Texas House passes proposed new map for chamber’s 150 districts, aiming to protect Republicans’ majority for the next decade

Members considered more than 50 amendments to the proposed map during debate that began Tuesday and ended early Wednesday. Some of the biggest changes focused on Dallas and Harris counties.


The House's 83-63 vote comes as the Legislature rounds out its third special session of the year, which has focused on redrawing the state's congressional, Senate, House and State Board of Education maps based on the latest census data.
