PROPOSALS are rules that have been approved by the commissioners to be published in the Texas Register for public comment. The public comment period usually lasts for 30 days after the publication date. After the public comment period has closed, staff evaluates all comments and makes appropriate changes to the proposed rule. The draft adoption is then filed with the Chief Clerk and moved to Pending Adoptions.

2013-025-317-LS Reproposal of Chapter 317: Design Criteria
The purpose for re-adopting 30 TAC Chapter 317 is to restore the status quo for enforcement of all pre-217 facilities. Re-adopting Chapter 317 will not undermine the purpose, effect, or applicability of 30 TAC Chapter 217. It will merely bring existing facilities back under TCEQ regulation to promote safety and proper operation of wastewater systems and to meet statutory requirements.
