InfoJeffrey David Klein was born in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx on July 10, 1960. A lifelong resident of the northeast Bronx, he was educated in Bronx public schools. Klein went on to receive his B.A. with honors from Queens College, an M.P.A. from Columbia University, and a J.D. from the City University of New York Law School where he was also a member of the law review.
A former chief of staff to Congressman James Scheuer, Jeff Klein was first elected to the Assembly in the fall of 1994 to represent the 80th Assembly district, consisting of the Pelham Parkway, Morris Park, Van Nest, Pelham Bay, Van Cortlandt Village, Norwood and Bedford Park neighborhoods. Klein is also a partner in the law firm of Klein Calderoni & Santucci, LLP.

Jeff Klein has authored numerous laws that directly impact the citizens of New York including measures to protect the thousands of senior citizens and working families who live in Mitchell-Lama housing. He also passed legislation strengthening homeowner protections against blockbusting real estate solicitations and creating New York?s Do Not Call telemarketing registry which has enrolled almost two million residential telephone customers since its April 2001 inception.

Assemblyman Klein?s efforts on behalf of consumers have included annual monitoring of unsanitary conditions in New York City supermarkets (the Enough to Make You Sick series) and authoring legislation requiring supermarkets to post their state inspection results. He also uncovered a widespread problem of disabled motorists being overcharged for full-service gasoline (Stranded at the Pumps) and passed a new law requiring stations to post signs informing disabled drivers of their rights.

As Chair of the Committee on Oversight, Analysis and Investigation, Jeff Klein focused national attention on security conditions at New York City water facilities and passed tough legislation requiring water supply facilities to update their emergency plans to address the threat of terrorism. He has also worked to reduce government waste by demanding a more detailed accounting of state computer systems and information technology spending.

Jeff Klein has passed important legislation reducing children?s access to cigarettes and saved New York taxpayers millions of dollars by targeting cigarette smugglers and online smoke shops that, as detailed in his Up In Smoke report, evade lawful city and state cigarette taxes and fail to take precautions necessary to prevent sales to minors.

Assemblyman Klein has been on the front lines of the fight against childhood asthma which afflicts one out of every six Bronx children. To help reduce skyrocketing hospitalization rates, Klein started a mobile asthma screening and testing program. This program, the first of its kind in New York State, now travels to school and community events with a fully-equipped medical van bringing desperately needed on-site asthma screening and education directly to children and their families.

Klein also helped launch an innovative child abuse treatment program at St. Barnabas Hospital that uses state-of-the-art equipment and coordinates case management among health care professionals, social services agencies and law enforcement to deliver comprehensive care while minimizing the trauma caused by repetitious examinations and interviews.

Assemblyman Klein sponsors a variety of programs for Bronx senior citizens, including free health care screenings, crime prevention programs and an annual Senior Day at the New York Botanical Gardens.
