Public Hearing - Revisions to Administrative Rules, Chapter 2, Environmental Policy
Where: Texas Department of Transportation
200 East Riverside Drive
Room 1A.1
Austin, TX 78701

When: Monday, Jan. 9, 2012
10:00 a.m
Purpose: To receive public comments concerning rule revisions to 43 TAC Chapter 2.

Description:

The 82nd Texas Legislature, in passing Senate Bill 548, Senate Bill 1420 and House Bill 630, enacted Transportation Code, Chapter 201, Subchapter I-1, setting forth new requirements for the environmental review of highway projects, and requiring the department to adopt rules implementing Subchapter I-1.

These same three bills also enacted Transportation Code, §222.006, Environmental Review Certification Process, requiring the department to, by rule, establish a process to certify department district environmental specialists who work on documents related to the environmental review process.

This proposed rulemaking implements the recent legislation, and makes other substantive and non-substantive changes to the department's existing environmental review rules intended to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the environmental review process for transportation projects.
