Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §171.1011(r), a taxable entity shall not exclude total revenue received from oil produced during the month of August 2017, from a qualified low-producing oil well.

The Comptroller of Public Accounts, administering agency for the collection of the Franchise Tax, has determined, as required by Tax Code, §171.1011(s), that the average closing price of gas for the month of August 2017 is $2.91 per MMBtu. Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §171.1011(r), a taxable entity shall exclude total revenue received from gas produced during the month of August 2017, from a qualified low-producing gas well.

Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision for an Air Quality Permit Proposed Permit Number: 74746L004

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., P.O. Box 1829, Lake City, Florida 32056-1829, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Air Quality Permit Number 74746L004, which would authorize a change of location of a Rock Crusher. The applicant has provided the following directions to the site: at the intersection of Coyote Run and Old Nacogdoches, go north on Coyote Run 0.4 miles and the plant will be located on the east side of the road, Schertz, Comal County, Texas 78132. This application was processed in an expedited manner, as allowed by the commission's rules in 30 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 101, Subchapter J. This application was submitted to the TCEQ on April 24, 2017. The facility will emit the following contaminants: carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, organic compounds, particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less and sulfur dioxide.

The executive director has completed the technical review of the application and 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 to issue the permit because it meets all rules and regulations. The permit application, executive director's preliminary decision, and draft permit will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ San Antonio regional office, and the New Braunfels Public Library, 700 East Common Street, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, beginning the first day of publication of this notice. The facility's compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ San Antonio Regional Office, 14250 Judson Rd., San Antonio, Texas.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting for this application. You may submit public comments on this application or request a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. Please be advised that this public meeting will concurrently provide an opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application for issuance of Air Quality Permit Number 146806L001, which would authorize construction of a Rock Crushing Plant at the same site. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. The TCEQ will consider all public comments in developing a final decision on the application. The public meeting will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public is encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the application. However, informal comments made during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered by the TCEQ Commissioners before reaching a decision on the permit and no formal response will be made to the informal comments. During the Formal Comment Period, members of the public may state their formal comments into the official record. A written response to all formal comments will be prepared by the Executive Director and considered by the Commissioners before they reach a decision on the permit.

The Public Meeting is to be held:

Courtyard New Braunfels River Village

The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application will be mailed to everyone who submitted formal public comments or who requested to be on the mailing list for this application and provides a mailing address. You may submit additional written public comments within 30 days of the date of newspaper publication of this notice in the manner set forth in the AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION paragraph below. Only relevant and material issues raised during the formal comment period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted.

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court. A person who may be affected by emissions of air contaminants from the facility is entitled to request a hearing. A contested case hearing request must include the following: (1) your name (or for a group or association, an official representative), mailing address, daytime phone number; (2) applicant's name and permit number; (3) the statement "I/we request a contested case hearing;" (4) a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the application and air emissions from the facility in a way not common to the general public; (5) the location and distance of your property relative to the facility; (6) a description of how you use the property which may be impacted by the facility; and (7) a list of all disputed issues of fact that you submit during the comment period. If the request is made by a group or association, one or more members who have standing to request a hearing must be identified by name and physical address. The interests the group or association seeks to protect must also be identified. You may also submit your proposed adjustments to the application/permit which would satisfy your concerns. Requests for a contested case hearing must be submitted in writing within 30 days following this notice to the Office of the Chief Clerk, at the address provided in the information section below.

A contested case hearing will only be granted based on disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law that are relevant and material to the Commission's decisions on the application. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. Issues that are not submitted in public comments may not be considered during a hearing.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. A timely hearing request has been received by the TCEQ. However, if all timely contested case hearing requests have been withdrawn and no additional comments are received, the executive director may issue final approval of the application. The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments or is on a mailing list for this application, and will be posted electronically to the Commissioners' Integrated Database (CID). If all timely hearing requests are not withdrawn, the executive director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and requests to the Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled commission meeting.

Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision for an Air Quality Permit Proposed Permit Number: 146806L001

APPLICATION AND PRELIMINARY DECISION. Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., P.O. Box 1829, Lake City, Florida 32056-1829, has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for issuance of Proposed Air Quality Permit Number 146806L001, which would authorize construction of a Rock Crushing Plant. The following directions have been provided by the applicant: from the intersection of Coyote Run and Old Nacogdoches Road go north on Coyote Run approximately 180 feet and the entrance to site is on the east side of Coyote Run, Schertz, Comal County, Texas 78132. This application was processed in an expedited manner, as allowed by the commission's rules in 30 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 101, Subchapter J. This application was submitted to the TCEQ on May 15, 2017. The proposed facility will emit the following contaminants: particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less.

The executive director has completed the technical review of the application and 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 to issue the permit because it meets all rules and regulations. The permit application, executive director's preliminary decision, and draft permit will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ San Antonio regional office, and the New Braunfels Public Library, 700 East Common Street, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, beginning the first day of publication of this notice. The facility's compliance file, if any exists, is available for public review at the TCEQ San Antonio Regional Office, 14250 Judson Road, San Antonio, Texas.

PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING. The TCEQ will hold a public meeting for this application. You may submit public comments on this application or request a contested case hearing to the TCEQ Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application. Please be advised that this public meeting will concurrently provide an opportunity to submit comments or to ask questions about the application for issuance of Air Quality Permit Number 74746L004, which would authorize a change of location of a Rock Crusher at the same site. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. The TCEQ will consider all public comments in developing a final decision on the application. The public meeting will consist of two parts, an Informal Discussion Period and a Formal Comment Period. During the Informal Discussion Period, the public is encouraged to ask questions of the applicant and TCEQ staff concerning the application. However, informal comments made during the Informal Discussion Period will not be considered by the TCEQ Commissioners before reaching a decision on the permit and no formal response will be made to the informal comments. During the Formal Comment Period, members of the public may state their formal comments into the official record. A written response to all formal comments will be prepared by the Executive Director and considered by the Commissioners before they reach a decision on the permit.

The Public Meeting is to be held:

Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at 7:00 p.m.

Courtyard New Braunfels River Village

The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted formal public comments or who requested to be on the mailing list for this application and provides a mailing address. You may submit additional written public comments within 30 days of the date of newspaper publication of this notice in the manner set forth in the AGENCY CONTACTS AND INFORMATION paragraph below. Only relevant and material issues raised during the formal comment period can be considered if a contested case hearing is granted.

OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in a state district court. A person who may be affected by emissions of air contaminants from the facility is entitled to request a hearing. A contested case hearing request must include the following: (1) your name (or for a group or association, an official representative), mailing address, daytime phone number; (2) applicant's name and permit number; (3) the statement "I/we request a contested case hearing;" (4) a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the application and air emissions from the facility in a way not common to the general public; (5) the location and distance of your property relative to the facility; (6) a description of how you use the property which may be impacted by the facility; and (7) a list of all disputed issues of fact that you submit during the comment period. If the request is made by a group or association, one or more members who have standing to request a hearing must be identified by name and physical address. The interests the group or association seeks to protect must also be identified. You may also submit your proposed adjustments to the application/permit which would satisfy your concerns. Requests for a contested case hearing must be submitted in writing within 30 days following this notice to the Office of the Chief Clerk, at the address provided in the information section below.

A contested case hearing will only be granted based on disputed issues of fact or mixed questions of fact and law that are relevant and material to the Commission's decisions on the application. The Commission may only grant a request for a contested case hearing on issues the requestor submitted in their timely comments that were not subsequently withdrawn. Issues that are not submitted in public comments may not be considered during a hearing.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ACTION. A timely hearing request has been received by the TCEQ. However, if all timely contested case hearing requests have been withdrawn and no additional comments are received, the executive director may issue final approval of the application. The response to comments, along with the executive director's decision on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments or is on a mailing list for this application, and will be posted electronically to the Commissioners' Integrated Database (CID). If all timely hearing requests are not withdrawn, the executive director will not issue final approval of the permit and will forward the application and requests to the Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled commission meeting.

INFORMATION AVAILABLE ONLINE. When they become available, the executive director's response to comments and the final decision on this application will be accessible through the Commission's Web site at www.tceq.texas.gov/goto/cid.
