Texas re-redistricting not a sure thing

The Republican leadership in the Texas Legislature is making plans for hearings around the state on re-redistricting, according to the San Antonio Express-News. But the Houston Chronicle says the hearing room reservations were cancelled. The Governor is not saying when or if he will call a special session, the Dallas Morning News reports.

If Gov. Rick Perry calls a special session for re-redistricting the Congressional seats, getting it through the Senate may be a problem. The Austin American-Statesman has a useful guide to the possible defectors among the Democrats here. The problem for the GOP is that a 2/3 majority is needed to get consideration of a bill in the Senate.
