The 83rd regular session of the Texas Legislature resulted in several bills that require changes to Occupational Licensing rules in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 30, Subchapter A. The proposed changes to current rules will enable the commission to incorporate the statutory changes by:

  • excluding Class C misdemeanor convictions when reviewing applications for an occupational license (House Bill 798)
  • requiring an individual with an occupational license to be supervised in certain circumstances, if registered as a sex offender (HB 1302)
  • considering an individual with a dismissal to have a conviction if registered as a sex offender (HB 1659)
  • suspending or refusing the application of an individual who has not made a minimum payment of child support (HB 1846)
  • recognizing military service and veteran status when considering occupational licensing applications, and expediting occupational licensing applications from military spouses (Senate Bill 162).

 Additional amendments to 30 TAC 30, Subchapter A, will enable the commission to:

  • remove citations that no longer pertain to occupational licenses (30.5)
  • transfer rule-imposed deadlines to policy (30.14, 30.18, 30.24);
  • make wait times for examinations uniform (30.20)
  • clarify the validity period for examinations (30.20)
  • incorporate new training technology (30.7, 30.28)
  • establish a fee for review of new training technology (30.28)
  • provide consistency between subchapters (30.30)
  • improve readability of rules (30.36)
