Sep 20, 2021 6:24 pm

Every ten years after the census, New York and other states must redraw the Congressional and State Legislative districts to reflect population changes. A decade ago, voters approved a constitutional amendment to try to make this more of an independent process rather than one determined by partisan political interests. Recently the commission established to oversee the process came up with 2 competing sets of maps for new Congressional districts, one drawn by the Democrats and the other by the Republicans. Blair Horner of NYPIRG talks with WOOC's Mark Dunlea about the next steps in the process.
