Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

On building more public transportation in L.A., Villaraigosa says: "It will be unique to Los Angeles. It won't be unique to New York, Chicago, San Francisco. But yes, doubling the size of the rail system will get you all over this county. And that's what we're trying to do here."
