From the Office of the Attorney General (Greg Abbott):
AUSTIN -- The new interim maps issued late today are a substantial improvement from maps previously issued by the San Antonio court. As a result of the U.S. Supreme Court's unanimous, clear direction to the district court, these new interim maps more accurately reflect the decisions of elected Texas legislators.

In light of the State's legal arguments, the San Antonio court only modified the Legislatively enacted plan in response to alleged Voting Rights Act violations -- while leaving virtually all other districts as they were drawn by the Legislature. In doing so, the court properly rejected the demands by some plaintiffs to draw drastic and overreaching interim maps.

Results from the Texas House of Representatives Map
Tarrant and Dallas counties restored to legislatively enacted map
County line rule protected
Rejected coalition districts in Bell and Fort Bend counties

Results from the Congressional Map
CD35 restored as drawn by the Texas Legislature
CD25 restored as drawn by the Texas Legislature
CD23 as approved by House and Senate leadership

Results from the Texas Senate Map
New Senate map is same as final maps negotiated by State and approved by Senate leadership
New interim map restores SD10 to the same makeup as the benchmark
