Texas District 9 of the United States House of Representatives is a Congressional district that serves the southwestern portion of the Greater Houston area in Texas. The current Representative for the district, since 2005, is Democrat Al Green.

Before 2005, the 9th covered an area stretching from Galveston through Houston to Beaumont. Much of that area is now the 2nd District. Most of the area now in the 9th was in the 25th District from 1983 to 2005.
