Elected to the State Senate in 2012, Phil was named Chairman to the NYS Senate Task Force on Heroin & Opioid Addiction during his first term. This massive effort to make strides against the drug epidemic sweeping our state, held 18 statewide forums and brought unprecedented attention to the crisis. Eleven of these anti-heroin measures were passed with support from both parties, and signed into law by the Governor.
After re-election, Senator Phil Boyle was named Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development & Small Business – working tirelessly to ensure New York encourages business and promotes job growth, without hampering progress with red tape.
Animal Advocacy is one of Phil’s passions, and he has been presented with the Humane Legislator Award by The Humane Society of the United States in 2016 for his work combating cruelty to animals. He continues to work to modernize New York’s anti-cruelty laws and protect our animals.
