Railroad Commission moves to cut regulations on oil, gas firms
from Houston Chronicle
Texas' oil and gas regulator, emboldened by possible changes in federal energy policy, is paring down regulations on the industry, arguing that removing regulatory burdens will create more energy jobs in Texas. The Railroad Commission, which launched the initiative last summer, has changed rules to lower compliance costs for oil and gas companies and encourage them to report their own violations by waiving penalties.
