Texas Register Preamble

The Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners (Board) proposes amendments to §365.1, which pertain to the license, endorsement, and registration categories and the scope of work permitted.

Background and Justification

The proposed changes to §365.1 define what plumbing work a Journeyman or Master Plumber who holds a Water Supply Protection Specialist endorsement is permitted to perform.

Fiscal Note

Lisa Hill, Executive Director, has determined that for the first five-year period the amendments are in effect, there will be no additional cost to state or local governments as a result of enforcing or administering the amended section. Ms. Hill has determined that there will be no economic cost to individuals who would otherwise be subject to this rule. Ms. Hill has also determined there will be no measurable effect on small businesses and micro businesses. There is no anticipated difference in effect between small and large businesses.

Public Benefit

Ms. Hill has concluded that for each year of the first five years the amendments are in effect, the anticipated public benefit will be a more clear and precise rule.

Public Comment

The Board invites comments on the proposed amendments from any member of the public. Written comments should be mailed to Lisa Hill, Executive Director, at P.O. Box 4200, Austin, Texas 78765-4200; faxed to her attention at (512) 450-0637; or sent by email to info@tsbpe.state.tx.us.

Statutory Authority

The amendments to §365.1 are proposed under and affect Chapter 1301 of the Texas Occupations Code (Plumbing License Law). Plumbing License Law §1301.251 requires the Board to adopt and enforce rules necessary to administer the Plumbing License Law.

No other statute, article, or code is affected by the proposed amendments.
