The Congress takes place in Detroit's Cobo Center from April 20-24.
Schutt told the media in attendance at a preview earlier this month that SAE invited the governor to address the conference, but was not scripting his speech.
SAE does not know what Schwarzenegger will say. The society has long been involved in setting industry standards.
However, according to Schutt, SAE does not have a formal position one way or the other on the California waiver request.
