California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday signed a law intended to counter Trump administration plans to increase oil and gas production on protected public land. The measure bars any California leasing authority from allowing pipelines or other oil and gas infrastructure to be built on state property. The law sends a 'clear message to (President Donald) Trump that we will fight to protect these beautiful lands for current and future generations,' said Democratic Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, who introduced it.
