Chapter 116 Rulemaking Advisory Group - Dissolved

This dissolved group page provided meeting schedules, agendas, and minutes for this open-participation group formed to receive comments and suggestions for new and revised rules in Chapter 116 of 30 TAC, which dealt with air permits for new or modified sources.

The Chapter 116 Rulemaking Advisory Group was a voluntary group that offered suggestions about pending changes to state rules that would incorporate federal requirements for air permits.

About This Advisory Group

The draft rules reviewed by the Chapter 116 Rulemaking Advisory Group pertained to air permits for new or modified sources. These draft rules addressed:

  • requirement to certify emission reductions under the banking and trading rules in 30 TAC Chapter 101 prior to the use as offsets;
  • establishment of a deadline for certifying and banking credit of reductions to be used as offsets;
  • removal of administrative voidance and codifying results following the actual voidance of permit applications;
  • TCEQ actions in the event of non-payment of permit application fees;
  • conditions for partial refund of fees;
  • narrowly defined conditions that could result in additional extensions of the time between permit issuance and the commencement of construction;
  • and establishment of a time period for the submission of permit renewals and fee assessment.
