Obviously there is concern for those people who have suffered, but also there is a huge economic problem associated with grid failures.

The risk for Texas is that its appeal to businesses like Tesla and Amazon and Oracle and HP depends on a bunch of factors. A corporate executive might expect, for example, reliable electrical power. Trying to run a factory when lights go off in February for a week and then in June for another week is not all that helpful. If that continues to be a problem, there will be fallout.
