Wednesday, June 28, 2006  •  Press Release

AUSTIN - Governor Rick Perry today issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision on Texas congressional redistricting:

“Today is a clear victory for our state as the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Texas’ redrawing of a gerrymandered map, and preserved the vast majority of the redrawn districts.

“The Supreme Court has ordered the three-judge panel to address the one district requiring further action, and we expect the panel to hold a hearing in the near future to address the timeline for the process. I will work with Attorney General Abbott in our state’s efforts to resolve this legal issue.”
