People in Austin and the Texas Hill Country may not have to continue vying for the same U.S. House seat, according to information from Congressman Chip Roy, who made stops in Kerrville on Friday.

Roy told attendees of two events that day there’s general agreement among the Republican delegation on a new map that doesn’t include the current slice of Austin in District 21, although he may still represent a portion of Hays County, where he lives. Roy’s district will be redrawn due to population increases since the last census.
