RRC Candidate Forum Today

Railroad Commission Candidate Forum today
The Railroad Commission, which regulates oil and gas in Texas - including water recycling in the oil field - has its first wide-open race in a while. The agency has been an important partner in expanding water recycling, so plan to attend a forum today, January 25 at the Austin Club in Austin, Texas, at which all 6 candidates will appear to answer questions and make introductory presentations. The program begins at 3:30 p.m. on the 2nd floor.

The deadline to register to vote in Texas is Monday, February 1.
