Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Texas provides one-stop permitting for nonmajor sources because the construction permits also provide the conditions under which the source is allowed to operate. Major sources must comply with the provisions of the state's Title V operating permit program. In general, the state Title V operating permit program, known as the federal operating permit program, follows federal Part 70 rules, including provisions establishing greenhouse gas (GHG) permitting thresholds.
