SACRAMENTO – Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher (Yuba City) issued the following statement ahead of President Biden’s visit to California, calling on the President and Governor Newsom to prioritize infrastructure to protect and improve the lives of Californians:

“Newsom & Biden’s allies on the far left continue to throw up roadblocks to improving critical infrastructure. Everything from fuels reduction projects that protect communities from wildfire to water storage get bogged down in red tape.

“This is a matter of safety. The President and the Governor need to reject the extremists that stop us from delivering for Californians.”

And if anyone is wondering where we can get the money for these infrastructure projects, there’s a $100 billion train to nowhere and 87,000 new IRS agents we could pull money from.”
