With passage of HB 1 which contains two separate budget strategies for TEOG, one for community colleges and one for technical and state colleges, the THECB will establish a Negotiated Rulemaking Committee on TEOG for Community Colleges and a Negotiated Rulemaking Committee on TEOG for Technical and Lamar State Colleges to develop rules for the TEOG allocation methodology and procedures for THECB staff to verify the accuracy of the apllication of that allocation methodology. The allocation methodologies (emergency rules) developed by these negotiated rulemaking committees (NRMC) upon reaching consensus will be recommended to the Board for adoption on June 24 and will affect the FY16 allocations.
