Under current law, the attorney general must bring suit upon request by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality or the Public Utility Commission for the
appointment of a receiver to collect the assets and carry on the
business of a water or sewer utility that has abandoned operation or violated a final order of either commission. HB 294 would also require the attorney general to bring such a suit against a utility that violates a final judgment issued by a district
court in a suit brought by the attorney general under the Water or Health and Safety Code.
