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.
