On Tuesday, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick appointed State Senator Brian Birdwell (R-Granbury) to the Senate’s bi-partisan 2021 Senate Select Committee on Redistricting.
“I am honored to be selected to serve on the Senate’s redistricting committee, and will be a strong voice for the people of Senate District 22 as district lines are redrawn.” Birdwell said. “I am profoundly grateful to the Lieutenant Governor for the opportunity to serve on this important committee.”
