Presidential debate turns into a series of personal attacks
President Trump refused to let Democratic nominee Joe Biden get a word in during the first presidential debate, according to the New York Times.
The president’s aggressive stance was an obvious ploy to improve his poll numbers, which have been trailing since April. While Biden attempted to ignore Trump’s interjections, he also launched his own series of personal attacks.
Throughout the debate, moderator Chris Wallace struggled to keep the candidates on topic.
The presidential debate kicks off the final month before voters head to the polls.
Texas’ pandemic electricity relief program ends
The electricity relief program, which began for Texans in spring, is coming to a close tomorrow, according to Fox.
The program has helped 600,000 Texas residents who were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to pay their electricity bill.
This program did not serve as a payment forgiveness plan. Rather, it was intended as payment deferment to buy customers time during the hot summer months.
Electricity retailers are required to work with people who want to be enrolled in a payment plan moving forward. Every company must not ask for more than 50% of the outstanding payment.
Consumers must take steps and contact their provider to be enrolled in a payment plan.
