PROPOSALS are rules that have been approved by the commissioners to be published in the Texas Register for public comment. The public comment period usually lasts for 30 days after the publication date. After the public comment period has closed, staff evaluates all comments and makes appropriate changes to the proposed rule. The draft adoption is then filed with the Chief Clerk and moved to Pending Adoptions.
