The Democrat and Republican redistricting plans are very different.
Nancy Rosenthal, president of the Nassau County League of Women Voters, said that her organization has submitted its own redistricting plan, which she hopes the Legislature will consider.

The Legislature has the final say on the maps, and has until March 5 to adopt a plan. Abrahams said he doubted that either plan would be adopted in its current form, and that much debate would take place over the next several weeks.

Norma Gonsalves, the Legislature’s presiding officer, said that there is still much work ahead. “We will be reviewing both maps and reviewing testimony obtained through the various commission meetings and legal obligations involved with redistricting,” she said. “We will do our due diligence to explore all factors involved with redistricting to meet the charter-mandated deadline of March 5.”
