California’s Tulare County is Facing Pushback from the State as It Pushes for Reopening

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California's Tulare County is facing pushback from the state as it pushes the boundaries on reopening beyond what state officials allow.

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration told Tulare County officials they could lose out on state and federal disaster funding if they don’t follow the state’s rules. The Central Valley county’s board of supervisors voted Tuesday to allow most businesses and churches to reopen.

More than half the state’s counties have won state approval to reopen things like restaurants for diners and other businesses. Newsom has outlined a four-stage process to ease restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
