TxDOT solicited comments for potential revisions to department rules in Title 43 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 16 involving transportation planning, programming, funding, and reporting. The deadline for comment submission was March 20, 2012.
Based on the requirements of Senate Bill 1420 passed by the 82nd Legislature, 2011, and the need to provide more clarity and flexibility, the department has drafted proposed amendments to the rules. Those amendments, if adopted in a format similar to the latest draft, will make changes in all five subchapters of Chapter 16. Please see the Texas Register Notice and Chapter 16 - Draft Revisions links below.
The department sought both general ideas and specific language suggestions. Comments on specific text changes were encouraged to include appropriate citations to sections, subsections, paragraphs, etc. of the draft rules for proper reference.
