There is no question lawmakers will take their time tackling Gov. Rick Perry’s special session redistricting call. Gov. Perry called lawmakers back for a special session to ratify the court-drawn redistricting interim maps. Instead, lawmakers in both chambers have announced plans to hold public hearings across the state.

House Redistricting Committee Chair Rep. Drew Darby (R-San Angelo) laid out the schedule today, on the House floor.

The dates are:

  • Dallas – Thursday, June 6
  • San Antonio – Monday, June 10
  • Houston – Wednesday, June 12
Senator Ken Seliger said the Senate plans to hold hearings around the state, as well.
