ICRC to meet in person

Wednesday, September 1, 2021 by Tai Moses

Starting with its next meeting – Wednesday, Sept. 1, at 6 p.m. – the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission will resume meeting in person as the members shift their focus to drawing preliminary maps using state census data. The reason for the shift to in-person meetings? Gov. Abbott’s executive order allowing the Texas Open Meetings Act exemption for virtual meetings expires on Sept. 1. ICRC Vice Chair Luis Gonzalez said, “The ICRC has made quick progress to abide by the new order to continue our critical work. We have reserved in-person venue space for all future general meetings starting on Sept. 1. Quorum requires that commissioners be physically present at these meetings, including both the chair and the vice chair, while a few will still have the option to connect virtually.”
