L.A. Mayor: Congress Can't 'Dillydally' With Stimulus

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa met with members of the Obama administration in Washington earlier this week. He's just one of many mayors and governors trying to secure federal funds from economic stimulus legislation. Villaraigosa says his city can't afford to have Congress "dillydally" and "bicker" over the stimulus. He tells Renee Montagne that he's emphasizing Los Angeles as the ideal place to nurture a green economy and clean technology.
