On March 28, the Texas Railroad Commission held its first information-gathering meeting to prepare for developing new damage prevention regulations for pipelines in Texas. The informal meeting was used to explain the recent legislation in Texas that provides for new TRRC regulations and to gather suggestions from the audience about potential regulatory issues that should be addressed. An official docket has not yet been established for this issue, but will be by the time a proposed rulemaking is developed. For now, suggestions and comments can be sent directly to Mary McDaniel, Pipeline Safety Director at the TRRC, for her consideration in developing a proposed rule. The next meeting will be at the William B. Travis Bldg. – Room 1-100 in Austin, Texas, on May 23.
