Schwarzenegger made his statement during a wide-ranging interview in the governor’s office. CUT: Arnold13b :13 Schwarzenegger also specifically rejected a compromise that would have coded the holder’s immigrant status on the license’s invisible magnetic strip. Democratic State Senator Gil Cedillo (suh DEE oh) has made the license issue his crusade. He says Schwarzenegger agreed late last year not to push for a visible identifying code. CUT: Cedillo07 :07 Governor Schwarzenegger says he remains optimistic that Senator Cedillo will “see the light” and agree to placing a visible identifier on any licenses issued to immigrants. SOC
