Pearl River, NY, February 28 – After the Senate and Assembly having both voted in favor of a final version of New York’s Congressional Map, sending the legislation to Governor Kathy Hochul’s desk, Congressman Mike Lawler released the following statement.

“I was glad to see both the Senate and Assembly exhibit restraint when it came to their final map,” said Congressman Lawler.  “While there were numerous attempts throughout this process to engage in a partisan gerrymander, the final map largely abides by the New York Independent Redistricting Commission’s bipartisan version and ensures fair, competitive districts across the state.”

“Today’s bipartisan vote is a win for the voters and a win against partisan gerrymandering,” continued Lawler. “Now it’s on to November.”
