Status of transition of this program to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR):
|Senate Bill 202 became effective on September 1, 2015. That bill has mandated that the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and TDLR develop a transition plan for the “orderly transfer of powers, duties, functions, programs, and activities”. This transition must be completed no later than August 31, 2017.
DSHS and TDLR are currently in the process of formulating the transition plan. Once that plan is completed and agreed upon by both agencies, it will be made available to the public. The plan will include the agreed date for the transfer of regulatory authority. The current DSHS rules will remain in effect until that date.
