The chaos on the New York State Senate floor started just after three o'clock yesterday afternoon, when Senator Tom Libous introduced a motion to reorganize the leadership of the State Senate wrenching control back from Democrats who had taken a slim two-vote majority in November's election.

It was the first time the Democrats had control of the chamber in four decades. By last night both parties were claiming control. To help make some sense of all what's happening in the Senate, Karen DeWitt joins us from Albany.
