Agenda

The Committee will accept comments in response to the publication of the following rule proposals in the June 27, 2014, edition of the Texas Register:

A. Proposal for New Rule 309.13, Temporary License to Conduct Racing
This proposal would establish conditions and standards for the granting of a temporary license under Texas Racing Act Section 6.15, Racing at Temporary Location.

This proposal would remove the specific threshold levels for Androgenic-Anabolic Steroids from Rule 319.364 and allow the executive director to specify those levels. This change is consistent with the treatment of other permissible therapeutic medications under Rule 319.3, Medication Restricted.

The Committee will discuss closing the rule reviews of the following chapters pursuant to Texas Government Code, Section 2001.039:

The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §249.15 would conform this section to the proposed amendments approved by the SBEC to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs. The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §249.16 would clarify that multiple statutory provisions provide the basis for certification actions based on criminal history.

15. Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 233, Categories of Classroom Teaching Certificates

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to discuss and propose amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 233, Categories of Classroom Teaching Certificates, §§233.1, General Authority; 233.2, Generalist; 233.6, Bilingual Education; 233.7, English as a Second Language; and 233.13, Career and Technical Education (Certificates not requiring experience and preparation in a skill area). The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §233.2 would add new certificates for Core Subjects: Early Childhood-Grade 6 and Core Subjects: Grades 4-8 to be issued no earlier than January 1, 2015. The proposed amendments to 19 TAC §§233.2, 233.6, and 233.7 would add deadlines for completion and submission requirements for the Generalist certificates. The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §233.13 would clarify deadlines for completion and submission requirements for the Agricultural Science and Technology: Grades 6-12 and Business Education: Grades 6-12 certificates.

17. Adoption of Proposed Amendment to 19 TAC Chapter 249, Disciplinary Proceedings, Sanctions, and Contested Cases, Subchapter B, Enforcement Actions and Guidelines, §249.17, Decision-Making Guidelines

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, an amendment to 19 TAC Chapter 249, Disciplinary Proceedings, Sanctions, and Contested Cases, Subchapter B, Enforcement Actions and Guidelines, §249.17, Decision-Making Guidelines. The proposed amendment would clarify that under the SBEC decision-making guidelines, actions that constitute "engaged in" and "solicitation" are distinct grounds for permanent revocation or denial of certification. The proposed amendment would also clarify that fact findings from final orders from other state jurisdictions may also provide the basis for initiating disciplinary proceedings in Texas.

18. Adoption of Proposed Revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 227, Provisions for Educator Preparation Candidates

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, proposed revisions to 19 TAC Chapter 227, Provisions for Educator Preparation Candidates. The proposed revisions would be necessary as a result of House Bill (HB) 2012, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, which requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the SBEC, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to perform a joint review of the existing standards for preparation and admission that are applicable to educator preparation programs (EPPs). The proposed revisions would update the rules to reflect current law, clarify minimum standards for all EPPs, allow for flexibility, and ensure consistency among EPPs in the state. An additional change is recommended to the proposed amendment to 19 TAC §227.5.

19. Adoption of Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 228, Requirements for Educator Preparation Programs

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, proposed amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 228, Requirements for Educator Preparation Programs. The proposed amendments would be necessary as a result of House Bill (HB) 2012, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, which requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the SBEC, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to perform a joint review of the existing standards for preparation and admission that are applicable to educator preparation programs (EPPs), and Senate Bill (SB) 460, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013. The proposed amendments would update the rules to reflect current law, clarify minimum standards for all EPPs, allow for flexibility, and ensure consistency among EPPs in the state. Additional changes are recommended to the proposed amendments to 19 TAC §§228.2, 228.20, 228.30, and 228.35 since published as proposed.

20. Adoption of Proposed Amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §§229.2-229.8, and Withdrawal of Proposed Amendment to 19 TAC §229.9, Fees for Educator Preparation Program Approval and Accountability

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, proposed amendments to 19 TAC Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §§229.2-229.8. House Bill 2012, 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013, requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA), the SBEC, and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to perform a joint review of the existing standards for preparation and admission that are applicable to educator preparation programs (EPPs). Due to its related nature, a review of Chapter 229 was also conducted and, as a result, proposed amendments to Chapter 229 are necessary. The proposed amendments would update and make uniform definitions, modify the standards used for enforcing the reporting of data, clarify the standards used for accountability, adjust the small group exception requirements, and establish a new process for challenging sanctions imposed on programs that fail the accountability system. Additional changes are recommended to the proposed amendments to 19 TAC §§229.2, 229.3, 229.4, 229.5, 229.7, and 229.8 since published as proposed.

This item also presents the withdrawal of the proposed amendment to 19 TAC §229.9, Fees for Educator Preparation Program Approval and Accountability, which was approved for filing as proposed in May 2014. The proposed withdrawal would enable TEA staff to conduct a more thorough review and obtain stakeholder input to address the Sunset Commission's recommendation to revise fees associated with EPPs.

21. Adoption of Proposed Amendment to 19 TAC Chapter 250, Administration, Subchapter B, Rulemaking Procedures, §250.20, Petition for Adoption of Rules or Rule Changes

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to adopt, subject to State Board of Education (SBOE) review, a proposed amendment to 19 TAC Chapter 250, Administration, Subchapter B, Rulemaking Procedures, §250.20, Petition for Adoption of Rules or Rule Changes. The proposed amendment to 19 TAC §250.20 would clarify references to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and update the petition form to reflect the name of the office to which the form should be mailed.

22. Consideration of Petition for Adoption of Rule Change Concerning 19 TAC Chapter 239, Student Services Certificates, Subchapter B, School Librarian Certificate, §239.60, Requirements for the Issuance of the Standard School Librarian Certificate

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to consider a citizen petition on 19 TAC Chapter 239, Student Services Certificates, Subchapter B, School Librarian Certificate, §239.60, Requirements for the Issuance of the Standard School Librarian Certificate, filed pursuant to Texas Government Code, §2001.021. The petition requests an amendment to 19 TAC §239.60(4) that would allow the experience of teaching in a school setting for 15 hours a week or more, whether as an academic tutor or any other related experience to be considered comparable to the two creditable years of teaching experience as a classroom teacher. The SBEC must either deny the petition or direct the Texas Education Agency (TEA) staff to initiate rulemaking proceedings.

23. Discussion of 19 TAC Chapter 227, Provisions for Educator Preparation Candidates, Subchapter B, Preliminary Evaluation of Certification Eligibility, §227.107, Fee for Request for Preliminary Criminal History Evaluation; Chapter 229, Accountability System for Educator Preparation Programs, §229.9, Fees for Educator Preparation Program Approval and Accountability; and Chapter 230, Professional Educator Preparation and Certification, Subchapter G, Certificate Issuance Procedures, §230.99, Fees for Certification Services, §230.101, Schedule of Fees for Certification Services, and §230.103, E-Pay Supplemental Fee

The Sunset Advisory Commission recommended a management action that fees in rule for educator certification and educator preparation programs be evaluated and adjusted to cover costs and ensure equity.

24. Discussion of Educator Preparation Program Complaints Procedures

This item provides the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) an opportunity to discuss procedures for filing a complaint against an educator preparation program (EPP). The intent is to establish a complaint procedure, impose specific responsibilities on an EPP, and establish the consequences if an EPP is found to be in violation of SBEC rules codified in the Texas Administrative Code. The Sunset Advisory Commission recommended a management action that procedures for EPP complaints outline all phases of the EPP complaint process, as well as track and analyze complaint data.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND INTENT TO OBTAIN
WATER QUALITY PERMIT AMENDMENT
AND
NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION FOR TPDES PERMIT FOR MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER AMENDMENT
AND
NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING
FOR TPDES WATER QUALITY PERMIT AMENDMENT

PERMIT NO. WQ0014477001

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. City of Liberty Hill, P.O. Box 1920, Liberty Hill, Texas 78642, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0014477001 to authorize an increase in the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from an annual average flow not to exceed 1,200,000 gallons per day to an annual average flow not to exceed 4,000,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on February 11, 2013.

This combined notice is being issued to correct the zip code in the facility location description and meet the TCEQ's requirement that the notices be published in the newspaper of largest circulation in the county in which the facility is located.

The facility is located approximately 5,000 feet north of the South Fork San Gabriel River and 2,000 feet east of US Highway 183 in Williamson County, Texas 78641. The treated effluent is discharged to South Fork San Gabriel River in Segment No. 1250 of the Brazos River Basin. The designated uses for Segment No. 1250 are high aquatic life use, public water supply, aquifer protection and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code § 307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (June 2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier I antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in the South Fork San Gabriel River, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the application or notice. For the exact location, please refer to the application. www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=30.631944&lng=-97.861666&zoom=13&type=r

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit. The draft permit, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments or request a public meeting about this application. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or ask questions about the application. The TCEQ holds a public meeting if the Executive Director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator.

A public meeting will be held and will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing under the Administrative Procedure Act. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public will be encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the permit application, to which responses will be provided orally during the Informal Discussion Period. The comments and questions submitted orally during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered before a decision is reached on the permit application and no formal response will be made. During the Formal Comment Period on the permit application, members of the public may state their formal comments orally into the official record. A written response to all timely, relevant, and material, or significant comments will be prepared by the Executive Director. All formal comments will be considered before a decision is reached on the permit application. A copy of the written response will be sent to each person who submits a formal comment or who requested to be on the mailing list for this permit application and provided a mailing address. For issues raised during the public meeting, only relevant and material issues raised during the Formal Comment Period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted on this permit application.

The Public Meeting will be held:
Thursday, August 7, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.
Liberty Hill Municipal Court Building
2801 RR 1869
Liberty Hill, Texas 78642

‎INFORMATION. Citizens are encouraged to submit written comments anytime during the meeting or by mail to the Office of the Chief Clerk, TCEQ, Mail Code MC-105, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, TX 78711-3087, or electronically at www.tceq.texas.gov/about/comments.html.


OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitting public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and materials, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments, and the executive Director's decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments and to those persons who are on the mailing list for this application. If comments are received, the mailing will also provide instructions for requesting reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision and for requesting a contested case hearing. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court.

TO REQUEST A CONTESTED CASE HEARING, YOU MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN YOUR REQUEST: your name, address, phone number; applicant's name and proposed permit number; the location and distance of your property/activities relative to the proposed facility; a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the facility in a way not common to the general public; and, the statement "[I/we] request a contested case hearing." If the request for a contested case hearing is filed on behalf of a group or association, the request must designate the group's representative for receiving future correspondence; identify an individual member of the group who would be adversely affected by the proposed facility or activity; provide the information discussed above regarding the affected member's location and distance from the facility or activity; explain how and why the member would be affected; and explain how the interests the group seeks to protect are germane to the group's purpose.

Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the Executive Director will forward the application and any requests for reconsideration or for a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

The Commission will only grant a contested case hearing on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission's decision on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues that were raised in timely filed comments that were not subsequently withdrawn.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. The Executive Director may issue final approval of the application unless a timely contested case hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed. If a timely hearing request or request for reconsideration is filed, the Executive Director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and request to the TCEQ Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting.

MAILING LIST. If you submit public comments or a request for a contested case hearing or a reconsideration of the Executive Director's decision, you will be added to the mailing list for this specific application to receive future public notices mailed by the Office of the Chief Clerk. In addition, you may request to be placed on: (1) the permanent mailing list for a specific applicant name and permit number; and/or (2) the mailing list for a specific county. If you wish to be placed on the permanent and/or the county mailing list, clearly specify which list(s) and send your request to TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below.

All written public comments and public meeting requests must be submitted to the Office of the Chief Clerk, MC 105, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, TX 78711-3087 or electronically at www.tceq.texas.gov/about/comments.html within 30 days from the date of newspaper publication of this notice or by August 7, 2014, whichever occurs later.

Si desea información en Español, puede llamar 1-800-687-4040. General information about the TCEQ can be found at our web site at www.tceq.texas.gov.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION
FOR AN AIR QUALITY PERMIT

PROPOSED AIR QUALITY PERMIT NUMBERS: 111393 AND PSDTX1368

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Southern Power Company, PO Box 2641, Birmingham, AL 35202-2641, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Proposed Air Quality Permit 111393 and Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Air Quality Permit PSDTX1368, which would authorize construction of the Trinidad Electric Generating Facility located east of Highway 274 and west of Forehand Road, approximately 0.75 miles north of Highway 31, Trinidad, Henderson County, Texas 75163. This application was submitted to the TCEQ on June 27, 2013. The proposed facility will emit the following air contaminants in a significant amount: nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, organic compounds, particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less. In addition, the facility will emit the following air contaminants: sulfur dioxide, ammonia, sulfuric acid, and ammonium sulfate.

The degree of PSD increment predicted to be consumed by the proposed facility and other increment consuming sources in the area is as follows:

PM10
Maximum
Averaging
Time Maximum
Increment
Consumed (µg/m3) Allowable
Increment (µg/m3)
24-hour 5.7 30
PM2.5
Maximum
Averaging
Time Maximum
Increment
Consumed (µg/m3) Allowable
Increment (µg/m3)
24-hour 4.9 9
Annual 0.52 4

The executive director has determined that the emissions of air contaminants from the proposed facility which are subject to PSD review will not violate any state or federal air quality regulations and will not have any significant adverse impact on soils, vegetation, or visibility. All air contaminants have been evaluated, and best available control technology will be used for the control of these contaminants.

The executive director has completed the technical review of the application and prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The permit application, executive director's preliminary decision, draft permit, and the executive director's preliminary determination summary and executive director's air quality analysis, will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ Tyler regional office, and at the Clint W. Murchison Memorial Library, 121 South Prairieville Street, Athens, Henderson County, Texas, beginning the first day of publication of this notice. The facility's compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ Tyler Regional Office, 2916 Teague Dr, Tyler, Texas.

INFORMATION AVAILABLE ONLINE. These documents are accessible through the Commission's Web site at www.tceq.texas.gov/goto/cid: the executive director's preliminary decision which includes the draft permit, the executive director's preliminary determination summary, the air quality analysis, and, once available, the executive director's response to comments and the final decision on this application. Access the Commissioners' Integrated Database (CID) using the above link and enter the permit number for this application. The Clint W. Murchison Memorial Library provides public access to the internet. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For exact location, refer to application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=32.160555&lng=-96.092777&zoom=13&type=r

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting for this application. You may submit public comments on this application or request a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comment or to ask questions about the application. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. The TCEQ will consider all public comments in developing a final decision on the application.

The public meeting will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public is encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the application. However, informal comments made during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered by the TCEQ Commissioners before reaching a decision on the permit and no formal response will be made to the informal comments. During the Formal Comment Period, members of the public may state their formal comments into the official record. A written response to all formal comments will be prepared by the Executive Director and considered by the Commissioners before they reach a decision on the permit. A copy of the response will be sent to each person who submits a formal comment or who requested to be on the mailing list for this application and who provides a mailing address. Only relevant and material issues raised during the formal comment period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted.

The Public Meeting is to be held:
Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm
Trinidad Community Center
111 E. Front Street
Trinidad, Texas 75163

You may submit additional written public comments within 30 days of the date of newspaper publication of this notice in the manner set forth in the AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION paragraph below.

After the deadline for public comment, the executive director will consider the comments and prepare a response to all public comment. The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments or is on a mailing list for this application.

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court. A person who may be affected by emissions of air contaminants from the facility is entitled to request a hearing. A contested case hearing request must include the following: (1) your name (or for a group or association, an official representative), mailing address, daytime phone number, and fax number, if any; (2) applicant's name and permit number; (3) the statement I/we request a contested case hearing; (4) a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the application and air emissions from the facility in a way not common to the general public; (5) the location and distance of your property relative to the facility; and (6) a description of how you use the property which may be impacted by the facility. If the request is made by a group or association, then one or more members who have standing to request a hearing and the interests the group or association seeks to protect must also be identified. You may also submit your proposed adjustments to the application/permit which would satisfy your concerns. Requests for a contested case hearing must be submitted in writing within 30 days following this notice to the Office of the Chief Clerk, at the address provided in the information section below.

A contested case hearing will only be granted based on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission's decisions on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues raised by you or others during the public comment period that have not been withdrawn. Issues that are not raised in public comments may not be considered during a hearing.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. If a timely contested case hearing request is not received or if all timely contested case hearing requests are withdrawn, the executive director may issue final approval of the application. The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments or is on a mailing list for this application, and will be posted electronically to the CID. If any timely hearing requests are received and not withdrawn, the executive director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and requests to the Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled commission meeting.

MAILING LIST. You may ask to be placed on a mailing list to obtain additional information on this application by sending a request to the Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below.

AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION. Public comments and requests must be submitted either electronically at www.tceq.texas.gov/about/comments.html, or in writing to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, Office of the Chief Clerk, MC-105, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087.
