Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Scott Braddock, editor of QuorumReport.com, joined the program to talk about the news in Texas, including the power grid disaster experienced by the state during the historic winter storm Uri and what is being done to prevent a repeat of that situation in the future, as well as rumors of the state mask mandate being lifted soon by Governor Greg Abbott.

Braddock and Hasty discussed the long and heated debates that are taking place in the Texas legislature over the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), and local electric providers, and the work to keep power customers' bill manageable.

Also discussed was the straw poll at CPAC concerning the GOP nomination for the White House which included Senator Ted Cruz and Governor Abbott.

While describing the tone of the power catastrophe hearings in Austin, Braddock said,

Fifteen hours worth of hearings...They were there at 9 A.M., before the House and Senate, on Thursday into Friday...Not a lot of great answers Chad. You had Republicans and Democrats alike who were very angry at the Electric Reliability Council of Texas and the Public Utilities Commission as well.
