Sec. § 1101.157
Subpoena Authority


The commission may request and, if necessary, compel by subpoena:


the attendance of witnesses for examination under oath; and


the production for inspection and copying of records, documents, and other evidence relevant to the investigation of an alleged violation of this chapter.


A subpoena may be issued throughout the state and may be served by any person designated by the commission.


If a person fails to comply with a subpoena issued under this section, the commission, acting through the attorney general, may file suit to enforce the subpoena in a district court in Travis County or in the county in which a hearing conducted by the commission may be held.


The court shall order compliance with the subpoena if the court finds that good cause exists to issue the subpoena.
