It’s wildfire season in California again, and Gov. Gavin Newsom has proposed a record $ 1.2 billion fund for “wildfire resilience.” But how effective was forest fire prevention under his tenure? Guest co-host Scott Rodd shares his report on how Newsom misled the audience about the area of land that was actually the subject of fire prevention work. Of the 90,000 acres Newsom said have been treated, CapRadio and NPR California Newsroom’s investigation found that the state’s own data shows the actual number to be 11,399.
It has been almost a year and a half since California’s new law regarding the murderous use of force by police came into force. CalMatters reporters Byrhonda Lyons and Laurel Rosenhall discuss with Nigel the effectiveness of the law in reducing police shootings and holding police officers accountable.
