The New York State Senate is one of two houses in the New York State Legislature and has members each elected to two-year terms. The state Constitution provides that the default membership be fifty members. However, it also provides that if any county would by virtue of its population be entitled to more than three Senators, then the first three Senators would count towards the limit of fifty, while the remainder would be in addition to the fifty.

The Senate is headed by its President, a post held ex officio by the State Lieutenant Governor. The Senate President has only a casting vote. More often, the Senate is presided over by the Temporary President, who is also the Majority Leader.
