District Map | Website | FelixWOrtiz | @ Felixwortiz

Ortiz has represented his district in the Assembly for 20 years. His bill banning the use of handheld cell phones while driving became the first such state law in the entire country in 2000. Ortiz will continue his longstanding efforts to deter and punish distracted driving by introducing legislation to require disclosure of a driver’s cellphone records after a crash suspected to have resulted from distraction. He will also advocate for the creation of a protected bike “highway” along Third Avenue, connecting his district to Downtown Brooklyn.
