Fort Worth Public Input Hearing on Redistricting

October 9 @ 4:00 pm - 11:30 pm CDT

The Committee will meet to hear invited and public testimony at Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus – Action Suites on the 4th floor of main building located at 300 Trinity Campus Circle, Fort Worth, TX 76102.

The purpose of the interim field hearings is to solicit public input on the 2021 legislative redistricting process and provide context to the official 2020 Census data that the 87th Legislature will receive by April 2021. Since the Legislature will not receive official data from the U.S. Census Bureau until the 87th session is underway, these interim field hearings seek to maximize the opportunities for Texans to share information they believe relevant to the upcoming redistricting process, including information about communities of interest within our state.

Invited testimony: Texas Demographic Center and Texas Legislative Council, Mapping and Redistricting Section

The chair may limit individual public testimony time in consideration of all participants.

Interpretation assistance can be provided by request made at least 72 hours in advance of the hearing. Please contact committee staff at 512-463-9948 or ashley.westenhover@house.texas.gov.
