PART 3. TEXAS COMMISSION ON THE ARTS

CHAPTER 31. AGENCY PROCEDURES

13 TAC §§31.1, 31.3 - 31.5, 31.8

The Texas Commission on the Arts adopts the repeal of §31.1, concerning Purpose; §31.3, concerning Meetings; §31.4, concerning Committees; §31.5, concerning Staff; and §31.8, concerning Travel. The repeals are adopted without changes to the proposal as published in the September 27, 2019, issue of the Texas Register (44 TexReg 5463) and will not be republished.

Justification of Rule:

§31.1--The Texas Commission on the Arts proposes to repeal §31.1 because this rule is redundant and unnecessary

§31.3--The Texas Commission on the Arts proposes to repeal §31.3 because this rule establishes various committees of the Commission.

§31.4--The Commission proposes the repeal of §31.4 because this rule is no longer necessary;

§31.5 and 31.8--As both §31.5 and §31.8 concern the internal management of the agency and do not affect the interests of the public at large, they do not meet the APA's definition of a rule. Accordingly, the Texas Commission on the Arts proposes the repeal of both these rules.
