As Majority Leader, Senator Weinberg helps set the agenda for the Senate.
Senator Weinberg has had a distinguished legislative career.
She has sponsored laws generating $20 million for autism research, to prevent bullying, to require insurance companies to cover 48 hour hospital stays for new mothers, to lower the blood alcohol level for drunken driving to point 0.8 percent and prohibit smoking in most indoor public places and workplaces.
She sponsored legislation providing for fair pay practices modeled after the federal Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and sponsored legislation to allow for marriage equality.
She became a member of the Assembly in 1992. She was elected to leadership positions by her Democratic colleagues and served in that house until 2005 when she was appointed to fill a vacancy in the Senate. She was elected to a full term the same year and was re-elected in 2007, 2011 and 2013.
