Sec. 2003.048. TEXAS COMMISSION ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY HEARINGS FEE. The office shall charge the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality a fixed annual fee rather than an hourly rate for services rendered by the office to the commission. The amount of the fee may not be less than the amount appropriated to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in the General Appropriations Act for payment to the office to conduct commission hearings. The amount of the fee shall be based on the costs of conducting the hearings, the costs of travel expenses and telephone charges directly related to the hearings, docketing costs, and other applicable administrative costs of the office. The office and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality shall negotiate the amount of the fixed fee biennially, subject to the approval of the governor, to coincide with the commission's legislative appropriations request.
