California Gov Newsom Will Not Lift State of Emergency on June 15

Gov. Gavin Newsom will not lift the state of emergency in California on June 15 as promised, he said Friday.

Asked if he would lift the order that gives him broad emergency powers on June 15, the day he said he would lift most COVID restrictions, Newsom said: “The emergency remains in effect after June 15.”

“The one thing I am certain of is: There’s uncertainty in the future,” Newsom added at an event to pick winners in the state’s lottery-style vaccination incentive program.

California has been under a state of emergency since March 2020. Since then, Newsom has issued some 47 executive orders to alter or suspend 200 state laws and regulations because of the virus, according to a resolution from state Republicans.

“Gavin Newsom admitted what we knew all along—he has no intention of getting California back to normal and everything out of his mouth is a lie. In Gavin’s California, he acts like a dictator and continues to keep Californians under his rule with his draconian lockdown,” Caitlyn Jenner, who is running against Newsom in a recall special election over his handling of coronavirus, said in a statement.
