The article reports on the proposal of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to authorize 68 billion dollars of infrastructure bonds. Robert Oaks, aide to co-sponsor of the Senate bond measure Senator Tom Torlakson, asserted that the proposals could draw in oppositions but he added that they are trying their best to have the proposals approved. On the other hand, analysts assert that the proposals were different from those backed by Democratic lawmakers.
