Project Amount. Approximately $4 million is available for funding the 2017-2018 Transformation Zone Planning Grant. It is anticipated that approximately 8 grants will be awarded ranging in amounts from $250,000 to $450,000. This project is funded 100 percent with federal funds.

State Board for Educator Certification

Correction of Error

The Texas Education Agency filed on behalf of the State Board for Educator Certification a proposed amendment to 19 TAC §232.11, Number and Content of Required Continuing Professional Education Hours, which was published in the September 1, 2017, issue of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 4425).

Due to error by the Texas Education Agency, the following sentences included the word "require":

In the fourth paragraph of the preamble, the sentence that begins, "These changes would require CPE activities regarding digital learning, digital teaching, and integrating technology…."

In the fifth paragraph of the preamble, the sentence that begins, "This new subsection would require CPE activities regarding understanding appropriate relationships, boundaries, and communications…" and the last sentence in the paragraph that begins, "This new subsection would require CPE activities regarding preventing, recognizing, and reporting sexual conduct between an educator and student…."

In each of those three sentences, the word "require" should be changed to "allow" to accurately describe the rule changes approved by the State Board for Educator Certification at its August 4, 2017, meeting.

Revised Notice of Minor Amendment Radioactive Material License Number R04100

APPLICATION: Waste Control Specialists LLC (WCS) applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for minor amendment to Radioactive Material License R04100, received October 24, 2016, and a supplement, received February 13, 2017, to make clarifying additions, changes and general updates to the license including minor changes intended to improve operational effectiveness, remove obsolete conditions, provide corrections, authorize construction of the Rail Tipper Building to receive bulk Class A waste and changes to the drainage system and extend the storage time of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) waste. A replacement, dated May 26, 2017, to the February 13, 2017, supplement was received which contained the same license amendment request as the February 13, 2017, supplement. An application, dated July 25, 2017, was received that completely replaced the October 24, 2016 application, the February 13, 2017, supplement and the May 26, 2017, supplement and which contains the same information and amendment requests, as well as the correspondences concerning the prior submissions, found in the replaced documents. An email dated August 15, 2017, was received from WCS which requested a modification to license condition 119 so that entry into a contamination area, instead of into a restricted area, triggers the whole body count requirement. This amendment also includes modifications to some of the license conditions due to decision by the Executive Director to clarify licensing requirements, remove obsolete license conditions, add some reporting and notification requirements, and to allow a "qualified TCEQ staff" to inspect waste shipments and manifests.

Radioactive Material License R04100 authorizes commercial disposal of low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) and storage and processing of radioactive waste. WCS currently conducts a variety of waste management services at its site in Andrews County, Texas and is the licensed operator of the Compact Waste Disposal Facility (CWF) and the Federal Waste Disposal Facility (FWF) for commercial and federal LLRW disposal. The land disposal facility and the storage and processing facility are located at 9998 State Highway 176 West in Andrews County, Texas.

The Executive Director has determined that a minor amendment to the license is appropriate because the amendment application does not pose a detrimental impact and is in consideration of maintaining public health and safety, worker safety, and environmental health. The license will be amended to clarify, update and provide corrections to several license conditions, remove Attachment D (requirements pertain to the pavement design) since it is obsolete, authorize certain drainage system design and durability improvements, change the date of the month when the monthly site receipt and disposal activities report is due, extend the possession time of the LANL waste by two years, include the FWF into the Waste Acceptance Criteria, add authorization to build the Rail Tipper Building for receiving and unloading bulk Class A waste with the provision that the licensee cannot begin operations of this facility until the Executive Director has approved the operational procedures, change the due date for the performance assessment update, remove the five visitor limit that may be escorted by a single trained WCS staff member, replace the table listing the required frequency of surveys with a reference to procedures RSP-100 and RS-3.2.4 which also have these frequency requirements, reduce the inspection frequency of the CPC compactor from daily to prior to use, change the focus of the sum of fractions rules and its point of compliance to the container level rather than the waste profile level for license condition (LC) 192 which authorizes WCS to exempt low activity waste for disposal in its Resource Conservation and Recovery Act disposal facility, change the notification frequency for tier I and II low activity waste exempted under LC 192 from each shipment to a quarterly basis, and require a whole body count for entry into a contamination area instead of entry into a restricted area. Some license conditions have been removed by the Executive Director since they are obsolete, additional wording was added that the licensee should retain records for inspection as required by the provisions of 30 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Chapter 336, require the licensee to submit a quarterly summary of fee payments paid to the state, added chewing to the list of prohibited activities in the area where radioactive material is handled, transferred, processed or disposed, require the licensee to notify the agency as soon as practicable upon knowledge of a possible exceedance of an action or analytical decision level, and to allow a "qualified TCEQ staff" to inspect waste shipments and manifest.

The following webpage which provides an electronic map of the facility's general location is provided as a public courtesy and is not part of the notice: www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public=. For an exact location, refer to the application.

The TCEQ Executive Director has completed the technical review of the amendment and supporting documents and has prepared a draft license. The draft license, if approved, would refine and add detail to the conditions under which the land disposal facility and the storage and processing facility must operate with regard to existing authorized receipt of wastes and does not change the type or concentration limits of wastes to be received. The Executive Director has made a preliminary decision that this license, if issued, meets all statutory and regulatory requirements. The license amendment, the Executive Director's technical summary, and the amended draft license are available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ's central office in Austin, Texas and at the Andrews Public Library in Andrews, Texas.

Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs

Notice of Public Comment Period for a Draft Amendment of the 2017 State of Texas Consolidated Plan: One-Year Action Plan

The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs ("TDHCA") announces the opening of a public comment period on a Draft Amendment of the 2017 State of Texas Consolidated Plan: One-Year Action Plan ("the Plan"). The public comment period will be open from September 8, 2017, through October 8, 2017.

Please visit the TDHCA Public Comment Center at http://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/public-comment.htm to access the Plan. A hard copy can be requested by contacting the Housing Resource Center at P.O. Box 13941, Austin, TX 78711-3941 or by calling (512) 475-3976.

Written comments on the Plan may be submitted by mail to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, Housing Resource Center, P.O. Box 13941, Austin, TX 78711-3941; by email to info@tdhca.state.tx.us; or by fax to (512) 475-0070. Comments must be received no later than October 8, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. Austin local time.

TDHCA, Texas Department of Agriculture ("TDA"), and Texas Department of State Health Services ("DSHS") prepared the 2017 State of Texas Consolidated Plan: One-Year Action Plan ("Plan") in accordance with 24 CFR §91.320. TDHCA coordinates the preparation of the State of Texas Consolidated Plan documents. The Plan covers the State's administration of the Community Development Block Grant Program ("CDBG") by TDA, the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program ("HOPWA") by DSHS, the Emergency Solutions Grant ("ESG") Program, the HOME Investment Partnerships ("HOME") Program, and the National Housing Trust Fund ("NHTF") Program by TDHCA.

The Plan reflects the intended uses of funds received by the State of Texas from HUD for Program Year 2017. The Program Year begins on February 1, 2017, and ends on January 31, 2018. The Plan also illustrates the State's strategies in addressing the priority needs and specific goals and objectives identified in the 2015-2019 State of Texas Consolidated Plan. The Plan was approved for submission to HUD at the Board meeting of June 29, 2017, submitted to HUD on July 19, 2017.

In July 2015, HUD published a Final Rule at 24 CFR Part 5 regarding the State's obligation to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing ("AFFH"). Under this Final Rule, the citizen participation requirements in 24 CFR §91.115 have been revised accordingly to support the development of the Assessment of Fair Housing ("AFH"), which is anticipated to replace the Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice ("AI"). According to HUD, the AFH planning process will help communities analyze challenges to fair housing choice and establish their own goals and priorities to address the fair housing barriers in their community. The revisions to 24 CFR §91.115 require the State to amend its citizen participation requirements, which are documented in the Plan. The Draft Amendment of the Plan incorporates the revised citizen participation requirements in accordance with 24 CFR §91.115.

When paying a prize of $600 or more, the Texas Lottery shall file the appropriate income reporting form with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and shall withhold federal income tax at a rate set by the IRS if required. In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

In the event that the claim is not validated by the Texas Lottery, the claim shall be denied and the claimant shall be notified promptly.

D. Prior to payment by the Texas Lottery of any prize, the Texas Lottery shall deduct:

a. delinquent in the payment of a tax or other money to a state agency and that delinquency is reported to the Comptroller under Government Code §403.055;

b. in default on a loan made under Chapter 52, Education Code; or

c. in default on a loan guaranteed under Chapter 57, Education Code; and

2.5 Payment of Prizes to Persons Under 18. If a person under the age of 18 years is entitled to a cash prize under $600 from the "DIAMOND MINE 9X" Scratch Ticket Game, the Texas Lottery shall deliver to an adult member of the minor's family or the minor's guardian a check or warrant in the amount of the prize payable to the order of the minor.

Notwithstanding any name or names submitted on a claim form, the Executive Director shall make payment to the player whose signature appears on the back of the Scratch Ticket in the space designated. If more than one name appears on the back of the Scratch Ticket, the Executive Director will require that one of those players whose name appears thereon be designated by such players to receive payment.
