Judge Releases NY Congressional Redistricting Maps
Proposed redistricting maps for New York’s congressional delegation have been released by a federal magistrate judge.
Judge U.S. Magistrate Roanne Mann’s plan is one of three proposed for reapportioning the districts across the state as determined by the 2010 Census. The State Assembly and Senate have released different plans and continue negotiations to come up with a compromise. If they are unable to do so, Magistrate Mann’s plan could be instituted, pending public hearings.
New York’s congressional delegation is being reduced from 29 to 27 because the population of the state grew more slowly than other states.
