InfoUnited States Senator Charles E. Schumer is in his first term representing New York State. He currently serves as a member on the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs; the Judiciary Committee; the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and the Rules Committee, and as Chairman of the Administrative Oversight and the Courts Subcommittee and the Economic Policy Subcommittee. Before his election to the Senate, Chuck represented the Ninth Congressional District in Brooklyn and Queens for eighteen years. Before that, he represented the Forty-Fifth Assembly District in Brooklyn for six years.

A product of the Brooklyn public schools, Chuck, 51, is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School. He was elected to the New York State Assembly at age 23 -- making him one of the youngest members since Theodore Roosevelt -- and to Congress at 29. In 1998, Chuck became New York's junior Senator. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Iris Weinshall, and their daughters, Jessica and Alison.
