Under the maps, House District 4, currently represented by Congressman Ralph Hall, would still include all of Hunt and Rockwall counties and a wide swath of Northeast Texas.

Bob Deuell’s State Senate District 2 would still include Hunt, Delta, Fannin, Hopkins, Rains, Rockwall and Van Zandt Counties and most of eastern Dallas County.

And State House District 2, represented by Dan Flynn, would include Hunt, Hopkins, Rains and Van Zandt counties.
