Editorial: Time to refresh Railroad Commission of Texas Ethics

November 17, 2021
From San Antonio Express News
Excerpts from the article:

Commission Shift calls for changes, such as requiring commissioners to have no financial interest in the companies they regulate; limiting campaign contributions from entities that do business with the RRC; improving financial disclosures; strengthening recusal standards; and using a neutral forum for contested cases.

These commonsense changes would provide more transparency and help disentangle oil and gas interests from their regulators, because when it comes to ethics, even the perception of impropriety can derail credibility.
