Meeting Site:

1. Opening comments: William Galinsky, Hospital Payment Advisory Committee Chair.
2. Approval of February 12, 2015, meeting minutes (Vote required).
INFORMATIONAL ITEM:
3. Potentially Preventable Readmissions and Potentially Preventable Complications.*
The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes to amend the Texas Administrative Code, Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 35, §354.1445 (relating to Potentially Preventable Readmissions) and §354.1446 (relating to Potentially Preventable Complications). The rules are being amended for two reasons. The first is to outline the ability of a hospital to request its underlying data used in the analysis that determines penalties and incentive payments. The proposed amendments specify the additional information a hospital can expect in the underlying data, including readmission data on other hospitals.
The second reason is to identify a methodology for incentives for HHSC-defined safety-net hospitals. This is pursuant to House Bill 1, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015 (Article II, Special Provisions Section 59(b)), which directs HHSC to provide incentive payments to safety-net hospitals in the amount of $150,378,593 (all funds) in fiscal year 2016 and $148,641,716 (all funds) in fiscal year 2017. It specifies that HHSC establish a program to use ten percent of these additionally appropriated funds to distribute to these hospitals based on quality metrics. Total reimbursement for each hospital must not exceed its hospital specific limit. However, HHSC will expend ten percent of these funds to provide additional increases to safety-net hospitals above which exceed existing quality metrics, which may result in exceeding the hospital specific limit. To the extent possible, HHSC will ensure that any funds included in Medicaid managed care capitation rates are distributed by the managed care organizations to the hospitals.

4. Proposed Policy for Possible Employer Location
X Action Possible Action Information Minutes: 10
Presenter: Michael Morris, NCTCOG
Item Summary: At the January 14, 2016, Regional Transportation Council (RTC) meeting, staff proposed a policy for RTC consideration regarding how the Council may wish to consider requests for infrastructure assistance associated with the location of new employers to the Dallas-Fort Worth region. This item came at the request of Councilmember Sandy Greyson. RTC members determined that additional time was needed to consider how to handle such requests.
Background: In October 2015, the RTC was asked to approve a funding request for infrastructure needed to attract/retain a potential major employer in a specific location in the region. At the meeting, RTC members expressed a desire to develop a policy for handling such requests fairly in the future to ensure that all interested localities have an equitable chance to participate. To this end, at the January 2016 RTC meeting, staff proposed a two-step process. Initially, after a request is received, an item is posted on the RTC agenda declaring that an employer is considering a relocation to Dallas-Fort Worth and that infrastructure has been requested by the potentially affected entity. This notification is intended to level the playing field and allow other entities to participate in the process. Then, the actual funding request will be brought back to the RTC for action. In most cases, the provision of funding for transportation improvements will be contingent upon the location being chosen (i.e., if the location is not chosen, the funding would not be needed for transportation improvements). Reference Item 4 contains the proposed RTC policy to assist local governments in attracting large employers (This is unchanged from last month and would need to be developed further if the RTC is interested). Significant discussion occurred at the January 2016 RTC meeting with members asking staff to bring the item back this month for further consideration. One possible solution would be to eliminate the first step and not have a policy. The RTC would simply respond to the step two request and confirm its intent based on the merits of the transportation recommendation.

1:30 – 1:50
5. Mobility 2040 and Transportation Conformity
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 20
Presenters: Chad McKeown and Chris Klaus, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Staff will provide an update on the development of
Mobility 2040, the next long-range transportation plan for the region and the associated 2016 Transportation Conformity. Draft recommendations will be presented, including major roadway and transit corridors. Staff will also provide a review of the policy bundle initiative. In addition, staff will provide preliminary results of the air quality conformity analysis.
Background: One of the primary responsibilities of the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the development and maintenance of a metropolitan transportation plan (MTP). The last comprehensive update of the MTP occurred in 2011 with the adoption of Mobility 2035. Since then, Mobility 2035 has gone through two revisions: an update in 2013 and an amendment in 2014, along with two successful conformity determinations. Work has been completed throughout 2015 on the development of a new MTP, Mobility 2040. This plan reassesses existing recommendations and includes new demographics, financial forecasts, and planning initiatives.

The Clean Air Act (CAA) requires MPOs to perform an air quality conformity determination when a new MTP is developed to ensure the multi-modal transportation system complies with applicable Motor Vehicle Emission Budgets (MVEB) established for the region. Per the CAA, staff has conducted the analysis for the required MVEB analysis year (2017), the MTP horizon year (2040), and two interim years (2027 and 2037), not more than 10 years apart.

Staff has initiated the formal public involvement process on the draft recommendations of Mobility 2040 and the associated transportation conformity. The draft MTP recommendations are summarized in Electronic Item 5.1, including the draft results of the conformity analysis, and the draft Mobility 2040 document is available for review at the link provided in Electronic Item 5.2. Staff will request RTC approval of Mobility 2040 in March 2016.

1:50 – 2:00
6. Cotton Belt Corridor Policy
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10
Presenter: Michael Morris, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Staff will present the draft Regional Transportation Council (RTC) Policy Position on Transit Implementation in the Cotton Belt Corridor.
Background: At its December 10, 2015, meeting, the RTC requested public input on recommendations in the Cotton Belt Corridor. Public comments were presented at the January 14, 2016, RTC meeting, as well as a draft policy regarding transit service in the Cotton Belt Corridor. A copy of the policy is provided in Electronic Item 6. It is unchanged from last month's meeting. Staff is requesting members provide possible amendments to the policy so it can be approved with Mobility 2040 at the
March 10, 2016, meeting.

2:00 – 2:10
7. Federal Legislative Update
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10
Presenter: Amanda Wilson, NCTCOG
Item Summary: The Regional Transportation Council will be provided with information on the new long-term transportation bill, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.
Background: The FAST Act was approved by Congress and signed by the President on December 4, 2015. The FAST Act replaces the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) Act and provides five years of authorization and funding for federal highway and transit programs. A summary of the bill is provided in Electronic Item 7. Congress had been working to approve a new surface transportation bill since MAP-21 expired on September 30, 2014, and was continuing on multiple extensions.

2:10 – 2:20
8. Manages Lanes Communication Workshop Update
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10
Presenter: Amanda Wilson, NCTCOG
Item Summary: An overview of the Managed Lanes Communication Workshop will be presented. Staff will outline a path forward to improve the understanding and purpose of managed lanes in the region.
Background: A Managed Lanes Communication Workshop took place prior to the January 14, 2016, Regional Transportation Council meeting. The agenda and presentation is provided in Electronic Item 8.

2:20 – 2:30
9. Update Regarding the Texas Department of Transportation Congestion Relief Program
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10
Presenters: Michael Morris and Christie Gotti, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Staff will update the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) regarding the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Congestion Relief partnership with the RTC.
Background: Last month, TxDOT indicated that statewide funding of approximately $1 billion - $1.3 billion was available for partnerships with metropolitan areas of the State for congestion projects. At the Texas Transportation Commission (TTC) meeting on January 28, 2016, the final dollar amount of
$1.3 billion was confirmed. The Dallas-Fort Worth region’s share of the total funding is $163.8 million for the western subregion and $364 million for the eastern subregion. Through this agenda item, staff will brief the RTC on changes to specific projects resulting from the larger dollar amount. Any adjustments to the region's east/west equity will be addressed during the March RTC meeting, when the quarterly east/west equity report is presented. TxDOT’s final approval date is scheduled for February 25, 2016. Electronic Item 9 provides additional details about the partnership and the proposed projects.

2:30 – 2:40
10. 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program Development Draft Listings
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10
Presenter: Adam Beckom, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Staff will brief the Council on the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) development process and present the draft project listings.
Background: A new TIP is developed every two years through a cooperative effort among the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), the Texas Department of Transportation, local governments, and transportation authorities. The TIP is a staged, multi-year listing of transportation projects with committed funding from federal, State, and local sources within the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. Electronic Item 10.1 contains the draft project listings to be included in the
2017-2020 TIP. Comments from local and transportation agencies are due to NCTCOG by February 12, 2016, in order for updated information to be included in the final listings being presented at public meetings in early March 2016. These listings were provided to Surface Transportation Technical Committee members on January 22, 2016, to initiate the review process. Additional details regarding the 2017-2020 TIP development effort are available in Electronic Item 10.2.

2:40 – 2:50
11. Air Quality Freight Initiatives
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10
Presenter: Jeff Hathcock, NCTCOG
Item Summary: Staff will provide information regarding current air quality initiatives that are related to freight activities and provide an update on the new Texas Department of Transportation Freight Mobility Plan.
Background: Heavy-duty diesel vehicles contribute approximately 41 percent of all on-road nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions in the Dallas-
Fort Worth ozone nonattainment area. The Regional Transportation Council has authorized staff to pursue a variety of activities that directly address emissions from this sector. The initiatives include SmartWay, idling restrictions, the Heavy-Duty Diesel Inspection and Maintenance Pilot program, and a new education and outreach program titled Saving Money and Reducing Truck Emissions. Through these initiatives, air quality will be improved through three of the seven air quality emphasis areas: high-emitting vehicles, idling, and energy/fuel consumption. Finally, the new Texas Freight Mobility Plan was recently approved by the Texas Transportation Commission and will provide a blueprint for future economic growth by strengthening freight mobility throughout the State. Electronic Item 11 provides additional details.


2:50 – 3:00
12. Lawsuits Against Volkswagen Group of America, Inc., Audi of America, LLC, and Porsche Cars North America
Action Possible Action X Information Minutes: 10

Item Summary: Staff will highlight findings and activity related to emission test-cheat devices installed in certain Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche diesel vehicles.
Background: Late last year, certain 2.0 and 3.0 liter diesel engines in Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche vehicle models were identified to have emissions test-cheat devices allowing tailpipe emissions up to 40 times the legal level of nitrogen oxides (NOX). In response to these findings, both the Texas Attorney General (AG) and the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) have separately filed lawsuits against the auto manufacturers. Elsewhere in Texas, Harris County filed a separate suit for actions related to Harris County.

Electronic Item 12.1 is draft correspondence to the DOJ and Texas AG requesting, if any settlement funds are awarded as a result of the lawsuits against Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche, these funds be dispersed to nonattainment regions for air quality projects and/or programs. At the March 10, 2016, Regional Transportation Council meeting, staff will request approval to transmit this correspondence to the DOJ and Texas AG. Additional information is provided in Electronic Item 12.2.

The proposed amendments to 19 TAC §§249.5, 249.15, 249.17, and 249.35 would create more specific penalty guidelines for Texas Education Agency (TEA) staff to follow in settling or prosecuting educator discipline cases.

13. Consider and Take Appropriate Action on Proposed New 19 TAC Chapter 234, Military Service Members, Military Spouses, and Military Veterans

15. Consider and Take Appropriate Action on Recommendations from Classroom Teacher Standards Advisory Committee

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) with an update on the work of the Classroom Teacher Standards Advisory Committee.

Agenda: PRESENTATIONS

Draft Mobility 2040 Recommendations

As the metropolitan planning organization for the Dallas-Fort Worth area, NCTCOG is required to maintain a long-range transportation plan that defines a blueprint for the region’s multimodal transportation system and guides expenditures of local, state and federal transportation funds. This long-range plan must have a time horizon of at least 20 years. Over the last year staff has been developing Mobility 2040, the next long-range transportation plan, and will present draft recommendations and information for public review and comment. Draft recommendations for major roadways, transit projects and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure will be highlighted along with a program to encourage local agency adoption of transportation-related policies and a list of near-term Transportation Improvement Program projects affected by the Mobility 2040 plan. Mobility 2040 is expected to be adopted by the RTC in March 2016.


2016 Transportation Conformity

Transportation Conformity is a federal requirement in nonattainment areas to conduct air quality analysis on projects, programs and policies identified in transportation plans, transportation improvement programs, federally funded projects or projects requiring federal approval. Conformity determinations must demonstrate consistency between ozone-causing emissions expected from the implementation of transportation plans and programs and requirements set by the state. Ten Dallas-Fort Worth area counties are designated nonattainment for the pollutant ozone. Staff will present information regarding draft results for the 2016 Transportation Conformity.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO BE HIGHLIGHTED AT THE MEETING

Vehicle Repair and Replacement Assistance Available Through AirCheckTexas Program

Financial assistance to repair or replace a high-polluting vehicle is available to eligible applicants through the AirCheckTexas program. North Texans whose vehicles have failed the emissions portion of the state inspection in the past 30 days or are at least 10 years old are encouraged to apply for assistance if they meet the income criteria. The program is designed to help vehicle owners comply with vehicle emissions standards by offering financial incentives to repair or replace vehicles and allows local residents to contribute to the regional air quality solution. This successful program has been extremely popular in years past and expects to replace over 6,000 vehicles in North Texas this fiscal year.


Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities Annual Report and Recognition

During the first-ever Clean Fleet Awards, Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities recently recognized nine local entities for efforts to reduce emissions and petroleum consumption based on annual report data. Clean Cities is a US Department of Energy program to promote the use of alternative fuels and lessen America’s dependence on foreign sources of petroleum. Since 1995, the Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities has been working in the region to improve air quality and increase energy security. Staff are currently collecting data from efforts in 2015. To learn more about Clean Cities, award recipients and complete the annual report, visit www.dfwcleancities.org.


Annual List of Obligated Projects

Federal regulations require NCTCOG to develop an annual list of obligated projects, including investments in roadways, transit, maintenance, pedestrian walkways and bicycle transportation facilities, for which federal funds were obligated in the preceding fiscal year. In coordination with the Texas Department of Transportation and public transportation agencies, NCTCOG compiles the information and publishes the annual list of projects online.

1. CALL TO ORDER – 8:15 AM

2. REVIEW OF THE AGENDA

3. THE TEXAS BOARD OF NURSING WILL MEET TO CONSIDER AND TAKE ACTION ON THE FOLLOWING:

A. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #172254

Issued to: JACQUELYNN KAY HANKE

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Jacquelynn Kay Hanke poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about December 7, 2015, Respondent became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on September 10, 2014. On or about December 7, 2015, Respondent produced a specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Ethyl Glucuronide and Ethyl Sulfate, metabolites of alcohol. Respondent's failure to abstain from the consumption of alcohol is a violation of Stipulation Number Twelve (12) of the Agreed Order dated September 10, 2014, which expressly states:

"(12) RESPONDENT SHALL abstain from the consumption of alcohol . . . ."

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(1)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 Tex. Admin. Code §217.12(11)(B).

On or about December 7, 2015, while employed with Progressive Medical Center, Austin, Texas, Respondent engaged in the intemperate use of alcohol in that she produced a specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Ethyl Glucuronide and Ethyl Sulfate. The use of alcohol by a Licensed Vocational Nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse's ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in the patient's condition, and could impair the nurse's ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(9)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 Tex. Admin. Code §217.12(1)(B),(1)(E),(4),(5),(10)(A)&(10)(D).

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

B. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF VOCATIONAL NURSE LICENSE #310237

Issued to: JUAN IGNACIO MARTINEZ

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Juan Ignacio Martinez poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about December 10, 2015, Respondent became non-compliant with the agreed order issued to him by the Texas Board of Nursing on October 22, 2013, requiring him to successfully complete the Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (TPAPN). Specifically, non-compliance is the result of Respondent submitting a specimen for a drug screen which produced a positive result for Tramadol (473ng/mL), a controlled medication. Stipulation number three (3) of the agreed order dated October 22, 2013, states:

(3) RESPONDENT SHALL comply with all requirements of the TPAPN participation agreement during its term and SHALL keep all applicable license(s) to practice nursing in the State of Texas current.

One such requirement was Paragraph Number Six (6). “Participants must abstain completely from the use of all illicit substances, controlled medications (including controlled prescription medication) or other abusable substances including alcohol.” On or about December 28, 2015, Respondent's case was closed with TPAPN and referred back to the Board for disposition.

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(1)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 Tex. Admin. Code §217.12(3),(4),(9),(10)(D)&(11)(B).

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

C. CONSIDERATION OF TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF REGISTERED NURSE LICENSE #604206

Issued to: ALICIA FAITH PANACCIONE

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, immediate action is required of the Texas Board of Nursing because the continued practice of Alicia Faith Panaccione poses a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about December 14, 2015, Respondent failed to comply with the Agreed Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on June 11, 2013. Non-compliance is the result of Respondent's failure to abstain from the consumption of alcohol in that she produced a specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) and Ethyl Sulfate (EtS), which are both metabolites of alcohol. Stipulation Number Fourteen (14) of the Agreed Order, dated June 11, 2013, states:

“RESPONDENT SHALL abstain from the consumption of alcohol, Nubain, Stadol, Dalgan, Ultram, or other synthetic opiates, and/or the use of controlled substances, except as prescribed by a licensed practitioner for a legitimate purpose.”

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(1)&(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 Tex. Admin. Code §217.12(11)(B).

Under the authority of Tex. Occ. Code Ann. §301.4551, the Board is required to take immediate action based upon the above conduct. Respondent’s continued practice constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.

On or about October 13, 2015, Respondent produced a urine specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for Tramadol.
