Elizabeth Ames Jones, who resigned from the Texas Railroad Commission last year to pursue a state Senate seat, joined Patton Boggs LLP’s Public Policy and Energy and Natural Resources practice groups in Washington.
Jones was appointed to the commission, which regulates oil and gas drilling, pipeline permitting and other energy issues in the state, in 2005 by Governor Rick Perry. She was elected to a six-year term as one of three members on the commission in 2006, and resigned 11 months before her term expired to run for a state Senate seat.
