Officers of the Senate

President of the Senate, Lieutenant Governor, Gavin Newsom
Under the State Constitution, the Lieutenant Governor serves as the President of the Senate. However, by law and custom the role of the President is extremely limited. He or she may be invited periodically to preside on ceremonial occasions, such as the opening of the Session. However, the only time the Lieutenant Governor is actually entitled to participate in the business of the Senate is in the case of a tie vote, when he or she casts the vote breaking the tie.

President pro Tempore, Kevin de León (D)
The President pro Tempore, who also serves as the Chair of the Rule Committee, is the actual leader of the Senate. He or she is elected by the Members at the beginning of each Session. The "Pro Tem" is the presiding office on the Floor, overseeing the appointment of committee members, assignment of bills, progress of legislation through the house, confirmation of gubernatorial appointees, and overall direction of policy. He or she is also the political leader of the majority party.

Majority Floor Leader, Senator William W. Monning (D)
The Majority Leader is chosen by the Majority Caucus, and serves as the main Floor manager for the President pro Tempore and Majority Party. He or she also is the chief assistant in political matters and strategy.

Minority Floor Leader, Senator Jean Fuller (R)
The Minority Leader (also known as the "Republican Leader") is the second-most powerful position in the Senate. Elected by members of the Minority Caucus, he or she speaks for the Minority Party, maintains its inner discipline, and works with the President pro Tempore to set the Senate's order of business.

Majority Whip, Vacant
Whips are essentially assistants to the political leadership of each party in the Senate. They are elected by their respective caucuses, and help count potential votes on matters which present particular party concerns.
