Melissa Davis Quoted in Law360 on TCEQ / Brazos Valley Case

“Texas Cos. Urge State Justices To OK Pollution Exemptions”

Texas electric companies that operate heat recovery steam generators in power plants told the Texas Supreme Court on Thursday that they qualify for property tax exemptions for pollution control, arguing the statute in question clearly supports the exemptions.

…After another justice asked a similar question, counsel for Brazos, Melissa Davis of Thompson & Knight LLP, responded in the affirmative: “If we have complied with every element of the statute, including the procedural requirements and exclusions, we comply with every element of the statute for an exemption.”
