SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California Gov. Gavin Newsom's budget plan calls for turning a $15 billion windfall into economic relief as the state faces a rapid surge in coronavirus cases and deaths.

His $227 billion plan, released Friday, comes as he notes the state is facing "a challenge the likes of which we never expected."

Newsom says the budget addresses five urgent needs: Vaccinating people against coronavirus, reopening schools, supporting small businesses, getting money into people's pockets and preparing for wildfires, for which he includes $1 billion.

It marks a sharp turn as lawmakers were forced to make cuts in the summer to make up a shortfall in the midst of the pandemic.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
