Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

ha_meg_whitman26.JPGRepublican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman said today that, if elected, she would use the veto pen "very aggressively" to stop the Legislature from doing work she said is off-task.

At a campaign stop at SynapSense Corp. in Folsom, Whitman said the Legislature has become a "bill factory" and should instead focus on California's budget crisis and other priorities.

She also said the state's next governor should buy a house in Sacramento and live in town, interacting more with lawmakers.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger flies back and forth to his house in Southern California or stays at a hotel by the Capitol.
