On December 7, 2016 , the TCEQ adopted revisions to the public notice rules for initial registrations for the Air Quality Standard Permit for Concrete Batch Plants. The rule change consolidates the publication of the first and second public notices into a single notice. Public comments, requests for public meetings, and requests for contested case hearings will be accepted for 30 days after publication of the consolidated notice. Applications to register for the Concrete Batch Plant Standard Permit received on and after January 1, 2017, will be subject to the consolidated notice rules. Renewal applications for the standard permit were not affected by the rulemaking. Instructions for public notice are sent to applicants.
