Along with proposing new maps for the state’s congressional districts, a federal court also released final interim maps for the state’s legislative districts Wednesday.
The court in San Antonio released draft versions of the state House and state Senate district maps last week and had asked parties involved in the lawsuits to comment on them. State Republicans have discussed going to the US Supreme Court to block the maps from being implemented for next year's elections.
The final version of the House map contained no changes in Tarrant County lines compared to the draft released last week.
The three senate districts in Tarrant County -- 9, 10 and 12 -- all saw small shifts in their borders.
Most of the changes united smaller cities that had been divided into two districts under the first draft of the map.
Mansfield, which had been spit between Districts 9 and 10, is now entirely in District 10, currently represented by state Sen. Wendy Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat.
Haltom City and Keller, previously split between Districts 9 and 12, are now entirely in District 9, currently represented by Arlington Republican Chris Harris, who is not running for another term.
Grapevine was entirely in District 9 under the draft version of the map but is split in two in the final version, with the northern part of the city placed in District 12, currently represented by Flower Mound Republican Jane Nelson.
Watauga was also moved from District 12 to 9 under the new map.
