§ 113.025. POWERS OF TRUSTEE REGARDING ENVIRONMENTAL
LAWS. (a) A trustee or a potential trustee may inspect,
investigate, cause to be inspected, or cause to be investigated
trust property, property that the trustee or potential trustee has
been asked to hold, or property owned or operated by an entity in
which the trustee or potential trustee holds or has been asked to
hold any interest or for the purpose of determining the potential
application of environmental law with respect to the property.
This subsection does not grant any person the right of access to any
property. The taking of any action under this subsection with
respect to a trust or an addition to a trust is not evidence that a
person has accepted the trust or the addition to the trust.
(b) A trustee may take on behalf of the trust any action
before or after the initiation of an enforcement action or other
legal proceeding that the trustee reasonably believes will help to
prevent, abate, or otherwise remedy any actual or potential
violation of any environmental law affecting property held directly
or indirectly by the trustee.
