More maps: Redistricting commission releases new draft Assembly maps, proposing big changes for southern Brooklyn


It’s the redistricting process that never ends! The state’s Independent Redistricting Commission last week unanimously voted to approve and release a new draft Assembly map that could make some big changes to Brooklyn’s representation in the lower chamber. 

New York’s once-a-decade redistricting process has stretched on for months as the parties battle it out over district lines — after the Independent Redistricting Commission failed to produce new maps for the state Senate, Assembly, and the House of Representatives by their deadline in January, the Democratic-majority state legislature took over and drew their own maps.
