A Message from Speaker Sheldon Silver

Speaker Sheldon Silver
Our nation's founders could never have envisioned the scope and breadth of the opportunities the Internet would provide to a participatory democracy. Your representatives in the Assembly "The People's House," are excited to enhance the public's connection to state government by making this site available to you.

Here you will have access to a wide range of information, including how your legislator voted on a bill, an explanation of the bill and its status in the legislative process, as well as information about New York State history and other state government matters.

One of the enduring legacies of a democracy is the critical role the people play in its operation. Therefore, we encourage you to visit our site often and take advantage of its many features that are aimed at keeping you connected to your state government.

We hope that your time on our site is productive, and we encourage you to visit often.
