Excerpts from the article:

“We need to weatherize and winterize the entire natural gas supply chain,” Virginia Palacios, the executive director of Commission Shift, told KWTX.

“The area where this legislation is falling short is on the gas production side,” she said.

She also argued that the bill lacks an effective enforcement mechanism.

“The penalties [for not weatherizing facilities] are set so low that it would be cheaper for a company to just pay the penalties than to actually winterize their system,” she said.
