Since he was first elected, he also served as the Vice-Chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee with jurisdiction over the legal profession, the courts, and most state governing codes. In addition, he served on all of the financial committees, with responsibility for all state spending and revenue, quickly earning a reputation for expertise in government fiscal affairs such that he was twice appointed by the Association of California Cities – Orange County to teach government finance and budgeting to local elected officials at UCI.
