Texas Water Code and Texas Health and Safety Code Settlement Notice

The State of Texas gives notice of the following proposed resolution of an environmental enforcement action under the Texas Health and Safety Code and the Texas Water Code. Before the State may enter into a voluntary settlement agreement, pursuant to section 7.110 of the Texas Water Code, the State shall permit the public to comment in writing. The Attorney General will consider any written comments and may withdraw or withhold consent to the proposed agreement if the comments disclose facts or considerations indicating that consent is inappropriate, improper, inadequate, or inconsistent with the requirements of the law.

Case Title and Court: State of Texas v. Pasadena Refining System, Inc.; Cause No. D-1-GN-20-001496, in the 53rd Judicial District Court, Travis County, Texas.

Background: Defendant Pasadena Refining System, Inc. (PRSI) is the owner and operator of a petroleum refinery located at 111 Red Bluff Road, Pasadena, Harris County, Texas. The State filed a civil enforcement suit on behalf of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality under the Texas Clean Air Act, the Texas Water Code, and related regulations against PRSI alleging unauthorized emissions of air contaminants and noncompliance with permitted operating standards. Specifically, TCEQ alleged that between 2013 and 2018, PRSI committed multiple violations of the operating standards and maximum allowable emissions limits governed by TCEQ-issued Federal Operating Permits and New Source Review Permits.

Proposed Settlement: The parties propose an Agreed Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction which orders PRSI to implement internal policies and practices at the refinery to address its operating and reporting deficiencies, and to implement corrective actions to prevent unauthorized emissions of air contaminants; and awards the State $1.1 million in civil penalties and $35,000 in attorney's fees.

For a complete description of the proposed settlement, the Agreed Final Judgment and Permanent Injunction should be reviewed in its entirety. Requests for copies of the proposed judgment and settlement, and written comments on the same, should be directed to Erin Snody, Assistant Attorney General, Office of the Attorney General of Texas, P.O. Box 12548, MC-066, Austin, Texas 78711-2548; (512) 463-2012; facsimile (512) 320-0911; email: Erin.Snody@oag.texas.gov.

Notice of Opportunity to Comment on a Shutdown/Default Order of an Administrative Enforcement Action

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) staff is providing an opportunity for written public comment on the listed Shutdown/Default Order (S/DO). Texas Water Code (TWC), §26.3475, authorizes the commission to order the shutdown of any underground storage tank (UST) system found to be noncompliant with release detection, spill and overfill prevention, and/or, after December 22, 1998, cathodic protection regulations of the commission, until such time as the owner/operator brings the UST system into compliance with those regulations. The commission proposes a Shutdown Order after the owner or operator of a UST facility fails to perform required corrective actions within 30 days after receiving notice of the release detection, spill, and overfill prevention, and/or after December 22, 1998, cathodic protection violations documented at the facility. The commission proposes a Default Order when the staff has sent an Executive Director's Preliminary Report and Petition (EDPRP) to an entity outlining the alleged violations, the proposed penalty, the proposed technical requirements necessary to bring the entity back into compliance, and the entity fails to request a hearing on the matter within 20 days of its receipt of the EDPRP or requests a hearing and fails to participate at the hearing. In accordance with TWC, §7.075, this notice of the proposed order and the opportunity to comment is published in the Texas Register no later than the 30th day before the date on which the public comment period closes, which in this case is June 21, 2022. The commission will consider any written comments received and the commission may withdraw or withhold approval of an S/DO if a comment discloses facts or considerations that indicate that consent to the proposed S/DO is inappropriate, improper, inadequate, or inconsistent with the requirements of the statutes and rules within the commission's jurisdiction, or the commission's orders and permits issued in accordance with the commission's regulatory authority. Additional notice of changes to a proposed S/DO is not required to be published if those changes are made in response to written comments.

A copy of the proposed S/DO is available for public inspection at both the commission's central office, located at 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building A, 3rd Floor, Austin, Texas 78753, (512) 239‑3400 and at the applicable regional office listed as follows.

Public Notice - Texas State Plan for Reimbursement Methodologies for Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment Comprehensive-Care Program (EPSDT-CCP) Amendment

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) announces its intent to submit an amendment to the Texas State Plan for Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment under Title XIX of the Social Security Act. The proposed amendment is effective October 1, 2022.

The proposed amendment will update School Health and Related Services (SHARS) pages within the Reimbursement Methodologies for Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment Comprehensive-Care Program (EPSDT-CCP) section of the state plan. The amendment will allow audiology services prescribed to Medicaid-enrolled students with Section 504 Plans to be reimbursed under the SHARS program. This proposed amendement for audiology services is to comply with House Bill (H.B.) 706, 86th Legislature, Regular Session, 2019, and H.B. 3607, 87th Legislature, Regular Session, 2021.

The amendment will also add interim claiming requirements, remove milestone requirements, and update interim rate calculation and payment language. It will change provisions relating to cost report review and adjustments. The amendment to the methods and standards for setting interim payment rates for services is to implement changes to increase the integrity of the program and allow for additional detail to be collected to increase the specificity of submitted data related to services reimbursed through the SHARS program, for both individual recipients and specific services.

There may be a fiscal impact as this amendment adds the ability for reimbursement for audiology services for Section 504 eligible students. Current SHARS claims data does not reflect 504 status, so the total fiscal impact cannot be estimated prior to implementation.

Rate Hearing. No rate hearing required as rates will not change.

Copy of Proposed Amendment. Interested parties may obtain additional information and/or a free copy of the proposed amendment by contacting Shaneqwea James, State Plan Coordinator, by mail at the Health and Human Services Commission, P.O. Box 13247, Mail Code H-600, Austin, Texas 78711; by telephone at (512) 487-3349; by facsimile at (512) 730-7472; or by email at Medicaid_Chip_SPA_Inquiries@hhsc.state.tx.us. Copies of the proposed amendment will be available for review at the local county offices of HHSC, (which were formerly the local offices of the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services).

Request for Information - Platform Available to Measure the Performance of the Traffic Signals in the Dallas-Fort Worth Region

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), in coordination with transportation partner agencies through a Request for Information (RFI), is seeking letters of interest and product information for a platform with data available to measure the performance of the traffic signals in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. The desired platform should be capable to track performance measures to monitor and track signal performance by user-defined days and hour. The performance measures will indicate corridors as candidates for applying traffic signal improvements, such as retiming. The desired platform should be able to track performance measures such as intersection delay; red/green arrival ratio; travel times; turning movement counts; and pass through. The platform will require multiple individual user accounts from one or multiple different municipalities. It is envisioned at this time that individual municipalities will be responsible for individual agency accounts, but collectively overseen by NCTCOG staff. The platform should include populated data for all traffic signals in the DFW region and should be made available to NCTCOG and partner agencies to assess the performance of all traffic signals.

Information must be received no later than 5:00 p.m., Central Time, on Friday, June 17, 2022, to Natalie Bettger, Senior Program Manager, North Central Texas Council of Governments, 616 Six Flags Drive, Arlington, Texas 76011 and electronic submissions to TransRFPs@nctcog.org. The Request for Information will be available at www.nctcog.org/rfp by the close of business on Friday, May 20, 2022.

NCTCOG encourages participation by disadvantaged business enterprises and does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or disability.
