Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts amendments to 22 TAC §541.1, Criminal Offense Guidelines; and §541.2, Criminal History Evaluation Letters, in Chapter 541, Rules Relating to the Provisions of Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 53, without changes as published in the March 11, 2022, issue of the Texas Register (47 TexReg 1208). The rules will not be republished.

The amendments to Chapter 541 are made as a result of the Commission's quadrennial rule review. The changes define "Texas Real Estate Commission" for ease of reading and consistency. Subsection (d) of 22 TAC §541.1 is amended to better reflect the applicable statutory requirements found in § 53.023, Occupations Code. Additionally, the title of 22 TAC §541.2, Criminal History Evaluation Letters, is amended to add "Determination of Fitness" to reflect the terminology used in section 1101.353, Occupations Code.

No comments were received on the proposed amendments as published.

The amendments are adopted under Texas Occupations Code, §1101.151, which authorizes the Texas Real Estate Commission to adopt and enforce rules necessary to administer Chapters 1101 and 1102; and to establish standards of conduct and ethics for its license holders to fulfill the purposes of Chapters 1101 and 1102 and ensure compliance with Chapters 1101 and 1102. The amendments are also proposed pursuant to Chapter 53, Occupations Code.
