Paxton Warns CVS, Walgreens on Illegalities of Sending Abortion Pills Through the Mail
Attorney General Paxton has joined two Missouri-led multistate letters being sent to CVS and Walgreens concerning their decision to seek approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on using the mail to sell abortion pills. CVS and Walgreens recently announced their willingness to aid the Biden Administration’s radical abortion agenda by selling abortion pills via mail. The Biden Administration has attempted to twist statutes to allow the delivery, but the companies’ decision to send through the mail clashes with federal and many state laws that actually bans the distribution of abortion pill through the mail. A letter to CVS stated that “federal expressly prohibits using the mail to send or receive and drug that will be used or applied for producing production. “Although many people are unfamiliar with this statute because it has not been amended in a few decades, to text could not be clear… In December, the Biden Administration’s Office of Legal Counsel encouraged the U.S. Postal Service to disregard this plain text but the text, not the Biden Administration’s view, is what governs.” The letter also says that in addition to being illegal to send through the mail, abortion drugs are dangerous and they can be…

No Deaths Reported After Twister Prompts ‘Tornado Emergency’ in Southeast Texas
A powerful storm system took aim at the Gulf Coast on Tuesday, spawning a tornado that downed utility poles and power lines, overturned vehicles and ripped roofs off homes in communities east of Houston. There were no immediate reports of serious injuries. The National Weather Service had issued a tornado emergency for that area, warning that a “large, extremely dangerous and potentially deadly tornado” was on the ground Tuesday afternoon and was headed toward Baytown, about 25 miles east of Houston. The warning expired as the system moved to the east. The storm damaged commercial buildings, homes and power lines in nearby Pasadena, a city southeast of Houston. Utility poles and power lines were downed, and several vehicles, including a trailer, were damaged or flipped over in a parking lot. Footage from Houston TV stations showed several businesses suffered major damage, including the city’s animal shelter. Nearby, fences were laid over and shingles and sections of roofs were torn from homes, but there were no immediate reports of injuries. In Baytown, there were downed power lines and damage to homes and businesses, but no reports of serious injuries, said Baytown spokesperson Jason Calder. Shell Chemicals’ site in nearby Deer Park…

Could the Power Grid Withstand Another Severe Winter Storm?
In the aftermath of the February 2021 winter storm that knocked out power to two-thirds of the state and killed more than 200 Texans, lawmakers and regulators vowed that the grid would not fail like that again. So, have they made good on their promise? “It depends on who you talk to, right? Gov. (Greg) Abbott said when the legislation was signed to improve grid reliability, that he felt everything that needed to be done has been done,” said senior investigative reporter Scott Friedman of KRLD’s media partner NBC 5. “However, there is still some skepticism among the experts who we talked to about whether we would have few problems or no problems if we saw a storm of the magnitude of what we had in 2021.” Following that storm, regulatory agencies like ERCOT and the Texas Public Utility Commission instituted new guidelines, including winterization standards, for power plants. Energy consultant and former advisor to the chair of the PUC Alison Silverstein said there are still elements of the grid that could be vulnerable to temperatures like the ones Texas experienced in the days before Christmas, a cold snap that was part of the much larger Winter Storm Elliott. “We don’t…
