REPORT: California Governor to buck Democrats on environmental bill

WASHINGTONTIMES.COM:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced he will buck Democratic legislative leaders by vetoing laws aimed at stopping the Trump administration from weakening oversight of longstanding federal environmental laws in California.

His announcement Saturday came less than a day after lawmakers approved the bill on the chaotic final day of the year’s legislative session.

The article goes on to state the following:

Newsom said in a statement he fully supports the aims of the bill but argued it wouldn’t give California new authority to push back on the Trump administration. He also said it would stop California from relying on the best available science. His office further said he’s concerned about a piece of the bill that could require the state to rely on Endangered Species Act opinions written roughly a decade ago.
