Citizens Union will hold a news conference Friday to "address the emerging proposal to bring about an immediate solution and long-term reform to the state's redistricting process."
Former state AG Robert Abrams, the president of the organization, will take the lead.
This is the second tea leaf to emerge today on a redistricting deal. The other big sign: Senate Republicans are on the verge of dropping their lawsuit that challenges the state's law on counting prisoners at their last known address.
There are two obvious questions here: What is long-term reform? And what happens with the lines this year?
