Tex. Occ. Code Section 2025.203
Summary Suspension


The commission may summarily suspend a racetrack license if the commission determines that a racetrack at which races or pari-mutuel wagering are conducted under the license is being operated in a manner that constitutes an immediate threat to the health, safety, or welfare of the racing participants or the patrons.


After issuing a summary suspension order, the executive director shall serve on the racetrack association an order:


stating the specific charges; and


requiring the license holder immediately to cease and desist from all conduct permitted by the license.


The executive director shall serve the order by personal delivery or registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, to the license holder’s last known address. The order must contain a notice that a request for hearing may be filed under this subchapter.


A summary suspension order continues in effect unless the order is stayed by the executive director. The executive director may impose any condition before granting a stay of the order.
