LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - State Representative Joe Heflin is inviting his constituents to attend a joint hearing of the House Committees on Redistricting and on Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence scheduled in Abilene on Wednesday, October 27, beginning at noon. The redistricting process will affect how West Texas is represented for the next 10 years, both in Austin and in Washington, D.C.
