Submit Comments on Rules Establishing BHEC

The Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council (BHEC) will become fully operational on September 1, 2020. All behavioral health licensing boards will be housed at BHEC which will be responsible for the administrative management of each board, including processing licenses, managing complaints, and overall operations. 
The proposed rules are extensive because they establish all functions for a brand new state agency. It is essential that these rules be carefully vetted to ensure they align with the legislative intent of HB 1501 and preserve the authority of each independent licensing board housed at BHEC.
The proposed rules were published in the April 24, 2020 issue of the Texas Register.
