The judge responsible for drawing congressional district lines if New York state legislators fail to reach an agreement has unveiled her own proposed maps early Tuesday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Roanne Mann's maps would put all of Cayuga County in one district -- the proposed 24th Congressional District. The district would include all of Onondaga and Wayne counties, plus a portion of Oswego County.

The good news for U.S. Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle, R-Onondaga Hill, in the draft map is that Tompkins County would not be part of the district -- a heavily Democratic area that Buerkle and her supporters said should not be part of the district because of its location. Also, the new central New York district would contain all of Onondaga and Wayne counties -- areas in the current 25th Congressional District represented by Buerkle.

Mann's maps, like maps drawn by Assembly and state Senate leaders, would put U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Barneveld in a district that does not include Cayuga County. 

Here is the proposed map drawn by Mann that includes all of Cayuga County.
