The New York State Legislature on Sunday released new maps for the state’s congressional districts, showing new lines that could nearly shut out the Republican Party in the state.

The new maps, brought on by population changes found in the 2020 Census, were released by the Legislature after the bipartisan Independent Redistricting Commission, made up of an equal number of Democratic and Republican appointees (intended to prevent partisan gerrymandering).
