FUND LIGHT RAIL NOT WAR VO/SOT

LIVE: AS SACRAMENTO CELEBRATED 20 YEARS OF LIGHT RAIL SERVICE NEAR THE STATE CAPITOL, PROTESTORS URGED THE AREA'S CONGRESSWOMAN TO STOP IRAQ WAR FUNDING IN FAVOR OF FUNDING LIGHT RAIL AND OTHER INFRASTRUCTURE AND SERVICES IN THE UNITED STATES.

SUPER: TODAY/CATHEDRAL SQUARE/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:25) THE ACTIVISTS FROM SACRAMENTO COALITION TO END THE WAR STOOD SILENTLY BY WITH THEIR SIGNS CALLING ON HER TO FUND LIGHT RAIL AND NOT THE WAR. SHE TOLD THE PROTESTORS SHE AGREED THAT LIGHT RAIL SHOULD BE FUNDED RATHER THAN THE WAR. PROTESTORS CONTEND SHE AND DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS HAVE DISAPPOINTED AMERICANS WHO VOTED TO CHANGE THE CONGRESS TO A DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY BUT HAVEN'T PRODUCED ANY DIFFERENCE IN IRAQ POLICY.

SUPER: UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVE DORIS MATSUI/D-SACRAMENTO

SOT: (:29)

SAYS: "IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE GOVERNMENT PROCESS AND I HOPE YOU DO. YOU NEED THE VOTES, WE DON'T HAVE THE VOTES, BUSH CAN VETO THE BILL. HE HAS ALREADY, AND I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND WE'RE TRYING TO GET 290 VOTES IN THE HOUSE, THE SENATE IS EVEN WORSE, THEY HAVE TO GET BEYOND 60 FOR THE FILIBUSTER ... BUT REPUBLICANS DID IT IN '95 AND THEY HAD FEWER VOTES. YOU KNOW WOULD YOU READ WHAT I'M DOING HERE ... (WALKS AWAY)."

SUPER: JOHN REIGER/MEMBER/SACRAMENTO COALITION TO END THE WAR

SOT: (:10)

SAYS: "THEY TALK ABOUT NOT HAVING THE VOTES TO OPPOSE THE PRESIDENT, BUT THEY DON'T NEED THE VOTES. ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS NOT BRING UP A FUNDING BILL. THEN THERE'S NO MONEY, THEY CAN BRING THE TROOPS HOME, IT'S RELATIVELY SIMPLE."
