Newsom’s Sham Reopening
Headlines say Gavin Newsom is “fully opening” California on June 15. What they should say is he’s continuing a catastrophic policy for at least another two months.
Newson’s bizarre announcement – the economy might open, schools won’t have to, and masks are here to stay – is as unlawful as it is incoherent. The Governor is legally required to end the State of Emergency “at the earliest possible date that conditions warrant.” There is no authority for a months-long political timetable.
Newsom recently said “we’re all geniuses in hindsight.” Yet the most ignorant errors continue at this very moment. He claims he “saved lives” with the nation’s worst lockdowns, yet our excess mortality rate is higher than 45 states. And we’re still last in the country at returning kids to school.
Unfortunately, California has a sham Legislature that still has not moved on my resolution to end all restrictions immediately or my amendment to open all schools five days per week. The good news is our Court of Appeals hearing in the lawsuit against Newsom is in less than two weeks.
I’m currently drafting another bill that should receive a hearing by the end of the month. As Vice Chair of the Assembly Privacy Committee, I’ll be introducing legislation to stop the madness of vaccine passports before it starts.
