Texas Senator takes action to protect critical infrastructure

Published on Apr 22, 2015 by securefreedom
Texas Senator Bob Hall hears testimony on on Senate Bill 1398 from Kevin Freeman and Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy. SB 1398 sets scientific and security based standards fro electrical grid protection higher than the self regulating industry standards. Under current regulations there is no goal to make the Texas grid withstand and recover from a catastrophic system wide event.

The Texas electrical grid is independent from two other major grids in the U.S. and is therefore able to protect itself independently from threats to and failures of the Eastern and Western grids.

In this clip Tom Glass and Senator Bob Hall explain why Texas’ electrical grid is unique. The Texas grid is independent from the two other major grid systems in the U.S. That means a failure of the other two doesn’t mean that Texas would necessarily be taken down in domino effect. If Texas protects it’s grid, it can do so independently from the federal government and other states.
