In 2015, Gov. Doug Ducey appointed Tobin, a former Arizona House Speaker, to replace Arizona Corporation Commission Chairwoman Susan Bitter Smith, who resigned amid a conflict of interest challenge.

Tobin subsequently won election to the board that regulates electric, water and gas utilities and oversees other areas such as railroad crossings.

Tobin has had a rocky relationship with the other four commissioners, most recently debating what code of ethics the members should adhere to and whether the regulators should require electric companies to get more power from renewable energy sources like biomass.
