5th) gave Ohio attendees a private evening tour of the United States Capitol Building.
