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 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
