Gov. Greg Abbott, in his third inaugural address Tuesday, stressed that the legislature’s session will focus on historic budget surpluses, “parental rights” in schools and public safety.

Notably, he focused on infrastructure, including the power grid, after a 2021 winter storm and power outage left millions of Texans in the dark and hundreds died. Abbott touted the improvements to the network, which he successfully promoted in the following months, but acknowledged that there was still a lot of work to be done.

In doing so, he joined Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in calling the network a top priority for the session. Abbott, who ran for re-election last year, ignored criticisms of unresolved network problems and declared them fixed.

“We all know there will be increased demand for the network as Texas continues to grow,” Abbott said. “So, in this session, we will build the network that powers our state—not for the next four years, but for the next 40 years.”
