Blue on Blue: Pelosi Battles Newsom Over CA Farmworkers

August 31, 2022

Breitbart News reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is butting heads with California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) over a farmworkers’ bill he recently vetoed, publicly calling on him to support a revised version of the bill.

At the center of the feud is Assembly Bill 2183, a similar version of a bill Newsom vetoed last year that would allow farmworkers to vote by mail in union elections. On Friday, Newsom told the California legislature he would not support Assembly Bill 2183, forcing the bill back to the California legislature for revisions.

Now, Speaker Pelosi is publicly urging the California Democrat governor to sign the bill. “CA farmworkers provide for our families — but far too many can’t provide for theirs because they are exploited and don’t have a voice on the job,” Pelosi tweeted Tuesday. “We can mend this injustice by expanding workers’ rights. I urge the governor to sign #AB2183 for the farmworkers and For The Children.”

It is unclear at this point whether the presidential-wannabe Newsom will support the revised version.
