Scope and Content Note

This series consists of archival copies of the publicly accessible Web sites of the New York State Assembly. Researchers should note that, owing to the limitations of Web archiving technology, efforts to copy the main site prior to mid-2008 were not successful.

B2135-07: This accretion consists of a copy of the New York State Assembly Public Legislative Information site produced on December 22, 2006 shortly before Governor George E. Pataki (1995-2006) left office. It contains the top page of a portal to information about the Legislative session of 2005-2006. Researchers should note that, owing to the site's structure and the limitations of Web archiving technology, only the home page could be captured properly.

B2135-08: This accretion consists of a copy of the main New York State Assembly Web site produced on June 6, 2008, shortly after the resignation of Governor Eliot L. Spitzer (2007-2008). It contains information about, notices of public meetings, reports (2005-2008), and other materials created by numerous Assembly committees, including Ways and Means, Local Governments, Consumer Affairs, Labor, and Governmental Operations. It also includes news releases (2000-2008) and other information concerning legislative commissions, Assembly committees, subcommittees, task forces, and other entities. The Rules of the Assembly, a section on the World Trade Center attacks (2001-2008), press releases from the Assembly Minority Leader, (2005-2008), general information about the state capitol building, and a children's section are also included.

In addition, this copy contains information about individual Assembly members who held office at the time this copy was produced. Each member has a page that consists of a brief biography, a list of legislation that he or she sponsored, information about his or her committee memberships, and links to press releases issued by his or her office.

B2135-10: This accretion consists of a copy of the Assembly Web site produced on December 25, 2010, shortly before Governor David A. Paterson (2008-2010) left office.
