AUSTIN — Following a record setting cold snap that left millions without power, one group smells money in the bank: Capitol Lobbyists.

“Ka-Ching,” said Bill Miller of HillCo group. “Everybody’s getting paid!!!”

“Renewables. Oil and Gas. Public power. Private power. Everything’s gonna be on the table and EVERYBODY’S going to need representation. That means big lobby bucks!!!”

Governor Abbott vowed to work with the lobbyist community to make any bills passed by the legislature “as complicated and confusing as possible” to further increase lobby fees.
