CPRIT’s Administrative Rulemaking Projects
Administrative rules help to explain how the state agency implements, interprets, or prescribes law or policy. Administrative rules may describe the procedure/practice requirements for a state agency. When CPRIT proposes new administrative rules or changes to existing administrative rules, it must do so through a rulemaking project. The rulemaking project, which is announced in the Texas Register, gives the public advance notice of agency rulemaking proceedings and of the contents of proposed rules so that interested persons may decide whether they wish to comment on the proposal.
At its February 25, 2013 meeting, the Oversight Committee approved proposed changes to the 13 agency rules and three new rules. The changes proposed for Tex. Admin. Code Chapter 702 and 703 rules implement many of the State Auditor’s recommendations concerning ethics, conflicts of interest, grant review and documentation of the agency’s grant processes.
The proposed rule changes and new rules were published in the March 15, 2013 edition of the Texas Register. Public comment was accepted for 30 days following publication. The Oversight Committee expects to consider a final order that reflects the comments received on the proposed rules and any recommended changes at its next meeting.
