Abbott: ERCOT Reform Emergency Item

Texas Governor Greg Abbott wants there to be reform on how the state’s electric grid is run.

He says the Texas Legislature needs to investigate the Electric Reliability Council of Texas and its response to the freezing temperatures and severe winter weather.

He’s hoping any review will come up with longterm solutions to the problem.

Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan has already called for two House committees to interview ERCOT officials on the grid.

Millions are without power and around ten people have been reported dead after a winter storm hit the state and knocked out power.
