On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom was in Solano County to sign more aggressive climate measures for the state.

VALLEJO, Calif. (KGO) -- California Governor Gavin Newsom traveled to Vallejo on Friday morning to sign six of some 40 bills recently passed by the legislature that he says will usher in a new era of world-leading climate action.

He says the bills will create four million new jobs, reduce oil use in the state by 91%, and accelerate the transition to clean energy.

According to Newsom, the package complements a $54 billion investment in climate-action already included in this year's budget.

California will spend the money on a variety of climate programs - from public transit to wildfire programs and more.

State regulators recently finalized the governor's plan to ban new gas car sales by 2035.
