InfoAssemblyman Steve Englebright's background in science and education brings an essential perspective to the State Legislature. As a geoscientist, Englebright spent his early career as founding director of the Museum of Long Island Natural Sciences at SUNY at Stony Brook. During those years, Englebright honed his ability to translate complex technical concepts into engaging and informative programs geared for the general public.

As a state legislator, Englebright's ability to articulate complex scientific issues has made him successful in shaping state public policy that has practical relevance to our lives. For example, the passage of his Solar Choice Act is accelerating development of alternative electrical energy sources and his Pesticide Use Registry Act is advancing study of the probable link between pesticides and breast and other cancers.

First elected to public office in 1983, Englebright served in the Suffolk County Legislature for five terms where he led the effort to protect Suffolk's groundwater, the Pine Barrens, other unique natural areas, and to limit non-biodegradable packaging. As chief architect of the County's Water Quality Protection and Open Space programs, Englebright's land-acquisition strategies doubled the size of Suffolk's Park System, making it the largest of any county in the U.S.

Steve Englebright was elected to the State Assembly in a special election in February of 1992. Since then, Assemblymember Englebright has fought for educational excellence for our children, lower taxes, access to quality affordable health care and to keep college accessible for working families.

Recently appointed as the Chair of the Assembly Committee on Aging, Assemblyman Englebright has been aggressively advocating for important senior-related programs and increased funding for quality staff in nursing homes, home health aides, respite care, adult day programs, and more affordable prescriptions. Among his major objectives as Chair of the Aging Committee is to improve the support mechanisms that enable older New Yorkers to maintain the independence that comes with continuing to live in their own homes.

Assemblyman Englebright has been a consistent voice for additional education funding on Long Island to our local schools to improve standards. As a result, schools in his district have received increasing levels of aid each year during his tenure, offsetting the need to raise property taxes. Englebright has also fought to keep college affordable for the children of working families. His support for higher education twice earned him the Student Association of the State University (SASU) Legislator of the Year award (for the years 1998 and 2000).

An advocate for issues of concern to women and children, Assemblyman Englebright has a solid record on reproductive choice, insuring HMO's properly cover the full extent of women's health needs, and has recently passed a new law to fight breast cancer by doubling the state's annual commitment to breast cancer research and education. Assemblyman Englebright also created the Healthy Schools Initiative, a comprehensive series of measures to protect children from exposure to toxic and hazardous substances while at school or day care.

Assemblyman Englebright's interest in protecting the natural character and cultural heritage in his district is exemplified by his authorship of the Long Island North Shore Heritage Area Act, which offers protection of the entirety of the 4th Assembly district and the historic NYS Rte 25A corridor by its designation as a state heritage area.

The 4th Assembly District is situated on the north shore of Long Island and encompasses the historic maritime communities that developed around the harbors of Stony Brook, Setauket, Port Jefferson and Mt. Sinai, in addition to Port Jefferson Station and segments of Centereach, Selden, Holtsville, and Ronkonkoma.

A Setauket homeowner since 1973, Assemblyman Englebright has two daughters, Christina Marie and Jennifer Lynn. Assemblyman Englebright is a graduate of Bayside High School, received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Tennessee in 1969 and a Master of Science degree in Paleontology/Sedimentology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
