Statement on Fifth Circuit Court Stay of TAP Lawsuit
TCEQ Statement on Fifth Circuit Court Stay of TAP Lawsuit:
"The State of Texas is appreciative of the Fifth Circuit’s decision to stay the lower court ruling. As we said previously, this case is an attempt to rewrite the Texas Water Code. It is critical that the state retain the ability to regulate state surface water as provided under state law, and not the Endangered Species Act."
See the U.S. Court of Appeals Order 13-40317.
