District Outlook
HD136 was ultimately created as a new, potentially safe Republican district in fast-growing Williamson County, north of Austin. During redistricting, it was evident that a new district would be created in Williamson County, but the point of contention centered on which district to re-locate from Harris County, due to that county being awarded one less district than the 2001 map. Initial efforts had been to relocate HD149 in Williamson, pitting two Democrats - Hubert Vo and Scott Hochberg - against one another. By the time Plan H283 made it out of federal court, however, incumbent Beverly Woolley had stated her intention to retire from the House. This allowed, in the eyes of the federal court, an easier opportunity to relocate Woolley's HD136 to Williamson and recognize the Section 2 issues of the Voting Rights Act to allow for distinct districts for Vo and Hochberg in Harris County.

2011 Redistricting

With the announced retirement of Beverly Woolley, the federal court opted to combine the core of the existing HD136 with the northern portion of HD133. The court's version of HD136 is now situated further westward, outside of and bordering Harris County. It would be an open seat. The partial agreement plan (H303) between the State of Texas and MALDEF would effectively place the core of HD136 into a newly formed HD133 and the numerical designation would transfer to what is effectively the current HD149.
