The Senate and Assembly are preparing to release a second version of their legislative lines.
They haven't released the maps themselves, but the language that would make it become law is available on the Senate's website.
It does not appear that much has changed. Assemblyman Ken Blankenbush would still go into Oneida County (though he appears to get some more of St. Lawrence, which, at first blush, appears to separate Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney from Assemblyman Peter Lopez).
And St. Lawrence County would still be split among seven state representatives — four Assembly, three Senate. That's despite the fact that just about every elected official there was enraged by LATFOR's initial proposal.
Round No. 2 won't mend many fences in the north country.
The Assembly and Senate would have to vote to approve these maps, and Gov. ANdrew M. Cuomo would have to sign them into law.
