The Texas House Redistricting Committee will hold hearings regarding proposed districts on Friday, April 15, at noon, and Sunday April 17, at 2pm. Hearings will be in room E1.030 at the Capitol, and Chairman Solomons has said anyone may testify and this will be the only opportunity for the public to weigh in.
While the Williamson County Republican Women are NOT taking a stance on the proposed maps, we believe it important for the community to be aware of the possible changes and the limited opportunity to provide feedback to state lawmakers.
The redistricting proposal will have great impact on Williamson County; Texas House districts 20 and 52 will be entirely contained within the county, but a new district, HD 149 will include parts of Burnet, Travis, Williamson and Milam Counties. Forest Creek will be split between HD 20 and HD 149 along Forest Ridge Drive. Stony Point High School in Round Rock will be in HD 20, and Georgetown High School will be in HD 52. All of Wilco's cities and towns seem to be slated to be split up.
