Assemblywoman has been listed as one of the Assembly’s most successful lawmakers in the Review of Legislative Action for New York’s 2012 session, prepared by the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG).
For the two-year legislative term, Assemblywoman Paulin ranked fourth among Assembly members for having introduced bills which passed both the Assembly and the Senate (32), placing her in the top 2.7% of members. In the 2012 session alone, sixteen of Paulin’s bills passed both houses and another twenty-nine were passed in the Assembly. She achieved these ranks despite not being listed among the legislators who introduced the largest number of bills -- indicating her efficiency in introducing successful legislation.
Assemblywoman Paulin has consistently been one of the most productive members of the legislature, ranking in the top 3% of Assembly members for bills passing both houses in both the 2010 and 2011 sessions.
“Throughout my time in the Assembly, I have always worked hard to pass legislation that will improve our community, and I am pleased that I have been able to accomplish these results,” Paulin said. “I appreciate NYPIRG’s work in assembling this report, which is a great step towards making government more transparent.”
