Sharon Wilson, Decatur, TX “The RRC is doing a poor job of regulating the oil & gas industries. 296,000 active oil & gas wells went uninspected in Texas last year…I worked in the industry for 12 years. I am a mineral owner and was a landowner in Wise County where I lived with the Barnett Shale development for 16 years. During that time I had a great deal of first hand experience with the RRC…Citizens report that their complaints to the RRC are often met with contempt, skepticism, or ridicule. The investigations that follow up are unprofessional and unsatisfactory. Texans have lost faith in the Railroad Commission and it is a top-down problem. The RRC serves all Texans regardless of their political beliefs, yet Commissioner Smitherman is banning concerned citizens from commenting on his Facebook page.”
