The Railroad Commission of Texas will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 22 through Friday, Nov. 24 in observance of Thanksgiving. The RRC will reopen for regular business Monday morning, Nov. 27. We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.
The rules adopted by the Railroad Commission of Texas are part of a larger body of state agency rules known as the Texas Administrative Code (TAC). These rules are collected and published by the Office of the Secretary of State. The Railroad Commission of Texas may adopt new rules or amendments to existing rules.
Rules are adopted by state agencies (Executive branch), usually with specific rulemaking authority from the Legislature. To learn more about the state rulemaking process, see the Secretary of State’s website at www.sos.state.tx.us/txreg/index.shtml.
At Railroad Commission of Texas the Office of General Counsel oversees rulemaking activities. For more information, see the main rules page.
