“I am thrilled to see Governor Newsom prioritize economic justice by investing in California communities most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Sen. Sydney Kamlager. (D-30) in a press statement. “It is particularly encouraging to hear the announcement of universal health care coverage, funding to address California’s drought, $2 billion for mental health housing and services, and additional child care slots – just to name a few.
