    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California is easing its coronavirus restrictions to allow up to three households to socialize outdoors, an expansion of rules aimed at people tempted to have even larger gatherings around Halloween, Thanksgiving and end-of-year holidays, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday. Three households can gather so long as they wear masks and follow other safety precautions designed to stem the spread of the virus, under the new guidelines from the California Department of Public Health. State health officials previously discouraged gatherings outside of a single household. The goal is not to encourage larger gatherings, Newsom said, but to...

    The California Department of Public Health on Friday released new guidelines for private gatherings amid the coronavirus pandemic. The guidelines are an update on household gatherings that takes precedence over prior guidance that was issued most recently last month. Anyone who plans to host or participate in a private gathering must comply with the following requirements: 1. Attendance Gatherings that include more than 3 households are prohibited. This includes everyone present, including hosts and guests. Remember, the smaller the number of people, the safer. Keep the households that you interact with stable over time.

    California is leading the nation once again. While other, backwards states are still clinging on to outdated notions like "liberty" and "freedom," Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered all citizens to wear new full-body masks. The progressive state is requiring all citizens to wear the newly designed full-body masks or risk death by stoning. "California is the most progressive state in the nation; therefore, we will be the first ones to force all our citizens to wear these attractive new full-body masks," said Governor Gavin Newsom. "Other states are still conservative and religious, but we are progressive and have dumped those...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill Wednesday that will establish a task force to study and develop proposals for paying reparations to the descendants of enslaved Black people. Assembly Bill 3121 calls for a nine-member body to make recommendations on what type of compensation, if any, should be awarded and who should be eligible. In addition, the group can recommend to the state Legislature how California can offer a formal apology "for the perpetration of gross human rights violations and crimes against humanity on African slaves and their descendants" and the elimination of state laws that disproportionately...

    The federal government is raising legal and practical questions about a recent California executive order attempting to end sales of gas-powered cars in the state by 2035. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler wrote to California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Monday, saying he believes California would need to request a waiver from his agency for the order to be implemented and implying that the state’s electricity infrastructure is insufficient for a shift toward electric vehicles. “While the [executive order] seems to be mostly aspirational and on its own would accomplish very little, any attempt by the California Air...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) signed a controversial bill into law Friday that will give judges greater discretion to decide whether adults who commit sodomy with minors should be placed on California’s sex offender registry. The bill, which passed the Democrat-led legislature last week, created a firestorm as proponents said its main purpose was to end discrimination against LGBT adults who have oral and anal sex with minors who claim to be consenting to the sexual activity. State Sen. Scott Wiener (D), who introduced the legislation, said in a statement on social media the new law would put an end to...

    The order directs the California Air Resources Board to develop a phase-out plan that would require 100 percent zero-emissions personal use and dryage vehicles by 2035 and as many medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicle applications deemed feasible by 2045. “Pull away from the gas pumps,” Newsom said. “Let us no longer be victims of geopolitical dictators that manipulate global supply chains and global markets.”

    A family in Fresno County, California, is upset that vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) trespassed on their property to use their burnt home as a photo op, according to a local news report. Harris visited California on Wednesday to survey damage from one of the fires that raged in California this month. Her trip came a day after President Donald Trump surveyed fire damage in the state.

    California Governor Gavin Newsom met with Donald Trump on Monday for a briefing on the wildfires that continue to ravage the state and much of the West Coast. Newsom asked Trump to "agree to disagree" on the politics of climate change, telling the president point-blank that "climate change is real" and is only exacerbating the deadly fires. "We can agree to disagree, and I appreciate your frame on the politics of this, but let me just acknowledge two things briefly," Newsom said in the meeting, which took place at the Sacramento McClellan Airport in McClellan Park, California. "There's no question...

    With vast swaths of his state on fire, thousands of homes burned, and millions suffering from chronic power outages one might think that Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) would be second guessing some of his Party's policies. That would be the sane and honest thing to do. Instead, Newsom insists that the fault lies elsewhere. In a crusade to end global climate change, California Democrats have enacted strict regulations on viable methods of generating electricity and mandated a massive dependence on unreliable wind and solar energy production. They have also restricted the traditional forest maintenance activities intended to clear out the...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom warned the country's leaders that the entire United States will soon mirror the raging wildfires that are working their way through thousands of acres of the state's land. “California, folks, is America fast-forward,” Newsom said. “What we are experiencing right here is coming to a community all across the United States of America unless we get our act together on climate change — unless we disabuse ourselves of all the BS that’s being spewed by a very small group of people that have an ideological reason to advance the cause of a 19th-century framework and solution....

    Politicians like Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom blame global warming and President Donald Trump for California’s woes. Yet Newsom has cautiously moved to mitigate some of his state’s past policy missteps by increasing efforts to clear forests of fuel and allowing some natural gas power plants to remain open for a few more years to reduce the threat of blackouts caused by an overreliance on unreliable wind and solar power. Giving policymakers the benefit of the doubt—that they didn’t intend to promote policies that resulted in burned towns, scores of deaths, and widespread power outages—how did they arrive at this point?...

    Contractors for the rail authority are filing massive change orders and delay claims... Additional land is also needed, adding to costs. At the same time, the bullet train’s funding has taken several big hits. California’s cap-and-trade greenhouse gas auction system has provided about $3 billion to the rail project since 2015 and is counted on to provide at least $500 million annually until 2030. But as a result of COVID-19’s economic impacts, the last two auctions shorted the project by $140 million... The Trump administration last year terminated a $929-million grant, which is in legal dispute. But the money is...
