Marc Levine was first elected to the California State Assembly in 2012 to represent the North Bay area outside of San Francisco, which includes Marin and Sonoma counties. As an Assemblymember, Levine successfully authored over 80 laws leading state and national efforts to prevent gun violence, increase access to mental health services, and promote responsible and compassionate immigration policies.
During the Assembly’s 2021-2022 session, Levine authored legislation to promote health equity and mitigate the disparate impact of prostate cancer on certain populations. His bill proposed to enhance access to prostate cancer screening by prohibiting insurers from requiring cost sharing for PSA testing and digital rectal examinations for men who are 55 years of age or older or 40 years of age or older and high risk.
In the Assembly, Levine became an influential leader with a track record of protecting the state’s fragile environment, expanding access to education, combating food insecurity by enhancing access to California’s rich agricultural bounty, and supporting economic development and job creation. He authored notable legislation and became a respected voice on various public policy issues including: addressing the state’s fiscal crisis, preventing gun violence, expanding access to healthcare, increasing investments in public education, fighting the climate crisis, energy regulation, insurance reform, investing in road, highway, bridge and transit infrastructure, criminal justice reform and developing a sustainable statewide water plan that supports farms, families, businesses and the environment.
Levine began his career of public service in 2009 when he was elected to the San Rafael City Council where he focused on smart growth, environmental protection, expanding access to parks and economic development.
Levine earned a BA in Political Science at California State University, Northridge and a Master’s Degree in National Security Affairs from the Naval Postgraduate School. Levine lives in Marin County with his wife Wendy and their two children.
