Senate Republican Leader Dean G. Skelos


 In November 2010, Senator Skelos was re-elected to his fourteenth term in the New York State Senate. He now serves as the chamber’s Majority Leader, making him the highest-ranking Republican official in State government.

Senator Skelos was also elected by his colleagues to be Majority Leader of the Senate in June 2008. Later that year, he sponsored and passed Senate legislation to enact a property tax cap in an effort to give New York taxpayers relief from high property taxes.   more >

    Equal Pay for Women

    My stance on this issue is crystal clear:

    • Pay discrimination against women has no place in New York State, and a law ensuring Equal Pay for Women is long overdue;
    • An end to pay discrimination will mean new opportunities for women across New York, enabling them to save, to succeed, and to pursue their hopes and aspirations -- both for themselves and their families; and
    • It’s time for Albany politicians to stop putting partisan politics first, and women second.



    If you agree, I hope you will join my campaign to enact an Equal Pay for Women Law without further delay. It only takes a few moments to sign up so that your voice can be heard.
