Dallas Public Input Hearing on Redistricting

  • City of Dallas - City Hall 1500 Marilla Street Dallas, TX, 75201 United States (map)

The Committee will meet to hear invited and public testimony at Dallas City Hall, Council Chamber on the 6th floor located at 1500 Marilla Street, Dallas, TX 75201.

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.
