SACRAMENTO – Today Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Rocklin) submitted the attached letter to Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon calling for an immediate joint oversight hearing and investigation of the recent COVID-19 “data glitch.”
The letter requests that a hearing include testimony from Governor Gavin Newsom himself, as well as former Public Health Director Sonia Angell, who resigned from her position Sunday evening.
“Oversight is a vital role of the Legislature, never more so than in the wake of a failure by the Executive branch that could impact the lives and livelihoods of 40 million Californians,” Kiley said. “To restore public confidence, it is critical that the Legislature determine the full extent of the state’s COVID-19 ‘data glitch’ and receive a full account of the steps taken to assure we now have accurate data to guide decision-making.”
Assemblyman Kevin Kiley represents the 6th Assembly District, which includes the Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County communities of Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Loomis, Orangevale, Penryn, Rocklin, Roseville, and Sheridan.
