A Message from Senator John Flanagan

We welcome you to the new and improved official public website of the New York State Senate, a transformation two years in the making.

This groundbreaking tool for democracy provides users with fresh and interactive ways to make their voices heard and will better spark meaningful two-way dialogue between legislators and the constituents they represent.

Rather than simply broadcast messages to the public, our new website empowers you to more easily participate in your state government - - from tracking important bills in real-time to receiving periodic updates on issues you care deeply about.

In addition, the new format and design of this site conforms to all mobile devices, allowing you to watch live Senate events, committee meetings and public hearings wherever you are. 

A groundbreaking tool for democracy.

As always, you can find contact information for elected officials, review news releases and public calendars, or visit your own Senator's individual web page.

The website's information will be continuously updated, both during the Legislative Session and throughout the year. So we invite you to check back on a regular basis and sign up for new developments on a wide array of important state and local public policy issues.

We hope this website will help you access the information you need in a better and more efficient way. We appreciate your interest in the State Senate and the legislative process, and  be sure to let us know what you think.
