State Representative Rene Oliveira has returned from Austin, Texas and says, that based on the population, there should be five additional Hispanic districts out of the 150 in legislation.
Out of the those five, he says the Valley should get one, but he says those five districts probably won't be given to Hispanics and that includes the one that should be in Hidalgo county. Oliveira says, there should be four new Congressmen seats and he is hoping for one in the Valley.
