The Texas House Committee on Redistricting will meet to hear testimony at 4 p.m. Oct. 9 at the Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus, 300 Trinity River Campus Circle, fourth floor.
The purpose of the field hearings is to solicit public input on the 2021 legislative redistricting process and provide context to the official 2020 Census data that the 87th Legislature will receive by April 2021. Since the Legislature will not receive official data from the U.S. Census Bureau until the 87th session is underway, these interim field hearings provide opportunities for Texans to share information they believe is relevant to the upcoming redistricting process.
Invited testimony will be presented by the Texas Demographic Center and Texas Legislative Council, Mapping and Redistricting Section. The chair may limit individual public testimony time in consideration of all participants.
Residents who are unable to attend and would like to provide testimony may email or call legislators on the Redistricting Committee. A list of committee member information can be found online.
Shortly after the conclusion of the hearing, a video archive will be available.
