AUSTIN - State Sen. Lois W. Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) has announced that the Senate Select Committee on Redistricting will be holding hearings September 7 through September 11 to receive input from Texans.

Each decade, the Texas Legislature draws new district boundaries based on the U.S. Census. Earlier this year, the committee held hearings in advance of the release of the 2020 Census. Now with the results of 2020 Census released the committee once again would like to hear from Texans about the importance of new districts that will be in place from 2022 until 2032.

“All Texans will be able to register to testify remotely via Zoom from the Senate of Texas website, said Kolkhorst.” “Our government depends on your participation and I encourage you to register to testify so that residents of Senate District 18 have their voices heard.”
