NO SHUT-OFFS - The Texas Public Utility Commission is barring providers from shutting off power and water services to residents who have lost jobs or income because of the coronavirus outbreak. Commissioner Arthur  D'Andrea said why the measure is critical.

"People have been ordered not to work by the government so I think it is the government's responsibility to make sure they at least have lights and water while they're sitting home under government order."
