Lawmakers Push Back as Gov. Newsom Expands Executive Orders

Since legislators agreed to give Gov. Gavin Newsom unrestricted access to $1.1 billion from the state’s budget back in mid-March in response to the coronavirus pandemic, some lawmakers have started to question the extent of Newsom’s authority. As the pandemic shows signs of slowing in California, the governor’s recent request for an additional $2.9 billion in emergency COVID-19 funds exempt from normal legislative oversight has led the nonpartisan Legislative Analyst’s Office to raise concerns about his use of power. Now, several GOP groups are suing Newsom’s executive order to mail every registered voter in the state a ballot ahead of the November election, claiming it to be an "illegal power grab". In this hour, we talk with experts about the constitutionality of Newsom’s authority during this crisis and how he’s using that authority.

How the Pandemic Could Reshape the Office Real Estate Market

Before the coronavirus pandemic, office rents in San Francisco and Oakland had reached all-time highs and developers couldn’t keep up with demand for space. Now, the trend toward working from home has forced many companies and workers to rethink where and how they work, which could have profound implications for the real estate market. A few businesses have already shelved expansion plans. Still, some experts argue that relying on Zoom meetings and remote work has its limitations and companies will again fill office towers and campuses once it’s deemed safe. In this hour of Forum, we dive into how the coronavirus pandemic could reshape the future of the office market and the future of work.
