How to Protect the Texas Electrical Grid
Presented by Sen. Bob Hall
We are dependent on energy: the gasoline we pump, the refrigeration of our food, the health saving equipment used by our doctors, and our very safety. Our lives would come to a stand still without it.
Sen. Hall will inform us about proposed bills in the upcoming legislative session which will enable us to protect Texas’ grid from cyber attacks, Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), and solar flares. By hardening our electrical grid, we will be able to survive and thrive in an emergency.
About our speaker:
Texas Senator Bob Hall is a Republican member of the Texas State Senate and part of the Tea Party movement. He succeeded fellow Republican Bob Deuell, whom Hall defeated in the Republican Party runoff election held on May 27, 2014.
Senator Bob Hall, father of three boys and husband to Kay Hall, taught his family the importance of faith, family and hard work. Senator Hall graduated from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina with a degree in Electrical Engineering and received a Regular Commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Air Force. While a cadet at the Citadel he received numerous awards for leadership. He was the only Air Force Cadet selected to be a Battalion Commander and was awarded the coveted Wade Hampton saber as the graduating cadet who had contributed the most to the Citadel during the four years he was a cadet, and was listed in “Who’s Who In American Colleges” his Senior year. Upon graduation, Bob began his active duty as a Systems Engineer working to develop the Minuteman Missile System during the Cold War at Norton AFB in California, where he achieved the rank of Captain.
After the Air Force he worked in the Aerospace industry as a systems engineer and business development manager. In 1982 he left the corporate world and began working as an independent proposal consultant to aerospace and defense corporations. Then in 1984 he formed his own company, Professional Proposal Management, Inc., which remains a family owned small business today.
