Notice of the Implementation of a 2017 Qualified Mortgage Credit Certificate Program by Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation

The Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation (the "Corporation"), a nonprofit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Texas (the "Program Area"), is implementing a qualified mortgage credit certificate program (the "Program") within the Program Area to assist eligible purchasers. A Mortgage Credit Certificate ("MCC") is an instrument designed to assist persons better afford home ownership. The MCC Program allows first-time homebuyers an annual federal income tax credit equal to the lesser of $2,000 or the credit rate for the MCC multiplied by the amount of interest paid by the holder on a home mortgage loan during each year that they occupy the home as their principal residence.

An eligible purchaser of a residence located within the Program Area may apply to the Corporation for an MCC through a participating lender of his or her choice at the time of purchasing a principal residence and obtaining a mortgage loan from a participating lender.

To be an eligible purchaser to receive an MCC, a purchaser must meet the following criteria:

1. Be one of the following:

a. A person living in Texas whose annual household income does not exceed 100% of AMFI (for families of two persons or less) or 115% of AMFI (for families of three or more persons); or

b. A full-time Texas classroom teacher, teacher’s aide, school librarian, school nurse, school counselor, or an allied health or nursing faculty member whose annual family income does not exceed 100% of AMFI (for families of two persons or less) or 115% of AMFI (for families of three or more persons); or

c. A full-time paid fire fighter, peace officer, corrections officer, juvenile corrections officer, county jailer, EMS personnel, veteran, or public security officer, working in the State of Texas whose annual family income does not exceed 100% of AMFI (for families of two persons or less) or 115% of AMFI (for families of three or more persons).

Visit www.tsahc.org for a more complete description of the maximum income limits.

2. The applicant for the MCC cannot have had an ownership interest in his or her principal residence during the three-year period ending on the date the mortgage loan is obtained.

3. The applicant must intend to occupy the residence with respect to which the MCC is obtained as his or her principal residence within 60 days after the MCC is issued. The MCC issued to an applicant will be revoked if the residence to which the MCC relates ceases to be occupied by the applicant as his or her principal residence.

4. The MCC cannot be issued to an applicant in conjunction with the replacement or refinancing of an existing mortgage loan. The MCC can, however, be obtained in conjunction with the replacement of a construction period or bridge loan having a term of less than 24 months.

5. Federal law imposes limitations on the purchase price of homes financed under the program. These limitations are periodically adjusted. Visit www.tsahc.org to view the current maximum purchase prices allowed. Two-family, three-family and four-family residences are also eligible, provided that one of the units will be occupied by the mortgagor as his or her principal residence and that the residence was first occupied for residential purposes at least five years prior to the closing of the mortgage.

Anyone receiving an MCC and selling his or her residence within nine years of the issuance of the MCC may be required to return all or a portion of the tax credit received in connection therewith to the Internal Revenue Service.

To defray the costs of implementing the Program, the Corporation will charge applicants a compliance fee, plus an MCC issuance fee.

The Corporation strongly encourages anyone who believes that he or she qualifies for an MCC to apply at the offices of a participating lender. For more information regarding the Program and its restrictions, including a list of current participating lenders, please contact Joniel Crim, Homeownership Programs Director, at (512) 477-3561 or by email at jcrim@tsahc.org.

Notice of Hearing

Dowdell Public Utility District

SOAH Docket No. 582-17-4591

TCEQ Docket No. 2017-0436-MWD

Permit No. WQ0011404002

APPLICATION.

Dowdell Public Utility District, c/o Smith, Murdaugh, Little & Bonham, L.L.P., 2727 Allen Parkway, Suite 1100, Houston, Texas 77019, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for new Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. WQ0011404002, to authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater at a daily average flow not to exceed 900,000 gallons per day. TCEQ received this application on May 29, 2015.

The facility will be located west of Lozar Drive, approximately 750 feet northwest of the intersection of Lozar Drive and Avalon Aqua Way, in Harris County, Texas 77379. The treated effluent will be discharged to a detention pond system; thence to a 48-inch storm sewer pipe; thence to Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) ditch M114-00-00; thence to Willow Creek; thence to Spring Creek in Segment No. 1008 of the San Jacinto River Basin. The unclassified receiving water uses are minimal aquatic life use for the detention pond system, limited aquatic life use for HCFCD ditch M114-00-00, and high aquatic life use for Willow Creek. The designated uses for Segment No. 1008 are high aquatic life use, public water supply, and primary contact recreation. In accordance with 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Section 307.5 and the TCEQ implementation procedures (June 2010) for the Texas Surface Water Quality Standards, an antidegradation review of the receiving waters was performed. A Tier 1 antidegradation review has preliminarily determined that existing water quality uses will not be impaired by this permit action. Numerical and narrative criteria to protect existing uses will be maintained. A Tier 2 review has preliminarily determined that no significant degradation of water quality is expected in Willow Creek, which has been identified as having high aquatic life use. Existing uses will be maintained and protected. The preliminary determination can be reexamined and may be modified if new information is received.

The TCEQ Executive Director has prepared a draft permit which, if approved, would establish the conditions under which the facility must operate. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this permit, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The permit application, Executive Director's preliminary decision, and draft permit are available for viewing and copying at the HarrisCounty Public Library, Barbara Bush Branch Library at Cypress Creek Branch, 6817 Cypresswood Drive, Spring, Texas. As a public courtesy, we have provided the following Web page to an online map of the site or the facility's general location. The online map is not part of the application or the notice:

<http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/hb610/index.html?lat=30.0796&lng=-95.5377&zoom=13&type=r>. For the exact location, refer to the application.

The State Office of Administrative Hearings (SOAH) will conduct a formal contested case hearing at:

10:00 a.m. - August 28, 2017

William P. Clements Building

300 West 15th Street, 4th Floor

Austin, Texas 78701

The contested case hearing will be a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. The hearing will address the disputed issues of fact identified in the TCEQ order concerning this application issued on May 18, 2017. In addition to these issues, the judge may consider additional issues if certain factors are met.

The hearing will be conducted in accordance with Chapter 2001, Texas Government Code; Chapter 26, Texas Water Code; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ and SOAH, including 30 TAC Chapter 80 and 1 TAC Chapter 155. The hearing will be held unless all timely hearing requests have been withdrawn or denied.

To request to be a party, you must attend the hearing and show you would be adversely affected by the application in a way not common to members of the general public. Any person may attend the hearing and request to be a party. Only persons named as parties may participate at the hearing.

In accordance with 1 Tex. Admin. Code §155.401(a), Notice of Hearing, "Parties that are not represented by an attorney may obtain information regarding contested case hearings on the public website of the State Office of Administrative Hearings at www.soah.texas.gov, or in printed format upon request to SOAH."

Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation

Public Notice - Enforcement Plan

The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation (Commission) provides this public notice that at their regularly scheduled meeting held June 16, 2017, the Commission adopted the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation's (Department) revised enforcement plan which was established in compliance with Texas Occupations Code, §51.302(c).

The enforcement plan gives all license holders notice of the specific ranges of penalties and license sanctions that apply to specific alleged violations of the statutes and rules enforced by the Department. The enforcement plan also presents the criteria that are considered by the Department's Enforcement staff in determining the amount of a proposed administrative penalty or the magnitude of a proposed sanction. The enforcement plan is revised to include the penalty matrix for the Dietitians program.

The Texas Legislature enacted Senate Bill 202 (SB 202), 84th Legislature, Regular Session (2015), which transferred regulatory authority of 13 programs, to include Dietitians from the Texas Department of State Health Services to the Commission and Department. The Dietitians penalty matrix provides for a single range of penalties for each class to eliminate confusion and allow the industry to fully understand the penalties assessed. The penalty matrix describes the specific ranges of penalties and license sanctions that apply to specific violations of the statutes and rules enforced by the Department. This penalty matrix may differ slightly from others as the agency focuses on aligning strategic plan goals with agency resources.

The Advisory Board of Dietitians recommended approval of the penalty matrix at their meeting held May 18, 2017. The penalty matrix was presented to the Commission on June 16, 2017, and was adopted as recommended.

A copy of the revised enforcement plan is posted on the Department's website and may be downloaded at www.tdlr.texas.gov. You may also contact the Enforcement Division at (512) 539-5600 or by e-mail at enforcement@tdlr.texas.gov to obtain a copy of the revised plan.
