Schwarzenegger Seizes Reins of Power in Capitol

Los Angeles Times

"Schwarzenegger's raw assertion of executive power in repaying local governments for the billions lost when he repealed the vehicle license fee increase sent a clear message that he can govern without lawmakers' cooperation, a political reality that could leave the Legislature marginalized."

Given legislators' state of denial about the effects of their spending, an outside enforcer is necessary. Just the words "outside enforcer" bring to mind Arnie for me. Maybe that's just because it sounds like an action movie title.
