Leaders of Texas’ executive and legislative branches met on Saturday to protect Texans from an expected spike in their energy bills. The meeting took place via a conference call attended by the governor, lieutenant governor, speaker of the house, and key legislative committee chairs.
“We have a responsibility to protect Texans from spikes in their energy bills that are a result of the severe winter weather and power outages,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a written statement provided to Breitbart News. “Today’s meeting was productive, and I applaud Republican and Democrat members of the Legislature for putting aside partisan politics to work together on this challenge.
Texans shouldn’t have to face a spike in their energy costs.
To quickly address this issue I held an emergency meeting today with legislative leaders to begin crafting solutions.
