In the House, the State Affairs Committee and the Business and Commerce Committee will hear invited testimony on "the factors that led to statewide electrical blackouts during the recent unprecedented weather event; the response by industry, suppliers; and grid operators and changes necessary to avoid future power interruptions."
In the Senate, meanwhile, the Finance Committee and the Business and Commerce Committee will meet to "examine extreme weather condition preparedness and circumstances that led to the power outages as directed by Electric Reliability Council of Texas."
