Linda B. Rosenthal was born on November 12, 1957 (age 65 years) in New York, United States. She is the daughter of parents who fled the Nazis in the 1930s. Rosenthal earned a B.A. degree in history from the University of Rochester in 1980.
Linda Rosenthal started working for US Congressman (for New York’s 10th congressional district) Jerry Nadler in 1993 and served as Manhattan District Director and Director of Special Projects. Prior to this, she worked in publishing.
Rosenthal was elected to the New York State Assembly in a February 2006 special election for District 67 between four candidates to replace Scott Stringer, who left the Assembly to become Manhattan Borough President. She won the November 2008 general election with 84.7 percent of the vote, and ran uncontested in the November 2010 general election.
In the Assembly, Rosenthal is the chair of the Housing Committee and sits on the Codes, Health, and Agriculture committees. In 2006, the New York State Legislature passed Assemblymember Rosenthal’s landmark legislation allowing court orders of protection to be extended to companion animals; it has also passed laws she proposed requiring applicants of public assistance to be provided with resources for victims of sexual assault, allowing for same-sex couples to adopt non-biological children, eliminating the state sales tax on feminine hygiene products; and prohibiting the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors.
In May 2015, fellow Manhattan Democrat Richard N. Gottfried tried to curb a bill introduced by Rosenthal that would allow customers to bring their dogs to outdoor restaurants, because Gottfried was afraid larger breeds would be able to grab food from tabletops.
Gottfried said: “Some dogs are tall enough that all they would have to do is turn their heads and they would be eating off people’s plates.” A similar bill that passed in California has not resulted in any problems, and the practice is also legal in Israel and some European countries, and common in Europe and in Los Angeles. The bill passed the Senate in May 2015 by a 60-0 vote.
In March 2016, following the State Legislature’s passage of her bill, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene issued an advisory allowing dogs to accompany human diners at restaurants that have outdoor seating, joining service dogs which were already allowed in virtually all situations.
In March 2019, Linda Rosenthal introduced a bill, A5040, that will ban the sale of fur in New York, by 2021. New York would follow California, which is in the process of legislating the ban.
In 2019, New York passed Rosenthal’s bill A1303B, the first statewide law to ban cat declawing in the United States. Assemblymember Rosenthal worked closely with the nonprofit animal advocacy organization, The Paw Project, to pass the bill.
In 2022, Rosenthal was the Assembly sponsor of the Adult Survivors Act (the Senate sponsor was Brad Hoylman). The bill established a one-year “lookback period” that allowed adult victims of sex abuse to bring civil suits that were previously barred due to the statute of limitations. It unanimously passed the Senate in April 2022, passed the Assembly on a 140–3 vote in May 2022, and was signed into law by Governor Kathy Hochul.
