CHAPTER 137. COMPLIANCE AND PROFESSIONALISM

SUBCHAPTER A. INDIVIDUAL AND ENGINEER COMPLIANCE

22 TAC §137.19

The Texas Board of Professional Engineers (Board) adopts the repeal of §137.19, concerning Engineers Qualified to be Texas Windstorm Inspectors, without changes to the proposed text as published in the March 10, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 1077) and will not be republished.

The adopted repeal removes rule language that is no longer in effect. This change implements the requirements of House Bill 2439 passed by the 84th Texas Legislature in 2015, which removed the special roster of engineers qualified to be windstorm inspectors.

The Board received no comments for or against the proposed repeal. No changes were made to the rules as proposed.

The repeal is adopted pursuant to Texas Occupations Code §1001.202, which authorizes the Board to make and enforce all rules and regulations and bylaws consistent with the Act as necessary for the performance of its duties, the governance of its own proceedings, and the regulation of the practice of engineering in this state.

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the adoption and found it to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.

Filed with the Office of the Secretary of State on May 30, 2017.
