Assemblymember Marc Levine
It’s an honor to serve Marin and Sonoma in the Assembly. We’ve made great progress together, but there’s much more work to do. With your support, we will continue to put our schools, environment, and local communities first.

Legislator Offers to Pay for Rebuilding of Lopez Memorial

Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, has pledged to pay for the materials used to restore the fire-damaged memorial to Andy Lopez, the 13-year-old Santa Rosa boy fatally shot by a sheriff’s deputy in October.

“While none of us can make sense of this tragedy, it is appropriate and decent that we long remember him and celebrate his life through a memorial built in his name.”

Fracking Moratorium Urged by California Lawmakers

In an interview with The Bee, Levine said he hoped the Governor would defer continued fracking operations until regulators have finished the year-long process of laying down new fracking rules.

"I don't believe we have as much information as we need to continue allowing the oil industry to work unfettered before those regulations are in place," Levine said.

Marin Voice: North Bay Leads the Way for Plug-In Vehicles

We need to make these clean vehicles the norm and ensure that households in low-income communities, which are disproportionately impacted by vehicular pollution, benefit from this transition to clean vehicles. That's where the Charge Ahead California campaign comes in.

With a goal of getting 1 million electric vehicles on the road in California by 2020, this campaign is designed to make this critical, forward-looking goal a reality. We must fund clean vehicle incentive programs and craft policies that support meeting this goal.

Campaign News

Friends -

It’s hard to believe that more than a year has gone by since our first Assembly campaign! With your help, we won the biggest upset in the state in 2012. Our locally based campaign prevailed despite being outspent by 5 to 1. I couldn't have done it without you. 

Looking ahead to our 2014 reelection campaign, I wanted to share with you a few quick updates. 

Huffman and Thompson Endorse

I’m pleased to announce that Congressmen Jared Huffman and Mike Thompson have endorsed my reelection to the State Assembly. It’s a pleasure to work with these leaders on behalf of our North Bay schools, environment, and families.

Join Us for the Official Campaign Launch on Sunday, February 9, 2014

We are officially kicking off the reelection campaign on Sunday, February 9, 2014, at the Albert J. Boro Community Center at Pickleweed Park, San Rafael. We’ll have food, drinks, games for the kids, and more from 1 to 4 p.m. We hope you will join for an afternoon of fun and family. Please save the date!

Updates from the Legislature

During the 2012 campaign, I pledged to help change the dysfunctional culture in Sacramento.  Working with my new colleagues, we’ve made progress, passing a balanced budget, reinvesting in our schools and universities, and starting to think long-term about the future of our state.

In my legislative efforts, I’ve worked to protect the environment by eliminating single-use plastic bags, increasing the use of recycled water, and providing infrastructure for electric vehicles charging stations. I’ve also worked to increase access to higher education through online courses. There's still much more work to do.

Rookie Lawmakers in Capitol Surge

“'During the past years it really felt as though that Sacramento was looking out for making work easier for the Legislature, rather than being locally serving,’ Levine said.

‘Coming from a city council, it’s really important to me to restore the relationship between state and local government. The other goal I had was to change the tone and culture in Sacramento…to break the rigidity we have in the policy making.’”

State's Freshman Lawmakers Ready for New Era

“Assemblyman Marc Levine of San Rafael, a freshman Democrat elected under that new system, said he had already found that party rigidity ‘has a stranglehold on good and thoughtful policy’ in the state Capitol.

‘While Washington is making us look good right now, we need to make it better in Sacramento,’ he said.”
