Prior to the Board’s adoption of a Rule or the revision of an existing Rule, the Board’s proposal is published in the Texas Register. The Texas Register publication contains the complete text of the Rule along with an invitation to the public to comment on it. Persons wishing to comment will have at least 30 days to do so. Following the comment period, the Board considers the proposed Rule along with the public’s comments. If the Board adopts the Rule without substantial changes, it then files the Rule with the Secretary of State’s Office and the Rule is published as adopted in the Texas Register. The Rule becomes effective 20 days after it’s filing with the Secretary of State’s Office.
