Texas Senate Passes Bill to Reverse $16 Billon Energy Bill
So, last month during unprecedented Texas snowstorm Uri, I got an amazingly high electric bill of $4,000.
The first thing I didn't do was panic. While I was upset and confused, I thought to myself, this is a mistake and they'll correct it. Well, it wasn't, and they didn't.
Now it seems moves are being made to not only fix what happened to me, but to the countless other Texans who were affected.
My electric retailer at the time, Griddy, explained on their website what happened and how they intended to fight those erroneous charges.
Now it's the State of Texas' turn.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the Texas Senate on Monday used a parliamentary procedure trick to file a bill after Thursday's deadline. Then, Forbes reports, they quickly passed that bill.
