One of the most important tasks the Texas Legislature has this year is redistricting. We will draw the lines to determine who will represent you in the Texas Senate, Texas House, State Board of Education and U.S. Congress for the next 10 years. It is very important that as many Texans as possible have their voices heard as part of this process. Therefore, I urge you to take part in the virtual Senate Redistricting Committee hearing for the Houston region on Friday, Feb. 12 at 9 am. All testimony will be taken virtually to ensure the safety of all participants.
To testify you must register in advance of the hearing by completing the witness registration form available here. Registration is now open and will close 24 hours prior to the start of the hearing (Feb. 11 at 9 am). Witnesses must complete all fields of the registration form including the witness affirmation. After completing the form, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a link to join the videoconference and other instructions.
If you wish to watch the regional hearing without providing testimony, you may do so here.
Please share this information with anyone you think would be interested in testifying. If you need assistance registering, do not hesitate to contact my office at 512-463-0106.
