AUSTIN – Chairman Christi Craddick issued the following statement on the legislative passage of House Bill 1818 (HB 1818), the Railroad Commission’s Sunset legislation. HB 1818 now moves to Gov. Greg Abbott for his consideration.

“I want to thank the Legislature and our staff for their time and hard work on our agency’s Sunset bill,” Chairman Craddick said. “All of us at the Railroad Commission share in the commitment to protect the public and the environment in a way that allows the energy industry to remain an economic driver for our state. This Sunset review has spanned several legislative sessions and has resulted in an even stronger Railroad Commission today. We look forward to continuing the important work we do for the people of the great state of Texas.”

"As a former Railroad Commissioner, I know that Christi brings the right kind of experience to the job."
