Libertarian Party of New York Interim State Committee is the committee formed from the rules to govern the political entity of the Libertarian Party of New York.


On December 24, 2018, a set of rules were filed at the New York State Board of Elections, in which an Interim State Committee was documented in order to succeed a Transition Committee, to cover the period following the spring 2019 convention until the September 2020 Libertarian Party primaries. However, New York passed legislation in regards to many electoral laws, and the primaries were moved to June, and so the body convening would last until June 2020.

In early February 2019, an updated set of rules was compiled, which changed the Interim State Committee to cover the period from February 2019 to June 2020. This also changed the composition of the committee. The rules were presented and supported by the State Committee on February 10, 2019. To bridge communication between the two committees, a Liaison Subcommittee of the State Committee was established and Mike McDermott was appointed chair.


Note: Larry Sharpe served as Interim Chair in order to call the meeting to order, and then stepped down following the election of Chair Jim Rosenbeck.
