Class is in session: New state Senators, Assemblymembers get started in Albany


The 2023 legislative session has begun in Albany, and a host of new and returning state Senators and Assemblymembers from Brooklyn are settling in after a hectic election season. They’ll meet in Albany each week until June, when the session adjourns for the year.

The first week of the session is a little bit like syllabus week in college — leaders are appointed, legislators are sworn in, and committee assignments are handed out. Hearings and committee meetings will begin in the coming weeks.
