Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Redistricting Maps

Tuesday, February 28, 2012  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry issued the following statement regarding the release of redistricting maps that will be used in the upcoming primaries:

"While we believe the original maps drawn by the Texas Legislature were fair and legal, I am pleased we finally have maps that enable us to proceed with our elections.

"As the Supreme Court has agreed, the federal court in San Antonio overstepped its boundaries when it took it upon itself to draw new maps. Had the federal court done it correctly to begin with, the time, costs and inconvenience to our state could have been avoided, and we would be having our elections on schedule."
