The State of the Union was last week. But there’s one Californian who’s been waiting to give his rebuttal.
Gov. Gavin Newsom’s first State of the State is this morning. He’s set to double down on his inaugural promise to present an alternative to the rhetoric and policies coming out of the White House.
President Trump offered “a vision of an America fundamentally at odds with California values,” Mr. Newsom plans to say, according to excerpts from the address.
“He described a country where inequality didn’t seem to be a problem, where climate change doesn’t exist, and where the greatest threat we face comes from families at the border, seeking asylum from violence-stricken countries.”
Mr. Newsom will be speaking a day after he signed an order to withdraw almost 400 of California’s National Guard troops from the border and assign them to other duties, including working with Cal Fire on wildfire prevention and “intelligence operations,” aimed at international criminal drug gangs.
The move is also a departure from the approach of his predecessor, Jerry Brown, who agreed to add the troops at the Trump administration’s request.
“The border ‘emergency’ is a manufactured crisis,” Mr. Newsom says. “And California will not be part of this political theater.”
Here’s what else you need to know before the governor speaks:
When and how can I watch the speech?
The governor will speak to a joint session of the Legislature in the Assembly Chamber at 11 a.m. You can watch it here. (And a bunch of other places.)
If you really want to compare and contrast Mr. Newsom and Mr. Brown, you can listen to past State of the State speeches in this Capital Public Radio archive, which also includes some transcripts.
Beyond immigration, what can I expect him to talk about?
Mr. Newsom has talked about taking steps to narrow the economic chasm between, as he put it, “the rich and everyone else.”
He’s long said the state needs to build millions of homes, and he recently threatened to withhold transportation funding for local governments that fail to approve new housing.
We’ll most likely hear more about the initiatives Mr. Newsom laid out in his sweeping, ambitious budget proposal, which included proposals like boosting paid parental leave and early childhood education spending.
But is the governor dealing with any problems that he might discuss?
It’ll be worth keeping an ear out for how the governor addresses the bankruptcy of the state’s biggest utility, Pacific Gas and Electric (based in his hometown, San Francisco).
Observers have said that the way the governor handles the mess is his first — and potentially defining — big political test.
Earlier this month, he released a letter pushing for wildfire survivors, PG&E employees and customers to have “strong representation inside the bankruptcy courtroom.”
But so far, he hasn’t offered a concrete plan to reform the utility and reduce the risk of wildfires.

On Friday, I asked you to send your tiny California love stories — 100 words or fewer. Over the next couple of days, we’ll share some of them. Here’s a story from Kacey Pratt:
I was in San Diego for a conference. A friend and I went to a bar in North Park, and there he was — not my type. Later that night, back at my friend’s place, and he and I started talking. He told me about growing up in Idaho and joining the Marine Corps in 2002 at 17, deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. I was surprised by his opinions, they didn’t fit the military, red-state stereotype. I went home to NYC after the conference, but six months later, I moved to San Diego. We were married in May 2014.
