COLUMBUS, Ohio—FirstEnergy Corp. has agreed to regularly open its books to the public about its political spending, under an agreement the scandal-ridden utility has reached with a New York State public pension fund.
Under the deal with the New York State Common Retirement Fund, FirstEnergy has agreed to post comprehensive reports on its website twice per year through May 2024 detailing all its spending on any candidates, political parties, and ballot measures in any state. The agreement was released Monday by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli, the pension’s trustee.
