Agenda: Agenda

The Committee will discuss the following requests for rule amendments:

A. Repeal of Historical Racing Rules
The proposal would repeal all of the rules found in Chapter 321, Pari-Mutuel Wagering, Subchapter F, Regulation of Historical Racing Rules. The proposal would also return several previously existing rules to their pre-Historical Racing text.
B. Adjustment of Racetrack License Fees
The proposal would allow racetrack associations that are not currently conducting live or simulcast racing to pay the annual fee in quarterly installments instead of one lump sum.
C. New Provisions relating to Greyhound Breakage
The proposal would provide that 50% of the breakage from wagering at a greyhound association will be retained by the association.
D. Establishing the Length of Greyhound Schooling Races
The proposal will provide that schooling races must be at a distance not less than three-sixteenths of a mile unless otherwise approved by the judges.
E. Addressing the Over-administration of Naturally Occurring Substances
The proposal would amend the definition of “prohibited drugs, chemicals, or other substances” to include any substance present in the race animal in excess of a concentration at which such the substance could occur naturally. This will allow the Commission to address the over-administration of naturally occurring substances such as cobalt.
F. Amendment of Safety Equipment Rules
The proposal would amend the rules relating to safety helmets and safety vests in horse racing to follow ARCI's model rules.
G. Permitting the Waiver of Head Numbers for Quarter Horses, Paint Horses and Appaloosas

CITY OF WIMBERLEY
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-3337
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0482-MWD
Permit No. WQ0013321001

APPLICATION.
City of Wimberley, P.O. Box 2027, Wimberley, Texas 78676, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a major amendment to Permit No. WQ0013321001 to: change the method of disposal from land application to discharge into water in the state; and increase the discharge of treated domestic wastewater from a daily average flow not to exceed 50,000 gallons per day to a daily average flow not to exceed 75,000 gallons per day. The current permit authorizes the disposal of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 15,000 gallons per day via subsurface low pressure dosing drainfields of 94,500 square feet of non-public access land in the interim phase and 50,000 gallons per day via surface irrigation of 19 acres of non-public access land in the final phase.

The facility is located approximately one mile northeast of the intersection of Ranch-to-Market Road 12 and Ranch-to-Market Road 3237 in Hays County, Texas 78676. The existing wastewater treatment facility and disposal site are located approximately 500 feet to the west of the proposed facility within the same property. The treated effluent will be discharged to Deer Creek; thence to the Upper Blanco River in Segment No. 1813 of the Guadalupe River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for Deer Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1813 are exceptional aquatic life use, public water supply, aquifer protection, and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) § 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 1 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 Upper Blanco River, which has been identified as having exceptional aquatic life uses. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the parameters and limitations within which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Wimberley City Hall, Office of the City Secretary, 221 Stillwater, Wimberley, Texas. 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.

The Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision was published on February 5, 2015. On March 31, 2015, the Applicant filed a request for direct referral to the State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH). Therefore, the chief clerk has referred this application directly to SOAH for a hearing on whether the application complies with all applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

INFORMATIONAL ITEMS:

3. Inpatient Hospital Reimbursement.*
The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 4, Rule §355.8052, Inpatient Hospital Reimbursement.

The proposed amendments will allow HHSC to implement targeted inpatient hospital rate increases funded through House Bill 1, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, Article II. Proposed amendments may include increases in the percentages used in determining the trauma add-on amounts for hospitals eligible for an increase to their base standard dollar amount through a trauma add-on. Proposed amendments may also include the implementation of a targeted rate add-on for safety-net hospitals. Increases will be contingent upon the full federal allocation of disproportionate share hospital (DSH) funding (excluding that portion of the allocation associated with state-owned or operated hospitals) being matched by local intergovernmental transfers.

- Laura Skaggs, Coordinator, Hospital Rates and Payments, HHSC

4. Outpatient Hospital Reimbursement.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 4, Rule §355.8061, Outpatient Hospital Reimbursement.

The proposed amendments will allow HHSC to implement increases in, or add-ons to general outpatient reimbursement rates, non-emergent emergency department rates, outpatient hospital imaging services fees and/or outpatient clinical laboratory services fees for hospitals located in a county with 60,000 or fewer persons according to the 2010 U.S. Census, and Medicare-designated Rural Referral Centers (RCC), Sole Community Hospitals (SCH), and Critical Access Hospitals (CAH).

- Laura Skaggs, Coordinator, Hospital Rates and Payments, HHSC

5. Tuberculosis Institution, Chapter 354.*

HHSC proposes to amend Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 10, §354.1121 (relating to Definitions) and Division 11, §354.1149 (relating to Exclusions and Limitations). HHSC also proposes to amend the title of the rule in Division 28, §354.1371 (relating to Benefits and Limitations).

The Social Security Act historically precluded participation in Medicaid by a tuberculosis (TB) institution, but the exclusion was removed. The proposed amendments align Texas Medicaid rules with federal statute by removing the prohibition against paying a TB institution for inpatient services provided through Texas Medicaid. The state of Texas currently has one TB institution, the Texas Center for Infectious Disease (TCID), which is operated by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The proposed change would allow TCID to bill Medicaid for Medicaid-enrolled individuals receiving treatment for TB.

The proposed Draft 2014 Texas Integrated Report Notice was published in the December 19, 2014, issue of the Texas Register (39 TexReg 10073).

RULE MATTERS
Item 29 Docket No. 2014-1223-RUL.
Consideration of adoption of the revisions to 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 37, Financial Assurance, and 30 TAC Chapter 336, Radioactive Substance Rules. This rulemaking adoption implements Senate Bill 347, 83rd Texas Legislature, 2013, Regular Session, by amending 30 TAC Sections 37.9045 and 37.9050, which would reference the new environmental perpetual care account and by amending 30 TAC Sections 336.2, 336.105, 336.1111, and 336.1127, and adopting new Section 336.739, to provide for volume reduction of low-level radioactive waste and to meet federal compatibility standards. The adopted rulemaking also implements changes to license application requirements for source material recovery or by-product disposal licenses regarding notification to landowners. The proposed rules were published in the December 5, 2014, issue of the Texas Register (39 TexReg 9463 and 9484, respectively). (Bobby Janecka, Amie Robinson) (Rule Project No. 2013-056-037-WS)

Item 30 Docket No. 2014-0234-RUL.
Consideration of the adoption of amendments to Sections 101.300 - 101.303, 101.306, 101.309, 101.350 - 101.354, 101.356, 101.359, 101.360, 101.370 - 101.373, 101.376, 101.378, 101.379, 101.390 - 101.394, 101.396, 101.399, and 101.400; and repeal of Section 101.358 of 30 TAC Chapter 101, General Air Quality Rules and corresponding revisions to the state implementation plan (SIP). The adoption would revise the Emission Credit and Discrete Emission Credit Programs by clarifying how reductions are surplus to the SIP; updating for changed federal standards; clarifying provisions for substituting credits from one ozone precursor for another; removing the requirement to submit original certificates for trades and use; clarifying the equations for generating credits; and clarifying that limitations on protocols apply to both generation and use. For the Emission Credit Program, the revisions include extending the deadline for applying to generate credits. For the Discrete Emission Credit Program, the revisions include revising the existing daily use limit for the Dallas-Fort Worth 1997 eight-hour ozone nonattainment area to a fixed value and clarifying that the limit only applies to nitrogen oxides discrete emission reduction credits (DERCs) generated and used in the area. The amendments to the Mass Emissions Cap and Trade (MECT) and Highly Reactive Volatile Organic Compounds Emissions Cap and Trade (HECT) Programs would clarify and add flexibility for the use of allowances as offsets; reduce the reporting requirements for sites that no longer operate affected facilities; require additional allowances when data substitution is used because of noncompliance with requirements; add procedures for changing site and allowance ownership; and revise equations for the allocation of allowances. For the MECT Program, the revisions include providing a deadline for acquiring allowances to cover deficits; removing the equation for data substitution; and clarifying that the use of volatile organic compounds DERCs for MECT compliance must meet the provisions for the inter-pollutant use of DERCs. For the HECT Program, the revisions include correcting an error related to the reporting of emission events; adding deadlines for transfers; and allowing the generation of volatile organic compounds emission reduction credits from HECT sources if allowances are retired. The proposed rules were published in the December 26, 2014, issue of the Texas Register (39 TexReg 10186) (Joe Thomas, Amy Browning) (Rule Project No. 2014-007-101-AI)

Item 31 Docket No. 2014-0501-RUL.
Consideration of the adoption of Sections 115.10, 115.110 - 115.112, 115.114, 115.115, 115.117 - 115.119, 115.121, 115.122, 115.125 - 115.127, 115.129, 115.139, 115.215, 115.219, 115.229, 115.239, 115.359, 115.415, 115.416, 115.419, 115.420 - 115.423, 115.425 - 115.427, 115.429, 115.440 - 115.442, 115.446, 115.449 - 115.451, 115.453, 115.459 - 115.461, 115.469, 115.471, 115.473, 115.479, and 115.519; new Sections 115.410 and 115.411; and the repeal of Section 115.417 of 30 TAC Chapter 115, Control of Air Pollution from Volatile Organic Compounds and corresponding revisions to the state implementation plan. The adopted rulemaking will implement reasonably available control technology (RACT) for all emission sources addressed in a control techniques guidelines (CTG) and all non-CTG major sources of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the 2008 Dallas-Fort Worth eight-hour ozone nonattainment area (Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise Counties) to satisfy Federal Clean Air Act requirements. The adopted rulemaking will revise the VOC rules to expand the applicability of the existing RACT rules to include Wise County. The adopted rulemaking will also make necessary technical corrections and non-substantive revisions. The proposed rules were published in the December 26, 2014, issue of the Texas Register (39 TexReg 10246). (Frances Dowiak, Amy Browning) (Rule Project No. 2013-048-115-AI)

Item 32 Docket No. 2014-0707-RUL.
Consideration of the adoption of revisions to 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 117, Control of Air Pollution from Nitrogen Compounds: amendments to Sections 117.10, 117.400, 117.403, 117.410, 117.423, 117.425, 117.430, 117.435, 117.440, 117.445, 117.450, 117.454, 117.456, 117.1303, 117.1310, 117.1325, 117.1335, 117.1340, 117.1345, 117.1350, 117.1354, 117.8000, 117.9030, 117.9130, 117.9800, and 117.9810; repeal of Sections 117.200, 117.203, 117.205, 117.210, 117.215, 117.223, 117.225, 117.230, 117.235, 117.240, 117.245, 117.252, 117.254, 117.256, 117.1100, 117.1103, 117.1105, 117.1110, 117.1115, 117.1120, 117.1125, 117.1135, 117.1140, 117.1145, 117.1152, 117.1154, 117.1156, 117.9010, and 117.9110; new Sections 117.405 and 117.452; and corresponding revisions to the state implementation plan (SIP). Sections 117.210(c), 117.225, 117.410(d), 117.425, 117.1110(b), 117.1125, 117.1310(b), and 117.1325 correspond to portions of the existing rule previously excluded from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved Texas SIP and will not be submitted with the revision. Adopted new Section 117.405(d) will not be submitted to the EPA as a SIP revision. The adoption would revise Chapter 117 to implement reasonable available control technology (RACT) for all major sources of nitrogen oxides (NOX) in the Dallas-Fort Worth 2008 eight-hour ozone moderate nonattainment area consisting of Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise Counties, as required by Federal Clean Air Act, Section 172(c)(1) and Section 182(f). The adoption would extend implementation of RACT to major sources of NOX located in newly designated Wise County. Although not necessary to satisfy RACT requirements, the adoption would provide compliance flexibility to testing requirements of Chapter 117 for temporary boilers and process heaters, and it would clarify the definition of electric power generating system to distinguish rule requirements for independent power producers located in all Texas ozone nonattainment areas. The proposed rules were published in the December 26, 2014, issue of the Texas Register (39 TexReg 10337). (Javier Galván, Amy Browning) (Rule Project No. 2013-049-117-AI)

Item 33 Docket No. 2013-1381-RUL.
Consideration of the adoption of an amendment to 30 TAC Chapter 331, Underground Injection Control, Subchapter A, General Provisions, Section 331.19, Injection Into or Through the Edwards Aquifer. The adoption would implement Senate Bill 1532, 83rd Texas Legislature, 2013, Regular Session, relating to the authority the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has to authorize certain injection wells that transect or terminate in the Edwards Aquifer. The adopted rulemaking adds definitions and changes the types of injection activities authorized or prohibited in the Edwards Aquifer. The proposed rule was published in the February 6, 2015, issue of the Texas Register (40 TexReg 587). (Kathryn Hoffman, Don Redmond) (Rule Project No. 2013-053-331-WS)

STATE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN MATTERS
Item 34 Docket No. 2014-1249-SIP.
Consideration of the adoption of the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Reasonable Further Progress (RFP) State Implementation Plan (SIP) Revision for the 2008 Eight-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). To meet Federal Clean Air Act requirements, the DFW RFP SIP revision includes an analysis of reasonable further progress toward attainment of the 2008 eight-hour ozone NAAQS. Due to a change in attainment deadlines for the 2008 eight-hour ozone NAAQS by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on December 23, 2014, this SIP revision provides an RFP analysis for a 2017 attainment year, including a contingency plan and a motor vehicle emissions budget (MVEB). This SIP revision also provides an alternative analysis to demonstrate an 18% emissions reduction in ozone precursors from the 2011 base year through a 2018 attainment year, a 3% emissions reduction demonstration for contingency for each milestone year, and updated RFP MVEB for each milestone year in the event that the 2018 attainment year requirement is reinstated by the Court. (Kristin Patton, Terry Salem) (Project No. 2013-014-SIP-NR)

Item 35 Docket No. 2014-1262-SIP.
Consideration of the adoption of revisions to the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Attainment Demonstration State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision to meet the 2008 Eight-Hour Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard. The counties affected include Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, and Wise. Because of a United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit decision that changed the attainment deadlines for the 2008 eight-hour ozone NAAQS after proposal, this SIP revision includes the work completed to date to demonstrate that the DFW area will attain the 2008 eight-hour ozone NAAQS by 2018 as proposed, and to demonstrate progress toward attainment by the new 2017 attainment year. Additionally, this SIP revision includes a commitment to develop a 2017 attainment year SIP revision for the DFW 2008 eight-hour ozone nonattainment area. This SIP revision includes a photochemical modeling analysis, a weight of evidence analysis, a reasonably available control technology (RACT) analysis, and a reasonably available control measures analysis that reflect the previously applicable 2018 attainment year. This SIP revision also incorporates two rulemakings to fulfill RACT requirements for any sources identified in the DFW area that are not already subject to the existing 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapters 115 and 117 rules. (Kathy Singleton, Terry Salem) (Non-rule Project No. 2013-015-SIP-NR)

CITY OF LIBERTY HILL
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-2936
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-1720-MWD
Permit No. WQ0014477001

APPLICATION.
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.

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 the 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 (TAC) § 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 prepared a draft permit which, 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. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 West 8th Street, Georgetown, Texas.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a preliminary hearing on this application at

10:00 a.m. – June 8, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceedings, provide an opportunity for settlement discussions, and address other matters as determined by the administrative law judge. The preliminary hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests are withdrawn or denied. The evidentiary phase of the contested case hearing, to be held at a later date, will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court and will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on March 10, 2015. In addition to these issues, the administrative law judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met.

The contested case hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.

To participate in the contested case hearing as a party, you must attend the preliminary hearing and show you would be affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the preliminary hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate in the contested case hearing.

The overview will include an update on Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) and Uncompensated Care (UC) and managed care.

INFORMATIONAL ITEMS:

5. Payments to Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Providers for Certain Costs Associated with the Affordable Care Act Employer Mandate.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter A, Rule §355.112, Attendant Compensation Rate Enhancement, and Subchapter C, Rule §355.308, Direct Care Staff Rate Component.

The proposed amendments will establish separate rate enhancement pools for certain LTSS providers. These enhancement pools will allow for additional payments to providers for new costs accrued in complying with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Employer Responsibility provisions, which require certain employers to provide health insurance to their full-time employees and their dependents. These additional payments will be subject to spending accountability requirements to ensure that the additional funds are expended as intended.
- Victor Perez, Director, Long Term Services and Supports, HHSC

6. Spending Accountability for the Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with an Intellectual Disability or Related Conditions (ICF/IID) Program.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter D, Rule §355.456, Reimbursement Methodology.

The proposed amendments will establish a system of spending accountability that requires each non-state-owned ICF/IID provider to expend at least 90 percent of funds received through the ICF/IID program's Medicaid payment rates on Medicaid allowable costs under this program. Providers who fail to meet the 90 percent spending requirement would be subject to a recoupment of the difference between the 90 percent spending requirement and their actual expenditures.
- Victor Perez, Director, Long Term Services and Supports, HHSC

7. Spending Accountability for the Home and Community-based Services (HCS) and Texas Home Living (TxHmL) Waiver Programs.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter F, Rule §355.723, Reimbursement Methodology for Home and Community-Based Services and Texas Home Living Programs.

The proposed amendments will establish a system of spending accountability that requires each HCS and TxHmL provider to expend at least 90 percent of funds received through the HCS and TxHmL waiver programs' Medicaid payment rates on Medicaid allowable costs under these programs. Providers who fail to meet the 90 percent spending requirement would be subject to a recoupment of the difference between the 90 percent spending requirement and their actual expenditures.
- Victor Perez, Director, Long Term Services and Supports, HHSC

8. Reimbursement Methodologies for Physicians and Other Practitioners.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 5, Rule §355.8085, Reimbursement Methodology for Physicians and Other Practitioners.

The proposed amendments will allow HHSC to maintain enhanced reimbursement rates for primary care services for certain providers as directed by House Bill 1, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, Article II and to add Peer Support Specialists, dental hygienists, and dental hygiene practitioners as eligible Medicaid providers.
- Ross Keenon, Rate Analyst for Acute Care, HHSC

9. Reimbursement Methodologies for Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) Services.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 23, Rule §355.8441, Reimbursement Methodologies for EPSDT Services.

The proposed amendments will add dental hygienists and dental hygiene practitioners as eligible Medicaid providers.
- Rozsalind Brown, Rate Analyst for Acute Care, HHSC

10. Reimbursement Methodology for Telemedicine, Telehealth, and Home Telemonitoring Services.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter G, Rule §355.7001, Reimbursement Methodology for Telemedicine, Telehealth, and Home Telemonitoring Services.

The proposed amendments will update the Medicaid reimbursement methodology to state that telemedicine, telehealth, and telemonitoring services will be reimbursed under pilot programs and established Medicaid programs for children and/or adults in accordance with program rules and reimbursement methodologies for Telemedicine, Telehealth, and Home Telemonitoring Services including School Health and Related Services.
- Rozsalind Brown, Rate Analyst for Acute Care, HHSC

11. Minimum Payment Amounts to Qualified Nursing Facilities, Chapter 353.*

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) amends Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 353, Subchapter G, §353.608, concerning Minimum Payment Amounts to Qualified Nursing Facilities.

Participation in the nursing facility (NF) minimum payment amounts program (MPAP) is limited to NFs where a non-state governmental entity holds the license and is party to the NF's Medicaid provider enrollment agreement with the State. Due to the lead time required to calculate, adopt, and implement managed care capitation rates, NFs must be identified as qualified MPAP participants significantly prior to the effective date of the capitation rates. For the final MPAP eligibility period (Eligibility Period Two), the list of qualified NFs was required to be finalized by March 15, 2015. To comply with this deadline, §353.608 indicated that, for Eligibility Period Two (September 1, 2015 through August 31, 2016), a NF may be eligible only if its contract was assigned by the Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to a non-state governmental entity by February 28, 2015.

Due to the unprecedented number of change of ownership (CHOW) applications submitted for Eligibility Period Two and the fact that the majority of those applications were incomplete when submitted, there was a large backlog of CHOW applications at DADS. Only a portion of those applications were able to be processed by the February 28, 2015, cut-off date for Eligibility Period Two. Without further action on HHSC's part, NFs whose CHOWs were not processed by February 28, 2015, would not be eligible for the NF MPAP for any part of Eligibility Period Two.

In order to allow these remaining NFs an opportunity to participate in the MPAP for some portion of state fiscal year 2016 while still ensuring that capitation rate calculations are based on a finalized list of participating NFs, HHSC plans to conduct a mid-year capitation rate review for capitation rates to be effective December 1, 2015, and adopts an amendment to §353.608 to add a third eligibility period, Eligibility Period Two-A, to cover-December 1, 2015, through August 31, 2016. Eligibility for Eligibility Period Two-A will be limited to NFs that submitted CHOW applications to DADS by February 1, 2015, that were not processed by the February 28, 2015, cut-off date for Eligibility Period Two because they were incomplete when submitted.
- Pam McDonald, Director, HHSC Rate Analysis

12. Inpatient Hospital Reimbursement.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 4, Rule §355.8052, Inpatient Hospital Reimbursement.

The proposed amendments will allow HHSC to implement targeted inpatient hospital rate increases funded through House Bill 1, 84th Legislature, Regular Session, 2015, Article II. Proposed amendments may include increases in the percentages used in determining the trauma add-on amounts for hospitals eligible for an increase to their base standard dollar amount through a trauma add-on. Proposed amendments may also include the implementation of a targeted rate add-on for safety-net hospitals. Increases will be contingent upon the full federal allocation of disproportionate share hospital (DSH) funding (excluding that portion of the allocation associated with state-owned or operated hospitals) being matched by local intergovernmental transfers.
- Laura Skaggs, Coordinator, Hospital Rates and Payments, HHSC

13. Outpatient Hospital Reimbursement.*

HHSC proposes amendments to Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 4, Rule §355.8061, Outpatient Hospital Reimbursement.

The proposed amendments will allow HHSC to implement increases in, or add-ons to general outpatient reimbursement rates, non-emergent emergency department rates, outpatient hospital imaging services fees, and/or outpatient clinical laboratory services fees for hospitals located in a county with 60,000 or fewer persons according to the 2010 U.S. Census, and Medicare-designated Rural Referral Centers (RCC), Sole Community Hospitals (SCH), and Critical Access Hospitals (CAH).
- Laura Skaggs, Coordinator, Hospital Rates and Payments, HHSC

14. Attendant Minimum Wage Requirements.*

HHSC, on behalf of DADS, proposes amendments to Title 40, Part 1, Chapter 41, Consumer Directed Services Option, and Chapter 49, Contracting for Community Services.

The proposed amendments will increase the required base wage for personal attendants from $7.86 per hour to $8.00 per hour.
- Bill Campbell, Director, Community Services Contracts, Access and Intake, DADS

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULES/ACTION ITEMS:

15. Vision Care Services, Chapter 355.*

HHSC proposes to amend Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 355, Subchapter J, Division 1, §355.8001 (relating to Reimbursement for Vision Care Services).

The proposed amendments correct a cross reference and make other non-substantive language changes. The amendments to this rule are being proposed to coincide with other changes to rules in Chapters 354 and 363 also related to vision care.
- Amy Chandler, Program Specialist, Medicaid/CHIP Policy Development Support, HHSC

16. Vision Care Services, Chapter 354.*

HHSC proposes to repeal Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 2, §§354.1015 (relating to Benefits and Limitations), 354.1017 (relating to Specifications for Eyewear), 354.1021 (relating to Additional Claims Information Requirements), 354.1023 (relating to Optometric Services Provider), and 354.1025 (relating to Competitive Procurement of Vision Care Services).

The proposed amendments simplify rule requirements related to vision care. Simplifying these rules allows HHSC more flexibility in developing timely and evidence-based medical policy. The existing rules provide detailed information on the provision of vision benefits. The current level of detail requires HHSC to amend the rules to implement simple updates and changes to the Texas Medicaid medical policy. The proposed rule amendments will align with legal requirements for the benefits and associated limitations while allowing for flexibility and enhanced timeliness in adopting future changes to medical benefits.
- Laurie VanHoose, Director, Policy Development Support, HHSC

17. Vision Care Services, Chapter 363.*

HHSC proposes to amend Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 363, Subchapter E, §§363.501 (relating to Definitions), 363.502 (relating to Benefits and Limitations), 363.503 (relating to Specifications for Eyewear), and 363.504 (relating to Claims Information Requirements).

The proposed amendments simplify rule requirements related to vision care. Simplifying these rules allows HHSC more flexibility in developing timely and evidence-based medical policy. The existing rules provide detailed information on the provision of vision benefits. The current level of detail requires HHSC to amend the rules to implement simple updates and changes to the Texas Medicaid medical policy. The proposed rule amendments will align with legal requirements for the benefits and associated limitations while allowing for flexibility and enhanced timeliness in adopting future changes to medical benefits.
- Laurie VanHoose, Director, Policy Development, HHSC

18. Exceptional Circumstances, Chapter 354.*

HHSC proposes to amend Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 3, §354.1039 (relating to Home Health Services Benefits and Limitations).

The current rule does not provide clear guidance regarding documentation required to substantiate medical need for durable medical equipment that is not listed in the rule as reimbursable by Medicaid as part of home health services. The amended rule will clarify for a provider the required documentation to substantiate the medical need for durable medical equipment in an "exceptional circumstance." The rule will further clarify that HHSC makes the final decision on whether a client’s condition meets the clinical criteria to qualify for the "exceptional circumstance" provision of this rule.
- Laurie Van Hoose, Director, Policy Development, HHSC

19. Tuberculosis Institution, Chapter 354.*

HHSC proposes to amend Title 1, Part 15, Chapter 354, Subchapter A, Division 10, §354.1121 (relating to Definitions) and Division 11, §354.1149 (relating to Exclusions and Limitations). HHSC also proposes to amend the title of the rule in Division 28, §354.1371 (relating to Benefits and Limitations).

The Social Security Act historically precluded participation in Medicaid by a tuberculosis (TB) institution, but the exclusion was removed. The proposed amendments align Texas Medicaid rules with federal statute by removing the prohibition against paying a TB institution for inpatient services provided through Texas Medicaid. The state of Texas currently has one TB institution, the Texas Center for Infectious Disease (TCID), which is operated by the Department of State Health Services (DSHS). The proposed change would allow TCID to bill Medicaid for Medicaid-enrolled individuals receiving treatment for TB.
- Alex Melis, Policy Analyst, HHSC

20. Nurse Aide Registry and Renewal.*

HHSC, on behalf of DADS, proposes an amendment to Title 40, Part 1, §94.9, concerning Nurse Aide Registry and Renewal. The proposal allows a nurse aide to receive required in-service education from DADS or a healthcare entity (other than a nursing facility or skilled nursing facility) licensed by DADS or the Department of State Health Services or certified by the Board of Nursing.
- Anne Trejo, Manager, NFA Licensing, Licensing & Credentialing Section, Regulatory Services, DADS

21. Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities, Community Living Assistance and Support Services, and Medically Dependent Children Program.*

HHSC, on behalf of DADS, proposes repeals, amendments, and new rules in Title 40, Part 1, Chapters 42, concerning Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD); Chapter 45, concerning Community Living Assistance Support Services (CLASS); and Chapter 51, concerning Medically Dependent Children Program. The proposal aligns rules concerning waiver program interest lists and enrollment with current practice, clarifies how DADS maintains interest lists and makes and withdraws offers of waiver program services, and clarifies DADS' expectation for an individual plan of care (IPC) to be developed using person-centered planning.

The proposal addresses the requirement for program provider membership on an individual’s service planning team; clarifies the requirements and DADS' processes regarding an IPC, DADS' review of an enrollment request, utilization review of an IPC, lapsed diagnostic eligibility, denial of program eligibility or a service, and a service reduction; and requires an intervener and a service provider of employment assistance and supported employment to comply with the DBMD waiver application in Chapter 42, concerning DBMD. The proposal clarifies certain eligibility criteria, the requirements for the CLASS Program services identified in the IPC, and DADS review of an IPC in Chapter 45, concerning CLASS. The proposal deletes the requirement that a primary caregiver's designee, if designated on a backup plan for respite or flexible family support services, must meet the qualifications for an attendant and corrects the requirements for a service provider of employment assistance and supported employment to comply with the MDCP waiver application in Chapter 51, concerning MDCP. The proposal repeals §48.1301, concerning interest lists for certain waiver programs, in Chapter 48, Community Care for Aged and Disabled.

22. Home and Community-based Services and Texas Home Living.*

HHSC, on behalf of DADS, proposes amendments, repeals, and new rules in Title 40, Part 1, Chapter 9, Subchapter D, concerning Home and Community-based Services (HCS) and Subchapter N, concerning Texas Home Living (TxHmL). The proposal aligns rules concerning waiver program interest lists with current practice and clarifies how DADS maintains interest lists and makes and withdraws offers of waiver program services; adds new requirements for a service coordinator and a program provider to participate in service planning team (SPT) meetings and other activities for waiver program applicants 21 years of age or older who reside in, or who are diverted from, a nursing facility; deletes the definition of "non-routine circumstances" and the requirement that respite be provided on a non-routine basis; revises the description of the process to request a reinstatement of a lapsed level of care (LOC) by no longer requiring an HCS provider or for TxHmL, the local authority, to document the begin date of the lapsed period on a DADS form; and requires a service provider of behavioral support to complete training required by DADS.

The proposal implements transition assistance services as a new service; allows certain applicants to receive pre-enrollment minor home modifications (MHMs) and a pre-enrollment MHMs assessment; allows DADS to pay the program provider for providing pre-enrollment MHMs and pre-enrollment MHMs assessments if an applicant does not enroll with the program provider; requires a program provider to ensure a certain water temperature in residential settings; requires the service coordinator, between 60 to 90 calendar days before the expiration of an individual's plan of care, to notify the SPT that the individual's person-directed plan (PDP) must be reviewed and updated and to convene an SPT meeting to review and update the individual's PDP, and within ten calendar days after the PDP is updated, to send a copy to the program provider; clarifies that if DADS grants reinstatement of an LOC determination, the period of reinstatement will be for a period of not more than 180 calendar days after the end date of the previously authorized LOC; and allows DADS after a residential visit to require a program provider to submit evidence of corrective action within a time period determined by DADS, in Subchapter D, concerning HCS.

MORGAN TRUCK BODY LLC
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-3591
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0556-AIR
PERMIT NO. 55089

APPLICATION. Morgan Truck Body LLC, applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for the renewal of Air Quality Permit No. 55089, which would authorize continued operation of the surface coating facilities located at 8051 Morgan Circle, Corsicana, Navarro County, Texas. The existing plant is authorized to emit the following air contaminants: organic compounds and particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING. The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a formal contested case hearing at:

10:00 a.m. – June 10, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The contested case hearing will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. The hearing will be conducted in accordance with the following provisions: Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 382, Texas Health and Safety Code, including § 382.055(g), related to permit renewals; TCEQ rules including 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 116, Subchapters A, B, and D, including 30 TAC 116.314(c); and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.

RELIEF SOUGHT. The TCEQ requests that the Applicant show in a contested case hearing proceeding why the permit should not expire immediately as a result of deficiencies in the air quality permit renewal application listed in the Factual Allegations portion of this notice.

FACTUAL ALLEGATIONS.
Specifically, the air quality permit renewal application submitted by Morgan Truck Body LLC contained the following deficiencies:

1. The renewal application represents new materials which were not authorized in the existing permit; therefore, an amendment application that addresses the new surface coatings is required pursuant to 30 TAC § 116.116(b)(1)(B).

2. The renewal application failed to include a discussion of compliance with the existing permit conditions and applicable regulations pursuant to 30 TAC § 116.311.

If a party to whom a notice of hearing is served or provided fails to appear at the hearing, the judge may proceed in that party’s absence to grant by default the relief sought in the notice. In the proposal for decision, the factual allegations listed in the notice of hearing will be deemed admitted. A default by the applicant may result in the permit expiring immediately.

INFORMATION. If you need more information about the hearing process for this renewal application, please call the Public Education Program toll free at 1 800 687 4040. General information regarding the TCEQ can be found at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.

Persons with disabilities who need special accommodations at the hearing should call the SOAH Docketing Department at 512-475-3445, at least one week prior to the hearing.

NOTICE OF APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION
FOR WATER QUALITY TPDES PERMIT
NEW
PERMIT NO. WQ0015314001

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Randolph Todd Company, LLC, 4807 Spicewood Springs Road, Building 2, Suite 104, Austin, Texas 78759, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0015314001 to authorize the discharge of treated wastewater at a daily average flow of 390,000 gallons per day. The TCEQ received this application on November 6, 2014.

The domestic wastewater treatment facility will be located at 2959 South Cranes Mill Road, New Braunfels, in Comal County, Texas 78132. The treated effluent will be discharged to Dry Comal Creek; thence to Comal River in Segment No. 1811 of the Guadalupe River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for Dry Comal Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1811 are high aquatic life use, public water supply, aquifer protection, and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) § 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 1 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. This review has preliminarily determined that no water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses are present within the stream reach assessed; therefore, no Tier 2 degradation determination is required. No significant degradation of water quality is expected in water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses downstream, and existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

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. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Bulverde/Spring Branch Public Library, 131 Bulverde Crossing, Bulverde, Texas. 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, refer to the application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=29.782332&lng=-98.283048&zoom=13&type=r.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. You may submit public comments about this application. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting on this application because the Executive Director of the TCEQ has determined that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application. The purpose of the public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application.

The public meeting 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 is encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the application and the Executive Director's preliminary decision, but these informal comments made during the informal period will not be considered by the Commissioners before reaching a decision on the permit, and no formal response will be made. During the Formal Comment Period, members of the public may state their formal comments into the official record. A written response to all timely, relevant and material, or significant 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 requests to be on the mailing list for this application and 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 will be held:
Thursday, June 18, 2015, at 7:00 PM
Smithson Valley Middle School Cafeteria
6101 FM311
Spring Branch, Texas 78070

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. After the deadline for submitted public comments, the Executive Director will consider all timely comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. Unless the application is directly referred for a contested case hearing, the response to comments 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 list will also provide instructions for requesting a contested case hearing or reconsideration of the Executive Director’s decision. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a 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 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 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 relevant 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, 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.

TENASKA ROAN’S PRAIRIE PARTNERS, LLC
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-3432
TCEQ Docket No. 2014-1674-IWD
Proposed Permit No. WQ0005111000

APPLICATION.
Tenaska Roan's Prairie Partners, LLC, 14302 FNB Parkway, Omaha, Nebraska 68154, which proposes to operate Tenaska Roan's Prairie Generating Station, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0005111000 to authorize the discharge of evaporative cooler blowdown, previously monitored effluents (low volume waste sources, metal cleaning wastes, chemical metal cleaning wastes, water treatment wastes, and stormwater from internal Outfall 101), and uncontaminated air conditioner and compressor condensate at a daily average flow not to exceed of 105,000 gallons per day.

The facility is located on the south side of State Highway 30, approximately 2.5 miles southwest of the City of Shiro and approximately 1.1 miles east of the intersection of State Highway 30 and State Highway 90, Grimes County, Texas 77876. The effluent is discharged to an unnamed tributary; thence to Flagtail Creek; thence to Lake Creek in Segment No. 1015 of the San Jacinto River Basin. The unclassified receiving waters have minimal aquatic life use for the unnamed tributary and Flagtail Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1015 are high aquatic life use, primary contact recreation, and public water supply.

In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §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 1 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. This review has preliminarily determined that no water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses are present within the stream reach assessed; therefore, no Tier 2 degradation determination is required. No significant degradation of water quality is expected in water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses downstream, and existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, 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. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the Navasota Public Library, 1411 East Washington Avenue, Navasota, Texas. 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 the exact location refer to the application.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a preliminary hearing on this application at:

10:00 a.m. – June 22, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceeding, provide an opportunity for settlement discussions, and address other matters as determined by the administrative law judge. The preliminary hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests are withdrawn or denied. The evidentiary phase of the contested case hearing, to be held at a later date, will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court and will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on April 6, 2015. In addition to these issues, the administrative law judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met. The contested case hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.

To participate in the contested case hearing as a party, you must attend the preliminary hearing and show you would be affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the preliminary hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate in the contested case hearing.

INFORMATION.
If you need more information about the hearing process for this application, please call the Public Education Program, toll free, at 1 800 687 4040. General information about the TCEQ can be found at our web site at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.

Further information may also be obtained from Tenaska Roan's Prairie Partners, LLC at the address stated above or by calling Mr. M. Fred Strauss, P.G. at 402-691-9736.

PULTE HOMES OF TEXAS, L.P.
SOAH Docket No. 582-15-3834
TCEQ Docket No. 2015-0035-MWD
Permit No. WQ0015222001

APPLICATION.
Pulte Homes of Texas, L.P., 16670 Park Row Boulevard, Suite 100, Houston, Texas 77084, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for a new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit No. WQ0015222001 to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 900,000 gallons per day.

The facility will be located 0.5 mile north of the intersection of Stockdick School Road and Porter Road and 0.1 mile to the west of Porter Road in Harris County, Texas 77493. The treated effluent will be discharged to South Mayde Creek; thence to Buffalo Bayou; thence to Buffalo Bayou Above Tidal in Segment No. 1014 of the San Jacinto River Basin. The unclassified receiving water use is minimal aquatic life use for South Mayde Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1014 are limited aquatic life use and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §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 1 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. This review has preliminarily determined that no water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses are present within the stream reach assessed; therefore, no Tier 2 degradation determination is required. No significant degradation of water quality is expected in water bodies with exceptional, high, or intermediate aquatic life uses downstream, and existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, 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. The permit application, Executive Director’s preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at Katy Library, 5414 Franz Road, Katy, Texas. 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, refer to the application.

CONTESTED CASE HEARING.
The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a preliminary hearing on this application at:

10:00 a.m. – June 29, 2015
William P. Clements Building
300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas 78701

The purpose of a preliminary hearing is to establish jurisdiction, name the parties, establish a procedural schedule for the remainder of the proceeding, provide an opportunity for settlement discussions, and address other matters as determined by the administrative law judge. The preliminary hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests are withdrawn or denied. The evidentiary phase of the contested case hearing, to be held at a later date, will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court and will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on May 1, 2015. In addition to these issues, the administrative law judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met. The contested case hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155.

To participate in the contested case hearing as a party, you must attend the preliminary hearing and show you would be affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the preliminary hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate in the contested case hearing.

INFORMATION.
If you need more information about the hearing process for this application, please call the Public Education Program, toll free, at 1 800 687 4040. General information about the TCEQ can be found at our web site at http://www.tceq.texas.gov/.

Further information may also be obtained from Pulte Homes of Texas, L.P., at the address stated above or by calling Mr. Gary Mensik, P.E., LJA Engineering, Inc., at 713-953-5249.

Persons with disabilities who need special accommodations at the hearing should call the SOAH Docketing Department at 512-475-3445, at least one week prior to the hearing.
