New York Overview
Redistricting Process: The state legislature is in charge of congressional redistricting in New York, and the governor has veto power over the final plan. New York’s legislature appoints a Legislative Task Force on Demographic Research and Reapportionment. The Senate majority leader and speaker of the House select one legislator and one private citizen each to serve on the Task Force. The minority leaders in each house appoint one legislative member each. The Task Force’s responsibility is to analyze the population figures provided by the census for the purpose of redistricting. It does not actually create a redistricting plan; it serves to advise the legislature as it develops the plan. The Legislative Task Force holds public hearings statewide where citizens can have questions answered and provide input to the Task Force that is then relayed to the legislature. The Task Force was established in 1978 through Chapter 45 of the New York State Laws.
Governor: Democrat Andrew M. Cuomo
