The Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (Board) has completed the review of Texas Administrative Code, Title 31, Part 17, Chapter 518, Subchapter B, General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program, as required by the Texas Government Code §2001.039, Agency Review of Existing Rules. These rules were published for comment in the December 15, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 7172). The text of this rule may be found in the Texas Administrative Code, Title 31, Part 17, Chapter 518, Subchapter B, General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program, or through the Board's website at www.tsswcb.texas.gov/about/agency-rules.

Texas Government Code §2001.039 requires that each state agency review and re-adopt, re-adopt with amendments, or repeal the rules adopted by that agency under Texas Government Code, chapter 2001, subchapter B, Rulemaking. As required by §2001.039(e), this review is to assess whether the reasons for adopting or re-adopting the Board's General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program rule continues to exist. The Board requested specific comments from interested persons on whether the reasons for adopting Chapter 518, Subchapter B continues to exist. In addition, the Board welcomed comments on any modifications that would improve the rule. The Board's Chapter 518, Subchapter B rule adopts by reference the rules of the Comptroller of Public Accounts in 34 TAC Part 1, Chapter 20, Subchapter B (relating to Historically Underutilized Business Program).

The Board received no comments in response to its request for comment published in the December 15, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 7172). After internal review, the Board determined that the rule effectively allows the Board to accomplish its functions as directed by the Legislature.

The Board finds that the reasons for adopting Texas Administrative Code, Title 31, Part 17, Chapter 518, Subchapter B, General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program, continue to exist and re-adopts the rule without amendments. The rule adopts by reference the rules of the Comptroller of Public Accounts in 34 TAC Part 1, Chapter 20, Subchapter B (relating to Historically Underutilized Business Program). Therefore, the Board re-adopts Chapter 518, Subchapter B, General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program, in its entirety, under authority granted in Texas Agricultural Code §201.020(a) and §203.012, which authorize the Board to adopt and enforce rules necessary for the performance of its functions as well as Texas Government Code §2001.039, which requires each state agency to review and re-adopt its rules every four years.

The Board hereby certifies that the rule in Chapter 518, Subchapter B, General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program as re-adopted; has been reviewed by legal counsel and found to be a valid exercise of the Board's legal authority. It is therefore ordered by the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board that Chapter 518, Subchapter B, General Procedures, Historically Underutilized Business Program, is hereby re-adopted under Texas Government Code §2001.039 with no changes and this ends the review of this chapter.
