Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR)
The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation adopted the Department’s revised enforcement plan which was established in compliance with the Texas Occupations Code, §51.302(c). The enforcement plan is revised to include the penalty matrix for the Behavior Analysts program.
The penalty matrix for the Behavior Analysts program was published in the March 13, 2020, issue of the Texas Register (45 TexReg 1884). The updated penalty matrix is now made available on the Department’s website.
