Texas Supreme Court upholds Railroad Commission’s view of public interest
By Asher Price | March 11, 2011
The case pitted the Railroad Commission against an environmental group and landowner over the permitting of an injection well for oil and gas well waste. The court favored the Railroad Commission’s more narrow understanding of what it ought to consider when permitting such a well.
The commission does not have to consider the public’s interest when it comes to putting facilities in communities with very narrow roads where your children might play, or your teens might drive making it extremely dangerous for big trucks loaded with dangerous chemicals to drive all day, everyday.
Nice justice system we have in Texas. See, Karl Rove knew, when he moved into Texas, that starting at the lowest level of government and funding those races while also funding the judicial races was a great plan for corporations having their way in Texas. You can track it. I have. Track the campaign contributions of the judicial races going back to when Rove first started operating in Texas. He moved in and started operating in Texas when Ann Richards was governor, back when we could still be proud of Texas, back when Texas wasn’t ON THE BRINK.
