Department of Family and Protective Services
During the 84th Legislative Session, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 200, addressing the reorganization of health and human services delivery in Texas. As a result, certain functions previously performed by the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) transferred to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) in accordance with Texas Government Code, §531.0201, §531.02011 and §531.02013. The DFPS rules in Texas Administrative Code, Title 40, Part 19, Chapter 711, Investigations of Individuals Receiving Services from Certain Providers that are related to these transferred functions are being transferred to HHSC under Texas Administrative Code, Title 26, Part 1, Chapter 711, Investigations of Individuals Receiving Services from Certain Providers. All rules in Chapter 711 are transferring except for Subchapter O, Employee Misconduct Registry, which will remain in Title 40, Part 19, Chapter 711.
The rules will be transferred in the Texas Administrative Code effective June 15, 2019.
