The governor and other leaders met with the president at the White House to discuss transportation investments.

Schwarzenegger says he's believes the president's plans will help boost the economy.

"I think there's a tremendous demand out there for this, and now is the best opportunity, and not only does it help to make our economy function better, but it also helps us in creating jobs," said Schwarzenegger.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell also attended the meeting.

Along with Schwarzenegger, they've formed a coalition called Building America's Future, which is designed to trigger national infrastructure investments.
