Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts on an emergency basis amendments to 22 TAC §535.58, License for Military Service Members, Veterans, or Military Spouses, in Chapter 535, General Provisions.

The amendments are adopted on an emergency basis, in part, to implement statutory changes enacted by the 88th Legislature in SB 422, becomes effective September 1, 2023, and which modifies the time period within which issuance of a license after certain conditions are satisfied, from "as soon as practicable" to no later than 30 days. The amendments reflect this statutory change.

Section 535.58 is also being proposed under §2001.023 and §2001.029, Texas Government Code, with some additional changes.

The amendments are adopted on an emergency basis 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 adopted on an emergency basis under §55.005, which requires expedited licenses for military service members, military veterans, and military spouse.

The statutes affected by this proposal are Texas Occupations Code, Chapters 1101 and 1102. No other statute, code or article is affected by the proposed amendments.
