SACRAMENTO – Today, Democrats in Sacramento indefinitely postponed the only scheduled legislative hearing designed to provide oversight over the state’s mismanagement of wildfire prevention.
The hearing had been called following the release of a bombshell report exposing how Gavin Newsom’s misled the public about his wildfire prevention efforts and cut $150 million from CAL FIRE’s wildfire prevention budget.
“I’m once again in complete disgust with our corrupt state government,” said Assemblyman James Gallagher (R-Yuba City). “The Democrat Supermajority is more interested in politics and protecting their Governor than getting to the bottom of why our state is burning.”
“I can understand why the Governor and his allies in the Legislature want to avoid any oversight of this issue, especially less than 30 days before a recall election. Californians are literally running for their lives as a result of their deceptive politics and failure to act.”
