The latest in New York

Jan. 11, 2022

On Jan. 10, the New York state Senate and state Assembly overwhelmingly rejected the two proposed congressional maps submitted to them by New York’s bipartisan redistricting commission. The two maps were fairly similar, but the one proposed by Democratic commissioners would have created one more Democratic-leaning seat than the one proposed by Republican commissioners.

These maps were never expected to become law, however. Because the same party controls both the state Senate and state Assembly, a two-thirds vote is required in both chambers to adopt a map, and although Democrats do have a supermajority in both chambers, they seem to be holding out for a map that nets Democrats more seats. (It’s possible to draw a map that eliminates as many as five of the state’s Republican members of Congress.)

The redistricting process now returns to the commission, which will submit another map (or maps) to the legislature for another two-thirds vote within 15 days of the rejection (so by Jan. 25). If that map also fails to pass, the legislature can draw its own and pass it, likely with another two-thirds vote (although there is some ambiguity in the law that might allow a legislature-drawn map to pass with a simple majority).
