ATTORNEY GENERAL CORNYN RESPONDS TO FEDERAL COURT ORDER ON LRB HOUSE AND SENATE REDISTRICTING PLANS

AUSTIN - "I am pleased that the court has approved the LRB Senate map outright and 98 percent of the LRB House map, making only minor changes. Our goal was to produce maps that comply with the law and preserve minority voting rights. Today's rulings show that the LRB was successful in achieving these goals.

"This timely ruling will allow the 2002 election cycle to proceed as scheduled on Dec. 3, 2001, when candidates may begin to file to run for office."
