<p>SACRAMENTO (AP) &mdash;A statue of a smiling Gov. Ronald Reagan was revealed in California&rsquo;s state Capitol rotunda on Monday.</p>

<p>The image of the former Republican governor and president is preserved in 800 pounds of bronze and stands nearly 8 feet tall.</p>

<p>Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed legislation authorizing the statue&rsquo;s construction in 2012 using private funds with overwhelming bipartisan support.</p>

<p>Reagan is the only California governor who has gone on to serve as president of the United States. He was elected governor for two terms in 1967 and 1971.</p>

<p>George Shultz, who served for more than six years as Reagan&rsquo;s secretary of state in Washington, spoke at the ceremony Monday.</p>

<p>Shultz says Reagan&rsquo;s outsize legacy persists because his ideas worked, and that today&rsquo;s leaders should model his effective negotiation techniques.</p>
