Speaker's Biography:

Bill  Lockyer Bill Lockyer
California State Treasurer

Bill Lockyer was elected California State Treasurer in 2006. His stated priorities are to invest taxpayer funds prudently, to ensure accountability and oversight on infrastructure projects funded by voter-approved bonds, and to work with the governor and legislature to put California back on sound fiscal footing. From 1999 to 2006, Lockyer served as state attorney general, creating the nation's most sophisticated DNA forensic crime laboratory. He also cracked down on Medi-Cal fraud, securing hundreds of millions of dollars in court-ordered restitution and penalties; established the Megan's Law Web site; and recovered billions of dollars for defrauded energy ratepayers, consumers and taxpayers. He previously served for 25 years in the California State Legislature, ending his career there with a stint as Senate president pro tempore. In that position, he crafted agreements to balance the state budget and reform government programs. A graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Lockyer received a law degree from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law.
