Albany, NY (June 8, 2011)
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the appointment of Assemblyman Jonathan Bing to serve as Special Deputy Superintendent of the New York Liquidation Bureau.
Most recently, Jonathan Bing was serving his fifth term in the New York State Assembly where he represented the 73rd Assembly District since November of 2002. During his eight years in office Assemblyman Bing has authored 70 pieces of legislation, 30 of which have been signed into law. His 2010 legislative successes included the law which provides for no fault divorce in New York State, ending the State's notoriety as the only jurisdiction in the nation without this provision. Continuing his efforts from past sessions to cut red tape for New York's small businesses, Assemblyman Bing authored two laws in 2010 that will reduce administrative burdens in the insurance and real estate brokerage industries.
The Assemblyman served on the Assembly's Health; Housing; Insurance; Judiciary; Social Services; and Tourism, Parks, Arts & Sports Development Committees. He was appointed Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Oversight, Analysis and Investigation in February 2011, after previously serving as the chair of the Committee on Libraries and Education Technology, the Legislative Task Force on People with Disabilities and the Subcommittee on Mitchell-Lama Housing.
Assemblyman Bing has received multiple awards in recognition of his service including the 2008 Hunter College Presidential Medal, a 2008 New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund Eco-Star award, and the 2005 Vanderbilt YMCA's Champion of the Year Award.
“Assemblyman Bing is an incredibly talented and committed public servant and I am pleased to welcome him in to our administration,” Governor Cuomo said.
