As the world’s second largest economy, California is home to a $3 trillion economy.
It is also home to an estimated 5,000 bridges.
That means that, in the span of one year, nearly 1,000 people have died and tens of thousands have been injured in California, and the state is in the midst of a severe transportation crisis.
But, as the story of California’s transportation crisis unfolds, the state’s infrastructure has become a focus of political, legal, and economic debate.
In this week’s episode, we look at what that means for the state.
A special guest joins us this week is former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Schwarzenegger served as Governor from 1999 to 2003 and was a Republican in the US Senate from 1995 to 1997.
His political career began as a conservative governor, but he switched to a more liberal party in the 1990s and became the first governor in California history to win the Democratic nomination for president in 1992.
Schwarzenegger has spent much of his political career advocating for transportation reform, and has called for a major infrastructure overhaul.
In 2017, he was elected Governor of California, a job that allows him to issue executive orders and make decisions on transportation funding.
California Governor Schwarzenegger speaks about the state of transportation at the California State Capitol in Sacramento, California, U.S., January 24, 2019.
He has proposed several measures that would overhaul transportation funding, such as a toll on the California-Oregon border, and also calls for a $25 billion increase in state revenue over the next two decades.
His proposed changes to transportation funding would raise an additional $10 billion over 10 years and $20 billion over 20 years, and would generate a net tax of about $5 billion a year, or about $1,300 a person.
While the state would receive more money in the short-term, many critics worry that such changes would leave California behind in its race to improve its roads.
In 2016, Governor Schwarzenegger said that California would need $1.2 trillion in additional funding by 2020, and in the past, he has said that he would not consider any funding cuts to the state until the state had more than $1 trillion in new infrastructure.
Schwarzenegger’s plan for transportation funding comes at a time when California’s economy is struggling to recover from a devastating wildfires that ravaged the state in 2015 and 2016.
The fires killed over 400 people, and more than 20,000 homes and businesses were destroyed.
As of January 19, 2018, California had recorded a total of 2,945 fatalities and 6,857 fires, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
The wildfires forced millions of people from their homes and caused significant economic damage.
The state’s governor announced on January 6 that he was postponing a January 1 deadline to start the rebuilding process and that the state was working on new funding plans.
This week, Governor Arnold is on the show to discuss how to fix the state transportation crisis, the California Governor’s plan to address the transportation crisis and the challenges facing the state to rebuild.

In 2014, he launched the Arnold Schwarzenegger State Road Fund, a $2 billion initiative to provide transportation funding for state agencies.
Schwarzenegger was a vocal proponent of a massive infrastructure investment during his time in office.
In 2015, he announced a $1 billion transportation plan that included $400 million for toll roads and $1 million for highway improvements.
He also proposed a new transportation levy that would raise the gas tax to help pay for the construction of new roads and bridges.
Schwarzenegger proposed a $10 million funding plan to build the Interstate 5 and California’s first toll road, as well as the Southern California Connector.
His $5 million funding proposal would fund the construction and maintenance of the L.A. Metro Rail, and he proposed a plan to replace the Los Angeles County Fire Authority with a regional agency to provide critical transportation services to Southern California.
In addition, Schwarzenegger has called on the federal government to provide more money to help repair and upgrade highways.
As a member of the California Assembly, Schwarzenegger proposed legislation that would require the federal transportation agency, the Federal Transit Administration, to create a program that would finance $10.2 billion in state highway and transit projects.
Schwarzenegger also proposed $10 and $50 billion for regional transportation funding and $15 billion for the California National Guard.
Schwarzenegger is one of the most vocal opponents of the Interstate 50 Bridge in Los Angeles.
Governor Arnold, center in this 2017 photo, said in an interview with The Associated Press that the Interstate bridge is the worst in the nation.
He said it is a massive highway, and is costing $1 to $3 billion a mile.
In a statement on January 18, Schwarzenegger said he was working with the California Highway Patrol to see if there were any
