    SACRAMENTO, CA - JULY 28: California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger speaks to reporters after signing the state's budget solution on July 28, 2009 in Sacramento, California. The state's $24 billion budget includes $16.1 billion in spending reductions, and Schwarzenegger used line-item vetos to eliminate another $489 million in spending not approved by the legislature.

    Fresh off a trip to visit troops in the Middle East, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger told reporters his future plans won't include a sequel in politics.

    Schwarzenegger won't say what his plans are when his term expires next year, but it won't be running for another office. He never labeled himself as a politician, he told reporters in Milan, "so I am not going to run for anything else."

    Schwarzenegger says he will spend the next year trying to solve problems including a projected multibillion dollar shortfall in next year's budget.

    Schwarzenegger stopped by Milan en route from visiting troops in Iraq. He also visited his native Austria, where he saw the grave of his parents and ate a typical Austrian dinner that included Wienerschnitzel.
