|Talk about a "sweeping" view of our part of Texas|
We've know for a couple of weeks now that Texas is gaining 4 congressional seats in the U.S. house of representatives. Also, we've found out that Hispanics account for a very substantial percentage of the population increase. What I found additionally interesting is how the Wilson County News out of Floresville, Texas refers to our part of the state. See for yourself:
During the upcoming 82nd session of the Texas Legislature, our lawmakers must redraw congressional district boundaries based on the 2010 census. The concentration of power naturally will increase in areas with Texas’ highest population densities: Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and the sweeping San Antonio-Laredo-Rio Grande Valley area.
