CALIFORNIA - Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order on Dec. 23, once again extending price-gouging protections in counties affected by devastating wildfires, including Butte County.
California's price gouging law prohibits raising prices by more than 10% on housing, gas, food and other essential supplies.
The Governor's newly signed order extends those protections through the entirety of 2020.
He specifically cites the fact the many homes are yet to be rebuilt and so protections are still needed.
