RRC to Open Comment Period on Draft Chapter 1 Amendments

On March 17, 2017, the Texas Railroad Commission will open a public comment period on a proposal to simultaneously repeal and adopt several subchapters in 16 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 1. According to the RRC memorandum accompanying the rule proposal, RRC staff propose to repeal and replace Chapter 1 to reorganize and update certain rules in order to clarify current RRC practice and procedures and to reflect certain statutory changes. The changes to Chapter 1 will likely impact the procedure used in contested case proceedings in front of RRC hearing examiners.

The public comment period will be open from March 17, 2017 until May 1, 2017.
