AUSTIN – In case you missed it, please see Railroad Commissioner Christi Craddick’s editorial outlining the role of the Railroad Commission of Texas across the state published in the Austin American-Statesman this week here.

“During this important time for oil and gas development in Texas, it is ever more critical that Texans are aware of the vital work the Railroad Commission is doing within their communities to ensure their safety and protection of our state’s natural resources,” Craddick said.
