League of Women Voters wants Cuomo to use his veto pen

Friday, January 27, 2012 - 02:48 PM

Here's the relative statement from the League released this afternoon:

We expect that the public demand for reform shown over this last year allows for a unique opportunity in time to fundamentally alter the redistricting process in this state. The governor has publicly stated that these lines are unacceptable and he will consider a veto. We agree. The League will work with the governor and the legislature to realize lasting structural reform to this fundamentally flawed redistricting process. The certainty of achieving reform for 2022 is critical.
