Warren Mattice Anderson (October 16, 1915 – June 1, 2007) was Temporary President and Majority Leader of the New York State Senate. He was a resident of Binghamton, New York.

Anderson, a Republican, served as the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee from 1966 to 1972. In this capacity he was the unofficial deputy to then Majority Leader Earl Brydges. After Brydges retired, Anderson succeeded him as majority leader. Anderson worked with the Governor of New York Hugh Carey and Assembly Speaker Stanley Steingut to put together a package to rescue New York City from bankruptcy in 1975. [1]

He served in the Senate's top post until 1988, when he re-joined the law firm of Hinman, Howard & Kattell, LLP[2] in Binghamton, New York. In May 2006, Anderson announced his endorsement of former Assembly Minority Leader John Faso for the Republican nomination for governor.

In his role as Temporary President of the Senate, Anderson twice performed the duties of the Lieutenant Governor of New York. The first was from December 1973 to December 1974 after the resignation of Gov. Nelson Rockefeller elevated Lt. Gov. Malcolm Wilson to the governorship. The second was from February 1985 to December 1986 after Lt. Gov. Alfred Delbello resigned.

In 1978, Anderson was a candidate for the Republican nomination for Governor of New York, but lost the nomination to Perry Duryea.

Interstate 88, which runs from the Southern Tier to the Capital District, is named after the late Senator.
