Assemblyman Robert Carroll

N.Y. Assembly
New York Assemblymember Robert Carroll was elected to the Assembly in 2016. He is the chair of the legislative commission on government administration and the chair of the subcommittee on museums and cultural institutions, and serves on six additional committees. Since being elected to the Assembly, he has introduced over 150 bills, 21 of which have passed both the Assembly and Senate, and 17 have become law.

Assemblymember Carroll has been a leader in the Assembly on a host of issues--from authoring a portion of the landmark Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act and advocating for its passage to sponsoring and passing two property tax abatement bills for solar energy, including the first in the nation abatement for solar energy storage equipment or batteries. He was also the author and prime sponsor of the Low Embodied Carbon Concrete Leadership Act, a first-in-the-nation bill to use the state's purchasing power to prioritize lower carbon concrete. Carroll is the prime sponsor of the New York Build Public Renewables Act, which would allow the New York Power Authority to take the lead in building, operating, and owning renewable energy projects in New York State and require all state-owned buildings to be powered by renewables by 2030 and municipally owned buildings by 2035.

A leading transportation and safe streets advocate, Assemblymember Carroll successfully advocated for a dedicated funding stream to fully fund the MTA, passed legislation to take dangerous drivers off the road, and passed the MTA Open Data Act, to bring more transparency to the MTA.

Assemblymember Carroll was born and raised in the 44th Assembly District in Brooklyn and attended P.S. 230 in Kensington as a child. He is a graduate of SUNY Binghamton and has a J.D. from New York Law School.
