This Thursday, February 25, the Texas House of Representatives will hold a public hearing in Austin to address ERCOT’s lack of preparedness for this winter storm, but Gov. Abbott doesn’t want to testify about his administration’s failures that led to power outages and impacted water supplies across the state. To make matters worse, only invited guests will be allowed to speak.
TOP and our allies want to make sure these legislators know how the freezing temperatures, power outages, and water shortages have impacted you and your family. So we’re inviting you to share your written and video testimony as we demand answers for Texans.
Your powerful stories will be shared publicly with Gov. Abbott, ERCOT, and the hearing officials on the day of the hearing so that your voice can be heard. #AbbottBlackout
