New York State Government is famous for its “three men in a room” way of doing business. The three men are the Governor, the Assembly Speaker, and the Leader of the State Senate.
This week there’s a new incarnation of the three men in a room.
That’s because Republican Dean Skelos of Long Island resigned as leader of the state senate on Monday after being brought up on federal corruption charges. He was replaced by a fellow Long Islander, Republican John Flanagan.
