Census Numbers for the State of Texas To Be Released

Texas Census number are set for release Thursday afternoon.

The numbers are expected to show a huge growth in the Hispanic population in the state from 2000 to 2009.

Officials say estimates indicate more than 80 percent of growth in Texas came from minority populations.

These detailed demographics will be used to redraw boundaries for congress and the legislature.

Texas is getting four new Congressional seats, more than any other state. Hispanic leaders say more Latino-dominated seats should be drawn.
