BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - California's new state budget plan is expected to bring some relief for North State fire survivors.

Governor Gavin Newsom unveiled a $13 billion spending plan, which includes three years worth of property taxes lost to Butte and Lake counties.

Action News Now spoke with State Assemblyman James Gallagher for his reaction to the proposal.

"That was a really welcome development," he said. "Usually they only do one year's worth. We told them we need more long term certainty." 

Governor Newsom is pledging $100 million for wildfire spending. That is in addition to the $200 million already approved by lawmakers last year.
