Industry Brief

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) has adopted rule amendments designed to reduce natural gas rate case legal expenses that can be passed onto natural gas customers. Rule amendments do not change cities' original jurisdiction over gas rate cases within city limits, but they align the appellate process with rules already outlined in the Texas Administrative Code when a city and natural gas distribution utility company cannot reach an agreement on rates at the city level and therefore file an appeal at the RRC. The streamlining is intended to reduce rate case expenses that can be passed onto gas utility customers (see Daily GPISept. 26). The changes are slated to take effect Sept. 1.
