Grove, Fong sharply critical of Newsom

Governor is ‘out of touch.’ Fong says

Both of Taft’s state representatives issued sharp reactions to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plan to ban the sales of gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035 and cooperate with Democrats in the legislature on banning fracking.
“Reality does not care about political theater,” said Assemblyman Vince Fong. “The reality is that there are real costs and job loss, particularly in the Central Valley, due to Gavin Newsom’s decisions today. The responsible thing to do right now is to ensure we have sound energy policy that will provide an affordable, reliable, and sustainable path forward for everyone. Newsom is increasing costs by pushing more burdensome regulations at a time of great difficulty for many Californians. This is out-of-touch behavior at its finest.”
