Honorable Tames E. Kilday, Director, Page 3
reoord Is made under the direction of a e nds-
stoner, or authorized representative or examiner
of the commission, a majority of the ocanisiaon
may, upon the record, render judgment as if the
case had been had before a majority of the mei-
bers of the oomaission."
Under the provisions of the above statutes as quoted
it is the opinion of this department that the commission has
the power to prescribe such rules and regulations with respect
to hearings before it or before one of its examiners as it
may deem expedient so long as suoh rules and regulations are
reasonable and do not deprive an interested party of his right
to fairly present the matter in controversy. As we understand
it, under the facts presented in your letter, all of the evi-
denoe in the matter was presented before the examiner and peti-
tioner was accorded a full, fair and complete hearing. This
being the osse, it is our opinion, and you are so advised, that
the matter of allowing oral argments at this stage of the pro-
oeedings before the comiasion or a majority of the members
thereof is a. question that is addressed to the sound discretion
of the ocamission and the granting of such request is not man-
datory. Rodriques v. Priest, 126 8. W. 1187, McHugh v. Peck,
29 Tex. 141.
Trusting that this answers your question fully, we
Very truly yours
