Texas Workforce Commission
Rule Review Plan - Revised

In accordance with the Appropriations Act, §167, the Texas Workforce Commission (Commission) filed a rule review plan on February 9, 1998. The purpose of this filing is to submit a revised rule review plan, which reflects that some rule reviews were completed ahead of schedule, including the review of rules as follows: Chapter 807, relating to Proprietary Schools; Chapter 809, relating to Child Care and Development; and Chapter 813, relating to Food Stamps, Employment & Training.

The revised rule review plan also reflects the rescheduled review of the following: (1) Chapter 805 because the Jobs Training Partnership Act, which was repealed by Congress and replaced with the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, may be repealed in whole by July 2001; (2) Chapter 809 because the rules were reviewed, in January 1999, prior to the scheduled review period to implement the changes necessitated by management, oversight, and delivery of Child Care by the local workforce development boards (Boards); and (3) Chapter 815 because an extended review is necessary to incorporate the repeal and readoption of the rules. The revised plan also reflects the anticipated early review of Chapter 800 Subchapter B relating to Allocations and Funding, and Chapter 800 Subchapter C relating to Charges for Copies of Public Records.
