House committee chairs analysis
I crunched through the committee chairs, and here's an analysis:
Ethnic: 4 African-Americans, 3 Hispanics
Party: 10 D, 30 R
Regional: 6 West Texas, 3 South Texas, 11 DFW, 10 Houston, 4 East Texas, 3 Central Texas, 3 San Antonio.
Regional is obviously very rough. I painted with a broad brush; for example, I included Victoria's Geanie Morrison in Houston's count.
