Boards for Lease of State-Owned Lands
Rule Review Plan

In accordance with 2001.039, Texas Government Code, the General Land Office (GLO), submits the following rule review plan for the Boards for Lease of State-Owned Land for review of their rules.

The rule review includes, Title 31, Natural Resources and Conservation, Part 5, Boards for Lease of State-Owned Lands, Chapter 201, Operations of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and Texas Department of Criminal Justice Board for Lease. The GLO will conduct a review of the rules and will determine whether the reason for adoption of the rules continues to exist. During the review process, the GLO may also determine that a rule may need to be amended to further refine the directives and goals of the GLO, or that no changes to a rule as currently in effect are necessary as that rule is no longer valid or applicable. Rules will also be combined or reduced for simplification and clarity when feasible. Readopted rules will be noted in the Texas Register's Rules Review section without publication of the text. Any proposed amendments or repeal of a rule or chapter as a result of the review will be published in the Proposed Rules section of the Texas Register and will be open for an additional 30-day public comment period prior to final adoption or repeal.

The GLO invites suggestions from the public during the review process and will address any comments received. Any questions or comments should be directed to Walter Talley, Texas General Land Office, 1700 North Congress, Room 910, Austin, Texas 78701-1495, (512) 475-1859, walter.talley@glo.state.tx.us.

The GLO will initiate the review of rules within the following chapter in accordance with 2001.039, Texas Government Code. The review will begin in May 2008 and be concluded no later than May 31, 2009.
