The Texas Legislature has one week left in it's third special session. The item on the forefront: redistricting. Redistricting occurs every 10 years after the U.S. Census results are collected and certified. The U.S. Census measures how much the United States population has grown and changed based on various demographics. Then, state legislatures redraw district maps to reflect the census results. The 2020 census reflected that people of color fueled 95% of Texas' population growth.
