Arnold Schwarzenegger held his first press conference as governor of California this morning . He said there would be budget cuts. When asked about the state´s budget deficit, he said he would not take a salary as governor.
“I´m going to cut my own salary,” he told reporters in Sacramento today. “I´m not going to take a salary. I´m going to start right away there and make that cut which is $175,000 and leave it in the general fund.”
