Agency History

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) regulates the exploration, production, and transportation of oil and natural gas in Texas. Its statutory role is to prevent waste of the state's natural resources, to protect the correlative rights of different interest owners, to prevent pollution, and to provide safety in matters such as hydrogen sulfide. It oversees hazardous materials pipelines and natural gas pipelines and distribution systems as well as propane, butane, compressed natural gas, and liquefied natural gas. It works to make sure a continuous, safe supply of natural gas is available to Texas consumers at the lowest reasonable price. Additionally, the RRC oversees surface mining for coal, uranium, and iron ore gravel and conducts a program for reclaiming lands that were mined and abandoned before 1975.

The RRC had its origin in the demands of the shipping public in the late 1880s that insisted that railroads be subject to regulation based on public interest. An advocate for governmental regulation, Attorney General James Stephen Hogg ran for Governor in 1890 with the issue of railroad regulation as the focal point of the campaign. Hogg was elected Governor in the general election and the voters also approved an amendment to Article X, Section 2 of the Texas Constitution that empowered the legislature to enact statutes creating regulatory agencies. These elections paved the way for the legislature to enact on April 3, 1891 "An Act to Establish a Railroad Commission of the State of Texas," that later was placed in the Texas Revised Civil Statutes under article 6444 et seq. (House Bills 1, 3, and 58, 22nd Texas Legislature, Regular Session).

The RRC originally consisted of three members appointed by the governor for three-year terms. Governor Hogg appointed the first three commissioners in 1891 including John H. Reagan, who resigned as U.S. Senator from Texas to serve as the first chairman. The Texas Constitution, Article XIX, Section 30 was amended in 1894 to provide for elective six-year overlapping terms for the commissioners. That same year John H. Reagan was elected and served until his retirement in 1903.

The RRC was the first regulatory agency created in the State of Texas and originally had jurisdiction over the rates and operations of railroads, terminals, wharves and express companies. The legal focus was on intrastate passenger and freight activities. Interstate jurisdiction fell under the U.S. Interstate Commerce Commission. For the first twenty-five years of its existence, the RRC was largely concerned with regulating railroads, setting rates, receiving complaints, and making investigations. As other controversies arose where the legislature deemed that the public interest could best be served by regulation, additional duties were assigned to the RRC.

The RRC's authority was broadened beginning in 1917 with the passage of the Pipeline Petroleum Law (Senate Bill 68, 35th Legislature, Regular Session) that declared pipelines to be common carriers like railroads and placed them under the RRC's jurisdiction. This was the first act to designate the RRC as the agency to administer conservation laws relating to oil and gas. The RRC's regulatory and enforcement powers in oil and gas were increased by the Oil and Gas Conservation Law (Senate Bill 350, 36th Legislature, Regular Session), effective June 18, 1919. This act gave the RRC jurisdiction to regulate the production of oil and gas. Acting upon this legislation, the RRC adopted in 1919 the first statewide rules regulating the oil and gas industry to promote conservation and safety, including Rule 37. This rule requires minimum distances between wells at drilling sites in order to protect field pressure and correlative rights.

The Gas Utilities Act of 1920 (House Bill 11, 36th Legislature, 3rd Called Session) gave the RRC regulatory and rate authority over individuals and businesses producing, transporting, or distributing natural gas in Texas. In 1937, following a large natural gas explosion in a school in New London, Texas, the legislature passed legislation giving the RRC the authority to adopt rules and regulations pertaining to the odorization of natural gas or liquefied petroleum gases (House Bill 1017, 45th Legislature, Regular Session).

The passage of the Public Regulatory Act of 1975 (PURA) (House Bill 819, 64th Legislature, Regular Session) required certain state regulatory agencies, including the RRC, to set the overall revenues of a utility based on its "cost of service." Regulation of liquefied petroleum was added to the RRC's responsibilities in 1939 by the 46th Legislature (House Bill 792, Regular Session). The legislation authorized the RRC to adopt and enforce safety rules and standards in the storage, handling, transportation, and odorization of butane or liquefied petroleum gases. Regulation of compressed natural gas was added to the RRC's responsibilities in 1983 (Senate Bill 617, 68th Legislature, Regular Session).

The Motor Bus Law of 1927 (House Bill 50, 40th Legislature, Regular Session) and the Motor Carrier Law of 1929 (House Bill 654, 41st Legislature, Regular Session) extended the RRC's regulatory powers to commercial transportation of persons and property on state highways. In 1995, following federal deregulation of motor carriers, the 74th Legislature eliminated the agency's authority to regulate commercial carriers involved in intrastate transport and transferred the remaining responsibilities related to commercial carriers (motor carrier registration, insurance verification, and safety) to the Texas Department of Transportation (Senate Bill 971, Regular Session), and the Texas Department of Public Safety (Senate Bill 3, Regular Session).

The Texas Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975 (Senate Bill 55, 64th Legislature, Regular Session) authorized the RRC to regulate the exploration for and surface mining of coal, lignite, and uranium within the state and to oversee the reclamation of lands disturbed by surface mining operations. In 1991, the 72nd Legislature passed the Texas Aggregate Quarry and Pit Safety Act (House Bill 451, Regular Session), that authorized the RRC to regulate quarry and pit operations.

The Surface Mining and Reclamation Division (SMRD) oversees the exploration of and surface mining for coal, uranium, and iron ore gravel and the reclamation of land disturbed by surface mining operations. It also conducts a program for reclaiming lands that were mined before 1975 and left unrestored. Companies must have a permit from the commission for each mining site operated in the state. Before permits are issued, the companies must submit a performance bond that will provide funds for reclamation if the company fails to do an adequate reclamation job. The SMRD also studies mining sites to ensure the mining will not harm the quality or quantity of water in the area. It determines which abandoned mines pose the greatest threat to public health and safety and the environment, and designs a reclamation plan to address the greatest problems. Private contractors are used to do the reclamation.

The SMRD's Abandoned Mine Land (AML) Program implements Title IV of the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA). It is the intent of the AML program to reclaim and restore land and water resources and to protect the public from the adverse effects of pre-law (August 3, 1977) mining practices. This program is fully funded by the federal Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) through a production tax levied on active coal mining operations in Texas. Regulation of the abandoned mine land program by the RRC is through 16 TAC (Texas Administrative Code), §12.8. Reclamation of uranium mines is further regulated by 16 TAC §11.151-11.154.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) regulates the exploration, production, and transportation of oil and natural gas in Texas. Its statutory role is to prevent waste of the state's natural resources, to protect the correlative rights of different interest owners, to prevent pollution, and to provide safety in matters such as hydrogen sulfide. Additionally, the RRC oversees surface mining for coal, uranium, and iron ore gravel and conducts a program for reclaiming lands that were mined and abandoned before 1975. These records document reclamation activities undertaken by the Railroad Commission on abandoned mine lands, as mandated under Title IV of the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA) and the Texas Administrative Code, 16 TAC, §12.8, and §11.151-154. Files consist of correspondence, memoranda, appraisals, liens, grant histories, public notices and comments, bid documents, invoices and bills, contracts, inspection reports, field reports, progress reports, compliance reports, lab analyses, photographs, maps, soil analyses, certificates of insurance, and environmental assessments and impact statements. Dates covered are 1972-1995, bulk dating 1988-1993. The files cover contracting (proposals, bids, eligibility determination, issuance of contracts), construction, right of entry, land ownership, payments, and environmental studies undertaken after the reclamation work is completed. The studies report whether the land is properly reclaimed. Mines covered in these records include the 248 mine, Alcoa mine, I.F. Brysche mine, Darco mine, Olmos mine, Parker mine, Somerset mine, Study Butte mine, and the Terlingua mine. These files are microfiche; the paper copies no longer exist. The fiche have not been viewed by Archives staff. Data about the contents was supplied by the agency on the fiche labels and by staff of the Surface Mining and Reclamation Division during the appraisal of the agency.
