The Executive Commissioner of the Health and Human Services is withdrawing the proposed asbestos rules for the Department of State Health Services (department)

The proposed rules were originally published in the November 11, 2016, issue of the Texas Register for a 60-day comment period. The extended 60-day comment period resulted in numerous additional suggestions from commenters for changes beyond those offered during pre-publication opportunities for comment. Certain questions, concerns, and confusion commonly expressed by numerous commenters reflected a need for further changes and clarifications in the rule text. In addition, fiscal impacts were asserted that warrant re-evaluation to ensure that any such potential fiscal impacts, including to small and micro-businesses, are fully evaluated and that, where available and still protective of public health, alternatives are given appropriate consideration. In light of these factors, additional time is being taken to ensure that such changes and clarifications are clearly communicated and explained, and reflect considered evaluation of the comments submitted in response to the November 2016 publication of proposed rules.

Those proposed rules will be withdrawn and revised proposed rules will be republished, with another opportunity for public comment and consideration of those comments, prior to adoption. Once it is filed, the withdrawal will be available to be viewed by the public on the Secretary of State’s website at , and will be subsequently published in the Texas Register. The Department’s Asbestos Program anticipates that this approach will help to ensure that the rule set ultimately adopted is responsive to certain common stakeholder concerns, improves clarity, and ensures that legal requirements related to the rulemaking are met.

The department will provide further information regarding the new proposed rule timeline and publication date as it becomes available. If you have any questions regarding this message or the new proposed rule time line, please send your questions via email to the EHG Rules Coordinator mailbox at .

Thank you for your interest in the Texas Asbestos Health Protection Rules.

Asbestos is well recognized as a health hazard and is highly regulated. An estimated 1.3 million employees in the construction and general industry face significant asbestos exposure on the job. Heaviest exposures occur in the construction industry, particularly during the removal of asbestos during renovation or demolition. Employees are also likely to be exposed during the manufacture of asbestos products (such as textiles, friction products, insulation, and other building materials) and during automotive brake and clutch repair work.

Asbestos Symptoms
The respiratory tract is the most common site of asbestos exposure symptoms. Symptoms differ depending on the particular problem.
The main symptom of asbestosis is shortness of breath. Other symptoms may include:
•Persistent cough that produces mucus
•Chest tightness
• Chest pain
•Loss of appetite
•Dry, crackling sound in lungs while inhaling
Symptoms of lung cancer can include:
•Cough (including coughing up blood)
•Wheezing •Unexplained weight loss
•Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
•Persistent chest pain •Hoarseness
The main symptoms of mesothelioma of the lungs are shortness of breath and chest pain. Symptoms of abdominal mesothelioma can include:
•Weight loss
•Swelling and pain in the abdomen
•Blood clotting abnormalities
•Bowel obstruction
Because many conditions share these symptoms, having these symptoms doesn't necessarily mean you have asbestos-related cancer or lung damage. If you experience symptoms, it's important to see your doctor.
