what do the initials after a State Senator or State Assemblyperson's name mean?

example: (R C IP RFM)

I'm guessing the first initial is for the party they belong to, but what about the others? any thoughts?

  • Can you quote an example? Please provide the name of the legislative body that the person is a member of. – Jasper Mar 12 '19 at 0:45

They are all party affiliations:

R — New York Republican Party
C — Conservative Party of New York
IP — Independence Party of New York State
RFM — Reform Party of New York

(New York is one of seven states that still practice electoral fusion in the legislature.)
