HEMPSTEAD - A state Assemblywoman from Hempstead proposed new legislation tonight in an effort to prevent the proposed Nassau County redistricting plan from taking effect.

Speaking to a room full of about 300 people, Assemblywoman Earlene Hooper (D-Hempstead) laid out her plan to block $300 million in state funding from coming to the county.

Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead) was also in attendance, but says he doesn't agree with Hooper's tactics. He wants to work with all communities in Nassau and says the county needs every dollar it can get.

Attorneys for both Democratic and Republican lawmakers were back in court today battling the redistricting plan, but a judge adjourned the case until Tuesday.
