The Texas Senate passed a bill that would create the Texas Energy Policy Committee, which would advise lawmakers on energy-related issues. The measure was introduced by Sen. Troy Fraser (R-Horseshoe Bay). It also would require the Railroad Commission of Texas to study the state's coal and natural gas reserves and advise on their best use for power generation. The 12-member committee would include the chairs of five state agencies, two senators, two House members, two academic members and an appointed director. The measure is now to be considered by the House.
