Facts of the case

A railroad company in Texas charged higher haulage rates for service between Shreveport, Louisiana and Dallas, Texas, than it did for service involving greater distances within Texas. The Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) ordered the railroad to charge similar rates for similar distances within and between states.

Question

Did the ICC have the power to regulate intrastate rates?
