Governor Newsom Signs Executive Order to Support Communities Recovering from Wildfires 3.29.22

SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom today signed an executive order that supports communities recovering from recent wildfires, extending various prohibitions on price gouging in Butte, El Dorado, and Plumas counties through June 30, 2022.

The order also allows state-level prohibitions in other counties, where recovery efforts are further along, to expire, allowing local officials to enact similar protections if deemed necessary.
