The Bill That Died Before The Power Did
Play • 27 min

Texas lawmakers are meeting on Thursday in Austin – pledging to get to the bottom of the massive statewide power outages last week. But a former state lawmaker tells the Jasons that Texas missed an opportunity six years ago to start planning for something like this. Eric Johnson, the current Mayor of Dallas, was a state representative in 2015 and introduced a bill that might have helped prevent the near-failure of the Texas electric grid last week. Johnson explained what his bill would have done and how it was killed in the final moments before it was to have been passed.

 

We’d like to know what you think about Y’all-itics! So, please take the survey the Jasons mentioned: Cheers! 

 

As promised, here’s how to find out who represents you. https://wrm.capitol.texas.gov/home
