Texas Redistricting

By  | 

Both sides in Texas' redistricting fight have got two weeks to suggest how to redraw a congressional district whose borders were struck down by the US Supreme Court.

A federal judge says proposed changes are due July 14th, and oral arguments before a judicial panel will be held August third.

Democrats have been fighting a pro-Republican Texas congressional map, accusing the GOP of an illegal power grab.

The Supreme Court earlier this week upheld all but one of the redrawn districts -- tossing out the map for the 23rd District, which stretches from San Antonio to Laredo and westward almost to El Paso.
