Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger may be getting Jerry Brown ready for office, but the governator says he is still a working man.
There is one Republican who has no qualms about working with President Barack Obama.
As Schwarzenegger tries to stay relevant as a lame duck politician, the governor has reached out to the Obama administration that any federal funds other states don't want, California will gladly take.
The actor-turned-politician wrote a letter Tuesday to Obama's Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, where he volunteered the state's wallet as a resting place for federal funds, while taking a shot at other governors.
"It is with a certain sense of astonishment that we note recent announcements from some of our gubernatorial colleagues that they are uninterested in federal contributions to their high-speed rail systems," Schwarzenegger wrote. "You are more than welcome to redirect that money to California -– where we know how to use it to generate hundreds of thousands of jobs and provide a clean, fast and low-cost way to travel."
Schwarzenegger may only have a short while left in office, but the governor says he is committed to work on California's $6-billion shortfall for the current fiscal year until he walks out of office.
