Sec. § 12.033
Multiple Licenses


In this section:


“Component license” means a license issued by the department that is consolidated under this section.

the suspension or revocation of a consolidated license for a violation of a rule or statute authorizing one of the component licenses;


the combination of all inspections required for the component licenses into a single inspection; and


any other provision the department determines is necessary to implement this section.
