Nelson said all will have to consider the Jan. 20 ruling by the
U.S. Supreme Court in Perez v. Perry.
"The New York Senate lines will probably be challenged under the
Voting Rights Act by minority groups, good government group and
others,” Nelson said. “In Perez they have been ordered to form
interim lines because while [the Texas Legislature’s] lines have
not been precleared, they also have not been ruled illegal."
