What the heck is the Railroad Commission?!

  • The Texas Railroad Commission oversees the Texas oil and gas industry. This includes everything from providing permits for and inspecting new wells to pipeline construction, as well as plugging older wells and overseeing coal and uranium mining.
  • The Texas Railroad Commission played a major role in the February 2021 grid failure. The Commission failed to enforce weatherization requirements on the industry, which led to the grid failing. Then, during the storm, the Commission was central in making billions for oil and gas executives and making Texans foot the bill.
  • The Texas Railroad Commission DOES NOT oversee the railroads, but it used to. The Commission was established in 1891 to prevent railroad monopolies. When oil and gas got big in Texas, it was given responsibility to do the same thing in that industry.
  • The Commission is governed by three elected Commissioners who serve in staggered 6-year terms (much like the Senate). One Commissioner is elected every 2 years. There are no limits on the number of subsequent terms a Commissioner can serve.
  • The Commission has relatively lax conflict of interest policies. The majority of campaign contributions to the current Commissioners have come from the industry and all three Commissioners are partial owners in the companies they are supposed to be regulating.
