Certification of the Average Closing Price of Gas and Oil - December 2018

The Comptroller of Public Accounts, administering agency for the collection of the Oil Production Tax, has determined, as required by Tax Code, §202.058, that the average taxable price of oil for reporting period December 2018 is $46.06 per barrel for the three-month period beginning on September 1, 2018, and ending November 30, 2018. Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §202.058, oil produced during the month of December 2018, from a qualified low-producing oil lease, is not eligible for a credit on the oil production tax imposed by Tax Code, Chapter 202.

The Comptroller of Public Accounts, administering agency for the collection of the Natural Gas Production Tax, has determined, as required by Tax Code, §201.059, that the average taxable price of gas for reporting period December 2018 is $2.54 per mcf for the three-month period beginning on September 1, 2018, and ending November 30, 2018. Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §201.059, gas produced during the month of December 2018, from a qualified low-producing well, is eligible for a 50.00% credit on the natural gas production tax imposed by Tax Code, Chapter 201.

Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §171.1011(r), a taxable entity shall not exclude total revenue received from oil produced during the month of December 2018, from a qualified low-producing oil well.

The Comptroller of Public Accounts, administering agency for the collection of the Franchise Tax, has determined, as required by Tax Code, §171.1011(s), that the average closing price of gas for the month of December 2018 is $3.90 per MMBtu. Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §171.1011(r), a taxable entity shall exclude total revenue received from gas produced during the month of December 2018, from a qualified low-producing gas well.

Inquiries should be submitted to Teresa G. Bostick, Director, Tax Policy Division, P.O. Box 13528, Austin, Texas 78711-3528.

The commission will hold a public hearing on this proposal in El Paso on February 19, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. MST, at the TCEQ Regional Office, 401 E. Franklin Avenue, Suite 560, Room 570.

Notice of Request for Public Comment and Notice of a Public Meeting on Two Draft Total Maximum Daily Loads and One Draft Implementation Plan for Indicator Bacteria in Lavaca River Above Tidal and Rocky Creek

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ, commission, or agency) has made available for public comment two draft Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for indicator bacteria and one draft Implementation Plan (I-Plan) for the two TMDLs for indicator bacteria in Lavaca River Above Tidal and Rocky Creek, of the Lavaca River Basin, within Calhoun, DeWitt, Fayette, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, and Victoria Counties.

The purpose of the public meeting is to provide the public an opportunity to comment on the draft TMDLs and the draft I-Plan for indicator bacteria in two assessment units in two segments: 1602_03 and 1602B_01.

A TMDL is a detailed water quality assessment that provides the scientific foundation to allocate pollutant loads in a certain body of water in order to restore and maintain designated uses. The commission requests comments on each of the major components of the TMDL: problem definition, endpoint identification, source analysis, seasonal variation, linkage between sources and receiving waters, margin of safety, pollutant loading allocation, public participation, and implementation and reasonable assurances.

The TCEQ is also taking public comment on one draft I-Plan for the two TMDLs for indicator bacteria in Lavaca River Above Tidal and Rocky Creek. The I-Plan, developed by regional stakeholders, is a flexible tool that the governmental and non-governmental participants involved in TMDL implementation will use to guide their actions and practices. The commission requests comment on each of the major components of the I-Plan, including management measures, implementation strategy and tracking, review strategy, and communication strategy.

After the public comment period, the TCEQ may revise the draft TMDLs and the draft I-Plan if appropriate. The final TMDLs will then be considered by the commission for adoption and the I-Plan for approval. Upon adoption of the TMDLs by the commission, the final TMDLs and a response to all comments received will be made available on the TCEQ's website. The TMDLs will then be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Region 6 office for final action by the EPA. Upon approval by the EPA, the TMDLs will be certified as an update to the State of Texas Water Quality Management Plan. Upon approval by the commission, the I-Plan will be made available on the TCEQ's website.

The public comment meeting for the draft TMDLs and draft I-Plan will be held on February 21, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. at the Jackson County Extension Office, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, 411 N. Wells Street, Edna, Texas 77957.

At this meeting, individuals will have the opportunity to present oral statements when called upon in order of registration. An agency staff member will give a brief presentation at the start of the meeting and will be available to answer questions before and after all public comments have been received.

Written comments on the draft TMDLs and the draft I-Plan should be submitted to Sarah Kates, Water Quality Planning Division, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, MC 203, P.O. Box 13087, Austin, Texas 78711-3087 or faxed to (512) 239-1414. Comments may also be submitted electronically to https://www6.tceq.texas.gov/rules/ecomments/. All comments must be received at TCEQ by midnight on March 5, 2019, and should reference the Two Total Maximum Daily Loads and Implementation Plan for Two Total Maximum Daily Loads for Indicator Bacteria in Lavaca River Above Tidal and Rocky Creek.

For further information regarding the draft TMDLs and the draft I-Plan, please contact Sarah Kates at (512) 239-3182 or Sarah.Kates@tceq.texas.gov.

The STIP also contains information on federally funded projects in rural areas that are not included in any MPO area, and other statewide programs as listed.

Title 23, United States Code, §134 and §135 require each designated MPO and the state, respectively, to develop a TIP and STIP as a condition to securing federal funds for transportation projects under Title 23 or the Federal Transit Act (49 USC §5301, et seq.). Section 134 requires an MPO to develop its TIP in cooperation with the state and affected public transit operators and to provide an opportunity for interested parties to participate in the development of the program. Section 135 requires the state to develop a STIP for all areas of the state in cooperation with the designated MPOs and, with respect to non-metropolitan areas, in consultation with affected local officials, and further requires an opportunity for participation by interested parties as well as approval by the Governor or the Governor's designee.

A copy of the proposed February 2019 Quarterly Revisions to the FY 2019-2022 STIP will be available for review, at the time the notice of hearing is published, at each of the department's district offices, at the department's Transportation Planning and Programming Division offices located in Building 118, Second Floor, 118 East Riverside Drive, Austin, Texas, or (512) 486-5033, and on the department's website at: http://www.txdot.gov/government/programs/stips.html.

While any persons with pertinent comments or testimony will be granted an opportunity to present them during the course of the hearing, the presiding authority reserves the right to restrict testimony in terms of time or repetitive content. Groups, organizations, or associations should be represented by only one speaker. Speakers are requested to refrain from repeating previously presented testimony.
