Revised State Legislative Districts Unchanged

The Rivertowns are still proposed to be in the 35th state Senate district, and will also share the 92nd assembly district.

Updated state legislative maps released Tuesday by a special committee of lawmakers show lines that are nearly the same as the earlier versions released in .

The maps show that the Rivertowns will remain in the 35th district, which is currently occupied by Andrea Stewart-Cousins. 

On the state assembly side, Dobbs Ferry, Hastings-on-Hudson and Irvington residents will continue to be in a district 92 that is currently occupied by Thomas J. Abinanti.

Whether or not Gov. Andrew Cuomo approves the maps remains to be seen. According to the Albany Times-Union, Cuomo may veto the package because he feels that a proposed state constitutional amendment to reform the redistricting process doesn't take it away from legislators.

Meanwhile, a federal judge has taken control over the redistricting process for Congressional seats, having released her also alternate map (click here to find it in the docket sheet).

It's an outrage that Republicans in the NYS State Senate are planning to ADD A NEW SENATOR TO THE STATE PAYROLL. There are currently 62 State Senators in NY. Next year there will be 63. The same Senators voted to lay off employees who provide vital services. Now, they are creating another unnecessary patronage position (with additional support staff). A lack of priorities.
