Texans Can Apply to be a Volunteer Member of the Motor Fuel Metering and Quality Advisory Board

Texans interested in serving as volunteer members of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) Motor Fuel Metering and Quality Advisory Board have until September 15 to apply for one of nine slots on the board. Members will serve staggered six-year terms.

TDLR created an informal advisory workgroup when oversight of the Motor Fuel Metering and Quality Program (FMQ) transferred from the Texas Department of Agriculture in 2019. The workgroup provided industry expertise to TDLR, which was learning more about the program.

Senate Bill 2062 (87th Legislature, Regular Session) created the Motor Fuel Metering and Quality Advisory Board and requires that the board be appointed no later than Feb. 1, 2022. The board will provide technical knowledge and industry expertise to the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation and TDLR. Two non-voting board members will represent law enforcement agencies and financial institutions.

Member vacancies include:

  • Four members who are dealers or representatives designated by the dealers, including:
    • One dealer with fewer than 501 motor fuel metering devices registered with TDLR;
    • One dealer with more than 1,000 but fewer than 5,000 motor fuel metering devices registered with TDLR;
    • One dealer with more than 5,000 motor fuel metering devices registered with TDLR; and
    • One dealer without regard to the number of motor fuel metering devices the dealer has registered with TDLR.
  • Two members who represent service companies, as defined by Section 2310.151 of the Texas Occupations Code;
  • One member who represents a wholesaler or distributor;
  • One member who represents a supplier; and
  • One public member. The public member cannot have any association with the motor fuels industry.

Anyone interested in serving as a member of the board can submit an application online or send an email requesting that an application be sent to them.

Members of the board will not be compensated, and they must cover their own expenses if they need to travel to Austin as part of their duties. Legislation in the most recent session allows TDLR advisory boards and commissions to meet via videoconference, so any travel may be limited.

All applications will be considered, and TDLR will contact applicants who were chosen to serve on the board.
