The Hearings Division is responsible for scheduling, conducting, and preparing recommendations on hearings concerning oil and gas, gas utilities, pipeline safety, alternative fuels safety, and surface mining matters within the Commission’s jurisdiction.  The Commission’s hearings are presided over by eight administrative law judges and seven technical examiners.

If you are planning to attend the hearing, please be aware of changes to traffic patterns and the availability of metered parking in the area due to the Capitol Complex Construction project. There is limited metered parking in the capitol complex area. You may find paid parking at the Bob Bullock Museum across the street from the William B. Travis State Office Building or there is also a Capitol Visitors Parking Garage at 1201 San Jacinto Blvd. For access to the building, you can enter through the ground level from Brazos St. You may want to consider the additional time for parking and entering the building.
