Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday was in Santa Clara County, joined by other state leaders, to sign a bill that paves the way for more affordable housing and creates more jobs, boosting the state’s economic recovery.
The bill signing was set to take place at 10:30 a.m.
Newsom was in the Bay Area last week to unveil a $100 billion comprehensive economic recovery plan, dubbed the California Comeback Plan. He said then the state was operating with a $75.7 billion budget surplus.
