  9. 9. Learn About the Railroad Commission of Texas By Frank Le Grand Hear guest speaker Ronald L. Kitchens address the Men’s Club at the monthly luncheon on Thursday, May 17. This should be a very informative talk about The Railroad Commission of Texas. The Commission was created by the State in 1891 to regulate the private railroads spreading across the state. This resulted in economic regulation (passenger fares, shipping rates), including entry and exit authority (what locations to be served). Over the years, the Commissions jurisdiction grew to encompass many activities: oil and gas production and transportation (1919), gas utilities (1920), buses and trucks (1931), liquefied petroleum gas (1939), surface mining and reclamation (1976), and alternate fuels research (1991). Economic regulation was joined by health, safety, andBunny and Friends. environmental regulation. The last decades have brought regulatory changes. The Commission no longer regulates buses and trucks or railroads. The states oil and gas industry remains, however, a primary focus of the Railroad Commis- sion of Texas. Ronald L. Kitchens was most recently employed as the executive director of the Railroad Commission of Texas, where he also served as director of energy operations and gas services. He is a member of the Interstate Oil and Gas Com- pact Commission and the Potential Gas Committee. He was previously elected mayor and councilman of Manvel, Texas. Kitchens received a bachelor’s degree, a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in mathematics from the University of Houston. Why not make your reservation for this Men’s Club luncheon event right now? Just call the country club to reserve your spot. The luncheon will be in the Lakeside Room on Thursday, May 17.
