He rallied the chamber to pass bills and resolutions for an Executive-Legislative cooperation in economic reforms, which resulted in the Economic Summit of August 1993. It was during his term that the Senate adopted a policy to reimpose the death penalty for heinous crimes. He sponsored laws that resulted in the creation of the Commission on Higher Education and the Technical Education and Skill Development Authority, both of which enabled the Department of Education to focus on its main concern – basic education.

He authored the Magna Carta for Public Health Workers and was the principal author of the laws that created the new National Museum and the National Commission on Culture and the Arts.

He was re-elected to a fourth term in 2007, making him the longest serving senator in the post-EDSA revolution legislature. Angara authored or sponsored many laws including the Free High School Education Act,, the Generics Act, the law which created Philhealth, the original Senior Citizens Act, Agricultural and Fisheries Modernization Act, Government Procurement Act, and the Renewable Energy Act. He also sponsored the Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education, the biggest scholarship program.

Allegedly had an affair with Senator Loren Legarda. Seems like love can also happen inside the most heated floor in the country.
