House District 47 represents a large area of Far Western Austin, as well as a tiny slice of the southern part of the city near Manchaca.
House District 49 stretches from Sunset Valley and into Northern Austin, covering much of the area west of IH 35.
House District 51 covers a large swath of Southeast Austin, including ABIA and Circuit of the Americas.
