Texas Legislature 2021

Texas lawmakers want to prevent another power crisis. But the legislation doesn't go far enough to do that, critics say.

Some say lawmakers should go further to ensure power plants can withstand increased weather due to climate change. And they worry that much of the legislation advancing will be up to the Public Utility Commission to enforce.

The City of San Marcos provided three San Marcos C.I.S.D. school buses, parked at the San Marcos Activity Center, as warming centers for residents needing shelter from the cold on Feb 17, 2021.
