Gov. Newsom packs emergency supplies for Ukraine relief efforts

SOLANO COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- Governor Gavin Newsom was in Solano County today to pack emergency relief supplies for Ukraine.

The Governor also signed an executive order directing state agencies and departments to ensure their contractors are complying with economic sanctions imposed in response to Russia's attacks on Ukraine, and sent a letter to the leaders of the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS), California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) and the University of California retirement system calling for the state to leverage its sizeable global investment portfolio to put pressure on the Russian government.
