The Purpose of Commission ShiftThe Workover Blog, Videos

The purpose of Commission Shift is to hold the Railroad Commission of Texas accountable to its mission in a shifting energy landscape.

Contrary to what its name implies, the Railroad Commission has no jurisdiction over railroads. Instead the agency oversees oil and gas development, coal and uranium mining, gas utility service, and pipeline safety in Texas.

This is an agency that affects all Texans, and so we need everyone to pay attention to it.
