A Message From Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos

To All New Yorkers,


Welcome to the official web site of the New York State Senate. The new year of 2011 brings important changes and challenges to our State government, and to the State of New York as a whole. 

The members of  the State Senate will be working closely with our new Governor Andrew Cuomo and the members of the New York State Assembly to meet the significant challenges that lie ahead.

The people’s priorities must be our priorities.  That means balancing the state budget, closing the deficit, easing the burden on taxpayers, and doing everything we can to strengthen our economy and create private sector jobs.
