KERN COUNTY, Calif. — Assemblyman Vince Fong, R-Kern County, issued the following statement regarding Governor Newsom's Executive Order, which bans fracking and gas-powered vehicles:

“Reality does not care about political theater. The reality is that there are real costs and job loss, particularly in the Central Valley, due to Gavin Newsom’s decisions today. The responsible thing to do right now is to ensure we have sound energy policy that will provide an affordable, reliable, and sustainable path forward for everyone. Newsom is increasing costs by pushing more burdensome regulations at a time of great difficulty for many Californians. This is out-of-touch behavior at its finest.”
