SACRAMENTO, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger says he plans one or more special legislative sessions before December to push his promised reforms.
In his first official visit to Sacramento since his Oct. 7 election, Schwarzenegger held a series of friendly meetings with legislative leaders and reached into the ranks of state lobbyists for a key member of his staff, the Los Angeles Times said Thursday.
He announced that he has selected Patricia T. Clarey, a longtime aide to former Gov. Pete Wilson, to serve as his chief of staff.
The governor-elect told lawmakers he wants one or more special legislative sessions by the end of November to consider repealing an illegal immigrant drivers' license bill, revising a workers' compensation measure and restructuring the state's billion-dollar debt-financing plan.
"Action, action, action, action -- that's what people have voted me into this office for," Schwarzenegger told reporters.
