Governor Newsom’s issues statement on Supreme Court ruling on West Virginia v. EPA

Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling on West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency: “The Supreme Court sided with the fossil fuel industry, kneecapping the federal government’s basic ability to tackle climate change. Today’s ruling makes it even more imperative that California and other states succeed in our efforts to combat the climate crisis. While the court has once again turned back the clock, California refuses to go backward – we’re just getting started. California will remain the tentpole for this movement with record investments and aggressive policies to reduce pollution, to protect people from extreme weather, and to leave our children and grandchildren a world that’s better off than we found it.”

  1. Gov. Newsom has damaged California in so many ways. Now he wants to do the same to the rest of the United States. But there are so many feeble Marxists in this state along with the Republican Establishment foisting Brian Dahle as the Republican nominee for governor …who knows what will happen in the November election.
