Pending Rule Adoptions
PENDING ADOPTIONS are staff recommendations that have been filed with the Chief Clerk, but have not yet been voted on by the commissioners. At a future date, the commissioners will discuss and either vote to adopt, continue the adoption to a future date, remand the adoption back to staff for revisions, or withdraw the rule package as proposed. If approved, the adoption will be filed with the Texas Register and moved to Adoptions. These drafts are courtesy copies and are subject to change. This site will be updated only if the agency makes substantive changes before the agenda date.

Emissions Inventory and General Definitions Update
This rulemaking would lower the lead emissions reporting threshold to 0.5 tons per year for point source in §101.10 to align with reporting requirements in the AERR, in 40 CFR §51.100(s), change the §101.10 rule applicability distance for sites from the shoreline to nine nautical miles from 25 miles for consistency with other state regulations, and exclude certain organic compounds from regulation as a VOC in §101.1. Other proposed changes codify existing business processes and clarify the emissions inventory requirements. If adopted, the revised rules would be submitted to the EPA as revisions to the SIP.
