The article informs that California's action-movie star turned governor is promising another action-packed year in state politics. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Wednesday night's state of the state address, signaled an aggressive agenda for 2005, promising to fight for four major reforms, including an overhaul to the state's "broken" budget system. The governor convened a special legislative session for consideration of his reform proposals, which would scrap the state's defined benefit pension system for future state and local government employees, weaken tenure for public school teachers and implement merit pay, and create a new system to draw boundaries for state lawmakers and the U.S. Congress.
