In two states, politician commissions draw congressional district lines.
State legislative district lines are primarily the province of the state legislatures themselves in 37 states.
Despite the national trend toward Republican state legislatures during the presidency of Barack Obama (D), the New York State Assembly was resistant to that trend.
Assembly Democrats never fell below 99 seats during Obama's presidency.
Seven states have only one congressional district each, rendering congressional redistricting unnecessary.
Four states employ independent commissions to draw the district maps.
Democrats balked, saying it didn't make sense to add a seat in the chamber when slow population growth caused the state to lose seats in Congress.

The New York Constitution requires that two successive legislatures approve an amendment in order to qualify it for final approval by popular vote.
The legislature must approve the commission's plans by a simple up/down vote.
The legislature must reject two separate sets of redistricting plans before it will be able to amend the commission's proposals.
