The article offers information on the vetoing of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of a measure that would have permitted 16 Indian tribes to join the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The bill, which was formulated by Lloyd Levine of Los Angeles, California, would have made the tribes voting members of the SCAG general assembly, but would have limited their participation to issues of planning, transportation, programs, and projects. The tribes still express their hope to have their needs considered when SCAG decides on high-speed rail projects.
