Relating to the regulation of motor fuel quality and motor fuel
HB 2366 would lower the cap on the maximum administrative penalty to $2,500 from $5,000 for certain violations related to motor fuel quality and motor fuel metering devices. The bill would also extend the registration period from one year to two years for metering devices.
The bill would also cap fee increases for inspection of fuel metering devices at 10% per biennium.
In addition, the bill updates procedures for making a complaint to the Texas Department of Agriculture regarding motor fuel metering devices or motor fuel metering quality.
Texas Action supports HB 2366 which is in alignment with limited government and individual liberty. Reducing fees and penalties, and capping the growth of inspection fees would reduce the cost of government for people and businesses subject to those particular regulations.
