Texas Workforce Commission

Rule Transfer

Senate Bill (SB) 212, enacted by the 84th Texas Legislature (2015), abolishes the Texas Council on Purchasing from People with Disabilities (TCPPD). Section 29(a) of SB 212 transfers all TCPPD powers and duties to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). Per Section 29(b), all TCPPD rules continue in effect as rules of the TWC until superseded.

In order to comply with SB 212, the Texas Register administratively transfers Texas Administrative Code, Title 40, Part 7, Chapter 189, §§1891.1 - 189.13, concerning Purchases of Products and Services from People with Disabilities, to Title 40, Part 20, Chapter 806, §§806.1 - 806.13.

The transfer takes effect September 1, 2015.
