'Green' Governor's Budget Cuts Threaten Public Transit

Hosted by

Since last year, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been getting international news coverage as America's number one warrior in the fight against global warming. Today Mayor Villaraigosa announced what he called "the most ambitious climate change plan by a major American city."  Both want to reduce greenhouse gases by getting drivers out of their cars, but the Governor's latest budget cuts funding for public transportation, and the MTA is about to raise fares significantly on buses and subways. Aslo, whatever happened to statewide high-speed rail?
