New York State Legislature

New York State Legislature is the two houses that act as the state legislature of the U.S. state of New York. The New York Constitution does not designate an official term for the two houses together. It says only that "legislative power is vested in the state senate and state assembly. Legislative elections are held in November of every even-numbered year. Both Assembly members and Senators serve two-year terms.

The Assembly consists of 150 members; they are each chosen from a single-member district. The Senate, in accordance with the New York Constitution, varies in its number of members, but currently has 63.

New York's Legislators

- OR -

Representatives to the N.Y.S. Legislature are allocated by virtue of a state's and, subsequently, subordinate jurisdiction's population. Oftentimes, due to those population constraints; legislative districts (ADs and SDs) are not apportioned to contiguous land masses, political borders, zip codes, etc. within a state. Brooklyn is a prime example of that limitation since several of Brooklyn's congressional districts are split up.
