Applicable persons at these operations will be required to have a fingerprint-based criminal history check and out-of-state check beginning July 26. Individual notifications will be sent to impacted operations and persons with a deadline for the operation to submit a background check and the person to submit fingerprints.
Impacted persons with a prior eligibility determination that allows the person to be present at the operation may continue to be present at the operation pending the submission of a new background check, the submission of fingerprints and a new eligibility determination.
No comments were received on the proposed rules. The adoption of these rules was published in the July 22 issue of the Texas Register.
