Congressman David Dreier is expected to give details about Arnold Schwarzenegger´s transition team at a press conference today. The Republican from San Dimas is heading the team.
Schwarzenegger held his first press conference yesterday in Century City as governor-elect. He told reporters he was promised “a very smooth transition” by ousted Governor Davis. And he says he received similar assurances from other state leaders. He reiterated plans for an independent audit of the state´s books before revealing program cuts.
He also pledged to repeal the recent tripling of the car tax on his first day in office, said he´d sit down with Indian tribes to negotiate more casino revenues for the state. And, he promised again not to raise taxes.
