(Austin, TEXAS) – Today, Texas House Redistricting Committee Chair Todd Hunter (R-Corpus Christi) filed the state’s initial map proposal for the Texas House of Representatives.
Texas House Democratic Caucus Chair Chris Turner (D-Grand Prairie) issued the following statement in response.
“Texans of color have driven over 95% of the growth in Texas over the last decade. Maps for the House, Senate and Congress should reflect that. We’re still analyzing the initial House plan, but it does not appear that this map fairly reflects our state’s population growth.
“Texas House Democrats will fight every step of the way to be sure all Texans have a fair opportunity to elect the candidates of their choice.”
