The final congressional map for New York State, will be voted on, this Wednesday, by the State Legislature, but here’s what we know at this point. If the map, that was released over the weekend, is approved by the state legislature, the 23rd Congressional District will be made up of the following counties: Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Steuben, Chemung and Tioga. Those counties are in the proposed new 23rd district, in their entirety. The following counties are partially in the newly proposed 23rd: Erie, Wyoming, Livingston, Yates, Schuyler, Broome, Chenango and Cortland.
Word is, the New York State Republican Party is pursing all legal options, to fight against this map passing. That’s because the congressional GOP will lose eight seats statewide.
The proposed maps for the state assembly members and state senators, has not been released yet.
