Address extreme heat in Texas prisons

It's been nearly a year, and I have not seen Texas Governor, Greg Abbott make any meaningful steps towards addressing extreme heat in Texas Prisons.
It is quite shocking to learn that nearly all prisons in Texas do not have air conditioning. This can be extremely dangerous during heat waves (like the one Texas is facing right now), where high temperatures have led to fatalities.
It seems as if Governor Abbott doesn't care about extreme heat since he even implemented a law that takes away water breaks for construction workers...
Governor Abbott, please implement legislation that takes care of people during this heatwave.

    Poisoners are too human beings entitled to basic human rights. Providing air conditioners in there cells should be a priority

      It's unfortunate that heat waves hit everyone in or out of prison,but it's good to introduce atleast air conditioners to help the inmates cope with heat waves better.

        @rosebellendiritu Yes, and I think it would be beneficial to even use heat pumps instead of air conditioners, which are more climate-friendly.
