Newsom wants tax rebate, touts ‘California Way’ of governing

"Gas prices are out of control. Let's suspend the gas tax, stop using foreign oil and focus on energy independence policies that don't place new burdens on working families," said Republican Assemblymember Suzette Martinez Valladares, who issued the Republican "prebuttal" to Newsom's speech. "We must end the energy policies that punish Californians while rewarding countries like Russia and China for their bad behavior."
