To qualify as a candidate you must be a resident of New York for at least five years and a resident of the district for one year prior to the election. Both the Senators and the Assembly members serve two year terms. There are 150 Assembly members and currently 63 Senators. The constitution allows the number of senate seats to vary. The New York session lasts for two years. So legislation introduced in Jan of 2019 may be considered until the end of 2020. Session begins in January and runs through the end of June.
