California Gov. Gavin Newsom outlines plan to reopen in conjunction with West Coast states - CNNPolitics
California Gov. Gavin Newsom outlined a framework for reopening the economy in the Golden State Tuesday, warning in a gentle rebuke to President Donald Trump that the state's coronavirus protocols would be guided by 'science and public health, not politics' and telling residents that they will enter a radically different environment in their daily interactions.
The Democrat did not give a date that the current state-at-home order would end. It currently extends through May 3 statewide, and longer in places like Los Angeles, which has a stay-at-home in effect until May 15. Instead local governments, he said, would be determinative, but he declined to respond to Trump's assertion that the President alone has total authority to decide when the country will reopen.
