About the Tier II Program Transfer
Effective Sept. 1, 2015, Tier II Chemical Reporting Program moved to the TCEQ from the Department of State Health Services.
House Bill 942 was passed during the 84th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, and signed into law by the Governor. The bill requires the transfer of the duties authorized by Health and Safety Codes 505, 506, and 507 (Community Right-to-Know Acts or Tier II Program) from DSHS to the TCEQ.
