77TH LEGISLATURE, REGULAR SESSION (January 9 - May 28, 2001)
The Texas Legislature had the responsibility to redraw the senate, house, congressional, and State Board of Education districts during regular session
of the 77th Legislature, which convened in January 2001. The census bureau provides the population data necessary for redistricting, and the Texas
Constitution requires the legislature to redraw the state senate and house districts during the first regular legislative session following
publication of the census data. The Texas census data was delivered on March 12, 2001.
LEGISLATIVE REDISTRICTING BOARD (June 6 - July 24, 2001)
As required by the Texas Constitution, the Legislative Redistricting Board (LRB) convened following the failure of the legislature to draw legislative
districts. The LRB, which has authority to adopt only state senate and house districts, convened on June 6, 2001, and adopted new districts for the
state senate (PLAN 01188S) and new districts for the state house (PLAN01289H) on July 24. These plans were submitted to the U.S. Department of Justice
for preclearance under the Voting Rights Act.
SEE IT WAS ALREADY DONE BUT THE REPUGNANTS WANT MORE LIKE THE SLITHERING REPTILES THEY ARE!
