AP: Texas House OKs congressional redistricting map
The Republican-controlled Texas House gave preliminary approval on
Tuesday to a GOP plan to redraw congressional districts despite
concerns from Democrats that it dilutes the votes of minorities. Democrats
attacked the plan by Republican Rep. Burt Solomons, arguing it doesn't
accurately reflect minority growth over the past 10 years and defies
the federal Voting Rights Act. The map needs a final procedural vote
before it goes back to the Senate for final approval.
