Former San Diego city council member Carl DeMaio slammed the state’s latest “draconian” workplace regulations on COVID-19 masks, warning that, if enforced, will deal a “crushing blow” to California businesses.
“I think a lot of people were stunned by that ultimate rule. I talked to various business groups who just felt it was arbitrary, capricious, (and) draconian,” said DeMaio, who chairs “Reform California” an advocacy group that opposes tax increases and promotes government accountability.
The revised rules come as Gov. Gavin Newsom faces a likely recall election this fall brought on by public discontent over his handling of the pandemic.
