It’s so obvious that Dale Henry is the only candidate in the Railroad Commissioner race who knows what he’s talking about.
Quotes from a Star-Telegram article:
Henry, the retired petroleum engineer, said, “The Railroad Commission of Texas should not sit idly by as energy companies stick bills for hotel rooms and cases of wine to their ratepayers through cost-of-service rate increases” — a reference to various luxury items put in a recent rate case by Atmos Energy.
The North Texas utility removed the items after reports appeared in the Star-Telegram.
Henry also said the commissioner has not done enough to ensure that Texans pay only the appropriate commodity price of natural gas and has “not done a credible job in reviewing and approving cost-of-service rate increases for natural gas companies.”
It’s worth reading the whole article because they call attention to the fact that Henry’s opponents aren’t even clear about what the RRC does.
