No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would authorize the Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to determine at the agency's discretion whether an affected person is entitled to standing in a contested case hearing. The decision could be made without an evidentiary hearing based on that determination. Passage of the bill is not expected to result in a significant impact to TCEQ's workload.
Local Government Impact
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
