Miscellaneous Documents

What is a Miscellaneous Document?

Among the items in the Administrative Procedures Act to be published in the Texas Register is "information of general interest to the public of Texas, which may include, but is not limited to, federal legislation or regulations affecting the state or state agencies and state agency organizational and personnel changes."

The "In Addition" section of the Texas Register, which was designed for this type of information, has contained such items as notices of hearings which are not covered under the Open Meetings Act, descriptions of agency functions and responsibilities, requests for proposals for consultant services; and correction of error notices.
