Ballots Mailed, Democrats Cancel Only Wildfire Oversight Hearing

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.”

Last month, the Supermajority in the California State Assembly voted down a proposal by Gallagher that would have funded critical wildfire prevention (video).

Just awful that anything has to think twice about recalling Gabby Nuisance who doesn’t even possess the moral compass required to run in the first place.

Mask up our children, breath foul smoke from our burning forests, pay higher taxes, pay illegals to come to Cal, cut police and fire, tell us what to do with our personal lives, and behold to special interest. That’s Newsom. It only gets worse if he stays.

I’m no Newsom fan, but the Republicans’ claims that he is somehow responsible for drought conditions, global warning and Covid-19 along with their implication that THEY could do better is just plain B.S. Mere political opportunism with no truth.
