Tex. Gov't Code Section 490C.106
Enforcement of Administrative or Civil Penalty


The enforcement of an administrative penalty under this section may be stayed during the time the order is under judicial review if the person pays the penalty to the clerk of the court or files a supersedeas bond with the court in the amount of the penalty. A person who cannot afford to pay the penalty or file the bond may stay the enforcement by filing an affidavit in the manner required by the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure for a party who cannot afford to file security for costs, subject to the right of the office to contest the affidavit as provided by those rules.


At the request of the office, the attorney general or the county attorney or district attorney of the county in which the violation is alleged to have occurred may file suit to collect the civil penalty.
