NEW YORK -- The new Congressional Election District lines for New York State won't be finalized for a few days, but it appears that lines drawn by a federal judge will likely become the final maps. State lawmakers on both sides have no serious objections, and are not expected to change the proposed lines.
The new districts, drawn on March 6th by a U.S. magistrate, call for the elimination of the Hudson Valley's 22nd District, and the 9th District, which covers parts of Queens and Brooklyn.
Both Republicans and Democrats say they're making plans for the primaries in June based on the new lines.
