SEN. LUCIO PLEASED FOR DECISION IMPACTING SOUTH TEXAS
AUSTIN, TX -- "Although it is disconcerting that the redistricting plan driven by Washington politics was not ruled completely unconstitutional for other parts of Texas, it is still comforting to know that the voting power of South Texas will be restored, and that our efforts in opposing the redistricting plan were finally recognized as valid.
It is incumbent upon the Federal District Court now to act expeditiously to restore these voting rights before the 2006 elections, and I hope that they do so."
