TITLE 37. PUBLIC SAFETY AND CORRECTIONS

PART 1. TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

CHAPTER 13. CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES

SUBCHAPTER G. FORFEITURE AND DESTRUCTION

37 TAC §13.151

The Texas Department of Public Safety (the department) adopts amendments to §13.151, concerning Subchapter Definitions. This section is adopted without changes to the proposed text as published in the February 3, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 411) and will not be republished.

Amendments to §13.151 are necessary to ensure compliance with §13.157(d) concerning the modification of the definition of "excess quantity". Further modification has been necessary due to physical storage limitations and the need for continued and improved controlled substance diversion control.

No comments were received regarding the adoption of these amendments.

The amendments are adopted pursuant to Texas Health and Safety Code, §481.003, which authorizes the director to adopt rules to administer and enforce Chapter 481, §481.153 and §481.154.

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 March 10, 2017.
