    “Why California is suing its own cities (Governing)”

    Because Newsom is a hypocritical politician who is far more like Trump than he will admit. Newsom is selective in ignoring federal laws he disagrees with, but chooses to sue cities who do the same thing. The housing nonsense percolating out of Sacramento this year is astounding. How about letting past legislation have time to take effect? Oh, but Newsom is grandstanding & needs attention now, for his brand… When you vote for a guys haircut, perhaps you’re to blame?
