The Department of Transportation proposed to amend 43 Tex. Admin. Code §§2.1, 2.2, 2.5-2.8, 2.11, 2.12, 2.14, 2.41-2.44, 2.46-2.52, 2.81, 2.83-2.86, 2.131, and 2.134, repeal §2.82 and §§2.101-2.110, and add §§2.101 - 2.110. The proposed amendments relate to the environmental review of transportation projects and seek to implement Senate Bill 466, pertaining to the delegation of responsibilities under NEPA and other federal environmental laws from the Federal Highway Administration. Changes also clarify and streamline the environmental review process and maintain consistency with the federal transportation reauthorization bill.
