On March 25, both houses of the New York legislature passed S3149, the National Popular Vote Plan bill. The vote in the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans, was 57-4. The vote in the Assembly was 100-32. This is the first state legislature to pass the plan since 2012, although the New York bill hasn’t been signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo yet.
Assuming the bill is signed, the plan will have passed in 7 eastern jurisdictions (New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Vermont, and D.C.); 3 western states (California, Washington, Hawaii); and one midwestern state, Illinois. It will have received 60% of the electoral votes it needs to get into effect.
