As an engineer, one of the few who has served in the Congress, the Congressman has special expertise in Defense and Energy technologies. In his four terms [1987-1995] as the Congressman for the First District of New York, he distinguished himself as a leader on issues critical to Long Island and our nation such as defense conversion and environmental protection. Hochbrueckner utilized his technical training as an Electronics engineer to address these issues while serving on the House Armed Services and Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committees for eight years. Hochbrueckner wrote and shepherded into federal law the provision gifting the 2,900 acre Calverton Navy Flight Test Center (currently named the Enterprise Park at Calverton - EPCAL) to Riverhead Township. With the end of the cold war and the changes in Europe, Hochbrueckner played a vital role on the Armed Services Committee. Hochbrueckner worked to maintain a strong defense and to protect Long Island's economic community, which relied heavily on the defense industry. He led the successful battle in 1989 to provide funding for the Long Island built Grumman F-14D "Tomcat" fighter aircraft.
