After ongoing petitioning from the Texas Propane Gas Association, last year, the Texas Commission of Licensing & Regulation (TDLR) proposed amendments to their Motor Fuel Metering & Quality requirements to create an exemption from Department regulation for motor fuel metering devices that dispense liquid petroleum gas (LPG).
The rules were finally adopted and became effective on March 1, 2022. The adopted exemption applies to all “motor fuel” metering devices that dispense LPG and removes the requirement that service companies and service technicians who provide maintenance activities on LPG motor fuel metering devices be licensed with TDLR.
The adopted rules are necessary to end duplicative regulation for businesses that are also subject to registration or licensure requirements by the Texas Department of Agriculture.
The Texas Department of Agriculture will continue to maintain jurisdiction and regulatory authority of all LPG meters.
