Scwharzenegger has given his support of Proposition 1, which would allow over $9 billion in funding for the beginnings of high speed rail in California (whiz between LA and SF in under three hours, they say). But earlier this week, he said he was not going to sign any bills (and some report that he will veto everything or some mix therof) until the legislature finishes the budget.

Well, yesterday, a bill that would strengthen Prop 1 passed the Senate so it should soon hit Schwarzenegger's desk. But he promised not to sign anything or veto some bills. But does that include what he supports and wants to see go through in November?
