Link of the Day – The Texas Register

The Texas Register, a publication of the Texas Secretary of State, serves as the notice bulletin of state agency rulemaking. The Texas Register contains emergency, proposed, and adopted rules; notices of withdrawn and repealed rules; notices of rule review and other information submitted by state agencies for publication. Quoting from the Web site:

Established by the Texas Legislature in 1975, the Texas Register serves as the journal of state agency rulemaking for Texas. Information published in the Texas Register includes proposed, adopted, withdrawn and emergency rule actions, notices of state agency review of agency rules, governor’s appointments, attorney general opinions, and miscellaneous documents such as requests for proposals. These rulemaking actions are codified into the Texas Administrative Code, also maintained by the Office of the Secretary of State.

Publication of the Texas Register began in January, 1976. Demand for rules in electronic format prompted the release of the Texas Register on diskettes in 1991, and later through a dial-up electronic bulletin board. The Texas Register was made available through the Secretary of State’s web site beginning in January, 1996 as directed by HB 2304 (74th Legislature). The Texas Register was made available first in a “plain text” version and is now available in both .html and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.

Senate Bill 1177 (75th Legislature) decreased the publication frequency of the Texas Register from twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays) to weekly (Fridays only). This change went into effect in September, 1997.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
