PUC plan for electric generation in trouble (rightly so) | Record sales tax receipts – Pratt on Texas 12/2/2022

The news of Texas covered today includes:

Our Lone Star story of the day: With the 88th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature approaching, I’ll begin to provide more looks at issues and argument to which we’ll be treated in the session. Already an issue, Governor Abbott pushed school choice and parental empowerment in his re-election campaign. Most all admit that overcoming the giant bureaucracies, fears, and habits of thinking make school choice very much an uphill battle.

As expected the public school lobby is trying to get more of your money for schools with less and less accountability. Now they want to get paid for students who don’t even attend!

Also, a key Senate committee has put sent up quite a major flare over the Public Utility Commission of Texas’ electric grid power generation plan. Let’s hope that legislators will stop what’s happening and do what is right: Put the burden of cost for unreliable power generation directly upon the investors of unreliable power as opposed to putting such on rate payers.
