Gov. Greg Abott’s administration and Mexico have agreed to establish an energy task force to promote economic growth in Texas and Mexico.
Gov. Greg Abbott’s announcement on Tuesday that his administration and Mexico, where he spent the weekend, would create an energy task force to foster “economic growth on both sides of the border by finding new and innovative energy solutions” could be a promising development beyond the usually contentious issues of the water treaty and Texas’ travel advisory warning. The task force has three goals, according to the governor’s office. First, it will aim to continue to strengthen and modernize our interconnected electric and natural gas infrastructure. The second goal is to develop resources to find additional energy solutions, and finally, to promote investments in the energy value productive chain.
