Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Innovative Adult Career Education Grant Program Administrator proposes new 19 TAC §§400.1 - 400.7, concerning grant administration. House Bill 437 (83rd Legislature, Regular Session) created the Texas Innovative Adult Career Education Grant Program, and Austin Community College has been appointed as the administrator of the program. Education Code, §136.007, requires that the program administrator adopt rules in order to administer the program.

Catherine Brown Fryer, counsel for Austin Community College, has determined that for the first five-year period these rules are in effect, there will be no fiscal impact for state or local government.

Ms. Fryer has also determined that for each year of the first five years the rules are in effect the public benefit anticipated as a result of enforcement of the rules will be to provide state funds in support of programs that prepare low-income students to enter careers in high-demand, high-wage occupations. There will be no cost to individuals or small businesses as a result of the rules.

Comments on the proposed new rules may be submitted to Ben Ferrell, Executive Vice President, Finance and Administration, Austin Community College, 9191 Tuscany Way, Austin, Texas 78754. The deadline for all comments is 30 days after publication in the Texas Register.

The Texas Innovative Adult Career Education Grant Program Administrator proposes the new sections pursuant to Education Code, Chapter 136.

This proposal does not affect any other statutes, articles, or codes.
