Welcome Letter

Dear Neighbor,

Welcome to my New York State Assembly Web Page. You can use this page to easily access information about my work in Albany, as well as news regarding our community. You will also find here the legislation I sponsor, the committees I sit on and the contact information to reach me.

I look forward to another productive year representing our community in Albany. I will keep fighting for what is best for my constituents and the great State of New York. I will continue to stand up for Westchester families by working my hardest to reform government, improve schools, deliver tax relief, keep families safe, improve healthcare, and protect our environment.

Please browse around the rest of the site for more information on the issues facing our community and state. If you have a question or concern, or simply want to express your view on an issue, please email me at paulina@nyassembly.gov or call my district office at (914) 723-1115.

A full-time legislator, Assembly Member Paulin annually ranks among the state’s most productive and successful lawmakers.

As one of the most prolific legislators in the Legislature, over 350 of her bills have been signed into law to date. Among her most important legislative accomplishments include writing and sponsoring the bill that eliminated the statute of limitations for rape, sponsoring the landmark Trafficking Victims Protection and Justice Act, which dramatically toughened penalties for traffickers and buyers while providing support to the victims of human trafficking to help rebuild their lives, and authoring the Birth Control Access Act, which greatly expanded access to birth control for New Yorkers by allowing pharmacists to both prescribe and dispense hormonal contraception.
