On the motion of a party, on notice to each other party, and subject to limitations of the kind provided for discovery under the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, a state agency in which a contested case is pending may order a party:


to produce and to permit the party making the motion or a person on behalf of that party to inspect and to copy or photograph a designated document, paper, book, account, letter, photograph, or tangible thing in the party’s possession, custody, or control that:


is not privileged; and


constitutes or contains, or is reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of, evidence that is material to a matter involved in the contested case; and


to permit entry to designated land or other property in the party’s possession or control to inspect, measure, survey, or photograph the property or a designated object or operation on the property that may be material to a matter involved in the contested case.


An order under this section:


must specify the time, place, and manner of making the inspection, measurement, or survey or of making copies or photographs; and


may prescribe other terms and conditions that are just.
