Please review and distribute as appropriate.
During the 82nd Legislative Session, the Texas Legislature passed HB
2357 which created Transportation Code, Sec. 520.004, requiring the
department to establish standards for uniformity and service quality for
the titling and registration of vehicles by counties and dealers
licensed under Section 520.005.
As a result of this legislation the TxDMV Board, at its March 2012
meeting, created the Special Advisory Committee on Standards.  This
committee is made up of six Tax Assessor Collectors and two TxDMV Board
members.  The committee has conducted five conference call meetings and
considered numerous items for standardization.
As a result of the committee’s work several amendments to the Texas
Administrative Code, Sec. 217.3 on Motor Vehicle Titles, and Sec. 217.22
on Motor Vehicle Registration, were presented to the TxDMV Board at the
November 2012 meeting and are tentatively scheduled for consideration
for adoption at the January 2013 TxDMV Board meeting.
