SACRAMENTO – (INT) – With the end of the 2020-21 legislative session, Governor Newsom took final action Saturday on the final bills to reach his desk.

• Homelessness & housing affordability crisis
• Public schools become gateways for opportunity
• Infrastructure for the next century
• Combat wildfires & tackling climate change
Lawmakers claim to have achieved the most robust small business relief package in the country, direct financial and rent relief for Californians, the largest increase in homeless housing in state history, universal Pre-K, and a $15 billion climate package to address wildfire and drought challenges while advancing California’s climate agenda.
“In a time when the state and country are more divided than ever, this legislative session reminds us what we can accomplish together,” Newsom said.
