The Texas Railroad Commission has proposed new regulations, 16 TAC §§7.6001-7.6007, new Subchapter F, pertaining to the appeal process for pipeline owners and/or operators regarding a city’s assessment of an annual charge. These new provisions would give the Railroad Commission exclusive jurisdiction to determine whether a city’s annual charge is authorized under Texas Natural Resources Code, §117.102(b)(1), or Texas Utilities Code, §121.2025(b)(1). The earliest possible date of adoption of these rules is September 24, 2006. For more information on this proposed legislation, please click here.
