Professor Frank Publishes Op-ed on Schwarzenegger Legacy

Professor Richard Frank has published an op-ed on "The Legacy of Arnold Schwarzenegger" in the San Francisco and Los Angeles editions of The Daily Journal.  In the article, Frank takes issue with the notion that Schwarzenegger's tenure as California governor was a failure, pointing to key reforms of California's electoral process, worker's compensation system, judicial appointments, support for environmental protections including the landmark California Global Warming Solutions Act, and other accomplishments. 

"It is as California's most influential and effective ‘political reform' governor since Hiram Johnson a century ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger will leave his most indelible mark on California political history," writes Frank.

Frank, a 1974 graduate of King Hall, recently was named as founding Director of the new California Environmental Law and Policy Center at UC Davis School of Law.
