The draft map redrawing House districts was introduced today and scheduled for a public hearing on Monday. House Bill 1 by Rep. Todd Hunter (R-Corpus Christi) is the first step in the legislative process and is less likely to be a final product than the other chamber’s bill.
Broadly, the proposed map would increase the number of Republican-friendly districts. According to several analyses, the number of districts where Anglos comprise a majority of the voting-eligible population would increase by six. The number of Hispanic/Latino-majority districts and Black-majority districts would each decrease by three. The number of districts that would have been carried by President Trump would increase to 86, up 10 from the number of districts he carried in 2020.
