Senate Redistricting Hearing in San Antonio

 

SENATE

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

COMMITTEE:     Redistricting, Select

TIME & DATE:   10:00 AM, Thursday, March 26, 2020

PLACE:         San Antonio, Texas (see details below)
CHAIR:         Senator Joan Huffman

Location: The Committee will meet to hear invited and public testimony at Texas A&M University-San Antonio – Central Academic Building, Vista Room 402, located at One University Way, San Antonio, Texas 78224.

 

Purpose: The purpose of the interim 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 United States Census Bureau until the 87th legislative session is underway, the interim field hearings seek to maximize the opportunities for Texans to share information they believe relevant to the upcoming redistricting process, including information about communities of interest within our state.

 

Invited Testimony: Texas Demographic Center and Texas Legislative Council, Mapping and Redistricting Section

 

Public Testimony: The Chair may limit individual public testimony time in consideration of all participants.
