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 October 2019 is $41.80 per barrel for the three-month period beginning on July 1, 2019, and ending September 30, 2019. Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §202.058, oil produced during the month of October 2019, 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 October 2019 is $1.27 per mcf for the three-month period beginning on July 1, 2019, and ending September 30, 2019. Therefore, pursuant to Tax Code, §201.059, gas produced during the month of October 2019, from a qualified low-producing well, is eligible for a 100% 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 October 2019, 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 October 2019 is $2.34 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 October 2019, 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.

Texas Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors

Criminal History Policy for Licensees, Updated August 2019

Pursuant to Chapter 53, Texas Occupations Code, relating to Consequences for Criminal Conviction, the Texas Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors has filed the following policies regarding criminal incidents for applicants and licensees with the Secretary of State:

Policy Determination:

Under Board Rule §137.5, licensees are required to notify the Board of any misdemeanor or felony convictions within 30 days of the action. In addition, at the time of annual renewal, all licensed engineers are asked to state whether he or she has, since the last renewal, been convicted of an offense for a felony or misdemeanor. The board may also, at its discretion, submit identifying information to the Texas Department of Public Safety and or other appropriate agencies requesting records for a licensee. All reported convictions will be documented in the licensee's board record and referred to the Compliance & Enforcement Division for review.

Board Rule §139.43 states that upon review of the reported criminal convictions, the Board may take any of the standard enforcement actions. Any felony convictions which result in incarceration shall result in revocation of the license.

Reported convictions meeting all the following conditions may be handled by the Executive Director and staff without referral to the board:

Minimal or no relationship of the crime to the person's ability to practice as a Professional Engineer in Texas;

The conviction was a single occurrence during the previous year;

The conviction was of misdemeanor level, not felony; and

There was no incarceration associated.

Pursuant to the Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 53, and consistent with Board Rule §133.99, relating to Processing of Applications with a Criminal Conviction, the Board considers convictions for the following crimes to directly relate to the practice of engineering due to the adverse impact each of these crimes has on the special trust and ethical duties a Professional Engineer owes to the client and the public involving honesty, integrity, fidelity, and the exercise of good judgement and character:

Any felony or misdemeanor which involves disregard for the health, safety, or welfare of the general public or individuals, including violent crimes or crimes involving drugs or alcohol;

Any felony or misdemeanor of which theft, fraud or deceit is an essential element;

Any felony or misdemeanor which demonstrates a lack of professional judgment expected of a Professional Engineer;

Any felony or misdemeanor involving financial or other loss for a client(s) or the public; or

Any felony or misdemeanor reflecting adversely upon the client's fitness to practice engineering

If a licensee's self-reported criminal conviction or the results of a staff initiated criminal history record check indicate that a conviction for any of the above felony or misdemeanor has occurred, a formal enforcement case may be opened.

Staff will consider the factors found in the Texas Occupations Code, Chapter 53 when evaluating the proposed resolution to any opened enforcement case.

Applicable Rules:

Title 22 Texas Administrative Code §137.5 Notification of Name Change, Address Change, Employer Change, and Criminal Convictions

Title 22 Texas Administrative Code §139.43 License Holder with Criminal Convictions

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ or commission) staff is providing an opportunity for written public comment on the listed Shutdown/Default Orders (S/DOs). 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 January 3, 2019. 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 each 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. Written comments about the S/DO shall be sent to the attorney designated for the S/DO at the commission's central office at P.O. Box 13087, MC 175, Austin, Texas 78711‑3087 and must be received by 5:00 p.m. on January 3, 2019. Written comments may also be sent by facsimile machine to the attorney at (512) 239‑3434. The commission's attorneys are available to discuss the S/DOs and/or the comment procedure at the listed phone numbers; however, comments on the S/DOs shall be submitted to the commission in writing.

Requests for federal consistency review were deemed administratively complete for the following project(s) during the period of November 12, 2019, to November 15, 2019. As required by federal law, the public is given an opportunity to comment on the consistency of proposed activities in the coastal zone undertaken or authorized by federal agencies. Pursuant to 31 TAC §§506.25, 506.32, and 506.41, the public comment period extends 30 days from the date published on the Texas General Land Office web site. The notice was published on the web site on Friday, November 22, 2019. The public comment period for this project will close at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 22, 2019.

FEDERAL AGENCY ACTIONS:

Applicant: Freeport LNG (FLNG)

Location: The proposed project is within a marsh near the Brazos River and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW), south of the City of Freeport, Brazoria County, Texas.

Latitude & Longitude (NAD 83): 28.927514, -95.365667

Project Description: The applicant proposes to modify Department of the Army (DA) permit #SWG-2013-00147 for the construction of an enclosed 112.75-acre confined dredged material placement area (DMPA) with 25-foot-tall levees that contain outfall structures. The project will also require a 0.15-acre access road that will be permanently filled with material to access the levee.

Type of Application: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) permit application #SWG-2013-00147. This application will be reviewed pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. Note: The consistency review for this project may be conducted by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality as part of its certification under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act.

CMP Project No: 20-1059-F1

Applicant: Franke Realty, Inc.

Location: The project is located on a 247-acre parcel of land adjacent to the Laguna Madre, north of Andy Bowie Park, at 8605 Padre Boulevard, South Padre Island, Cameron County, Texas.

Latitude & Longitude (NAD 83): 26.150496, -97.177344

Project Description: The applicant proposes to reauthorize development activities to complete construct on of a multi-use canal subdivision that would include a marina and condominiums. The remaining portions of the project to be completed include bulkheading, bridges, and boat docks. Approximately 20,000 linear feet of bulkheading would be installed along the original permitted lines to complete shoreline stabilization around the seven islands of the project site and in the northwest portion of the project. These would be constructed of fiberglass panels similar to those for the bulkhead already constructed. Area behind the bulkheading would be backfilled with sand to reclaim approximately 8.6 acres of non-wetland waters that have developed as a result of shoreline erosion. Also, to be constructed are seven bridges that would link the development area, and five floating concrete docks in the proposed marina. At some point in the future, individual small boat docks would also be constructed in this area as new houses are built along the marina; however, those will be evaluated as separate permit actions. The canals have already been dredged; however, an additional 0.8 acre of upland material between the islands and the Laguna Madre would be removed and placed in upland areas onsite.

Type of Application: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) permit application #SWG-2007-00818. This application will be reviewed pursuant to Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.
