Formal Opinion

Formal opinions clarify the meaning of existing law and interpret issues that are ambiguous, obscure, or otherwise unclear as these apply to the particular circumstances presented in a formal opinion request. Requests for opinion are governed under the Board’s rule, 43 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Section 215.4, which contains specific requirements that an opinion request must meet to be eligible for Board consideration.
