Some of the legislative priorities during his Assembly years were lowering taxes, improving the economic development for small businesses, supporting our Armed Forced and veterans, removing unnecessary red tape, and protecting the Second Amendment right. Jones' legislative achievements include the introduction and co-authorship of "Made in America" legislation, which makes it easier for manufacturers to do business in California, legislation to support the expanding craft beverage industry in California, and legislation allowing non-motorized vehicles such as scooters, bicycles, and wheelchairs in skate parks. He became well known for his annual 2nd Amendment Awareness event, which educated his constituents on the Second Amendment rights and related state legislation and gave attendees opportunities to learn how to control a firearm safely or improve their accuracy.
