InfoHillary Diane Rodham Clinton

Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected to the United States Senate by the people of New York on November 7, 2000. She serves on the Special Committee on Aging, the Environment and Public Works Committee, HELP (Health, Education, Labor and Pensions) Committee, and the Armed Services Committee -- the first New York Senator to do so. She was also selected in 2003 to chair the Senate Democratic Steering and Coordination Committee, responsible for outreach to communicate with the public about key issues before Congress.

Since the tragic events of September 11, Senator Clinton has been working tirelessly to ensure that New York has the resources it needs to rebuild, fighting to secure more than $20 billion in federal funds, and leading the call for health monitoring of those who worked at Ground Zero. In the past year she has worked equally hard making sure that the funds meant for future homeland security needs make it to the communities that need them.


Senator Clinton is a strong advocate for New York families and a powerful voice for Democratic principles. She has worked hard to promote jobs and economic growth, preserve the environment, improve educational opportunities and provide quality health care.

As a Senator, she has won passage of legislation to protect food safety and to improve drug research, focusing on the particular vulnerabilities of children; to enhance protection at nuclear power plants; to guard against the potential threat of radiological "dirty" bombs; and to strengthen security along New York and America's northern border. She is the chief sponsor of legislation to create Homeland Security Block Grants to provide direct aid to firefighters, police and local communities who are on the front lines of our homeland defense.

National security, homeland security and economic security are at the top of Senator Clinton’s legislative agenda. She believes that America's military should have the necessary resources, training and equipment to remain the most powerful force on Earth. In 2003, she visited troops in Iraq and Afghanistan to see first-hand the challenges they face. She also worked at home to support veterans and to protect the resources they deserve.

With the economy a primary concern for New Yorkers, Senator Clinton has worked to promote job creation throughout the state. The first legislation introduced by Senator Clinton was a package of bills to expand the upstate New York economy. She continues her work to increase investment in technologies such as broadband, create regional skill alliances and promote business incubators.

On a national level, she has been a strong advocate for responsible economic policies and the kind of fiscal discipline that led to the extraordinary growth and prosperity that was achieved during the administration of her husband, President Bill Clinton. As Senator Clinton has said, "We must pass a budget that keeps paying down the debt, provides sensible tax cuts and invests in priorities that matter to the people we represent."

The first First Lady ever elected to the United States Senate, Hillary Clinton is also the first woman elected statewide in New York. As First Lady, she was recognized internationally as an advocate for democracy, religious tolerance and human rights. She is now the Honorary Co-Chair of Vital Voices, a program begun while she was First Lady to increase the participation of women in the political and economic life of their countries.

A champion for women and girls, Senator Clinton has worked to increase access to health care, including reproductive health care, for women around the world, and to protect the right to choose here at home.

Hillary Rodham Clinton was born in Chicago, Illinois on October 26, 1947, and graduated from Wellesley College and Yale Law School. She was appointed chair of the Legal Services Corporation by President Jimmy Carter in 1977, and served as chair of the American Bar Association Committee on Women in the Profession in 1987. From 1986 to 1991, Hillary Clinton was chair of the board of the Children's Defense Fund.

Senator Clinton’s memoir, Living History, was published in June, 2003 and became an immediate best seller, with more than one million copies sold in the first month. She is also the author of It Takes A Village, and Other Lessons Children Teach Us; contributing almost $1 million of the proceeds to charities dedicated to children and families; Dear Socks, Dear Buddy, benefiting the National Parks Foundation; and An Invitation to the White House, with proceeds going to the White House Historical Association.

Even before her election to the Senate, Hillary Clinton was a leader in supporting the election of Democrats to office. She campaigned around the country for her husband, President Bill Clinton, in 1992 and 1996. She has traveled extensively on behalf of Democratic candidates, speaking on behalf of their campaigns, and working to encourage voter turnout. In the 2002 cycle, she headlined more than 150 events for candidates and parties. She is now Honorary Chair of HILLPAC, which contributed more than $1.3 million to candidates and parties in the 2002 elections.

Senator Clinton and President Clinton live in Chappaqua, New York.
