Newsom's plan would also involve efforts to speed up California's ability to buy firefighting equipment and other emergency response tools. He wants more helicopters, remote infrared cameras that can help detect fires, better alert systems and new technologies for tapping satellite images.

"Broad strokes, we are stepping up our game".

Newsom noted that he had joined Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee in writing a letter to the federal government earlier this week asking for an improved partnership in "taking on these unprecedented wildfires".

California Republican lawmakers are criticizing President Donald Trump for threatening to withhold federal money for wildfire relief.

Democratic U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, also of California, had challenged McCarthy to condemn Trump's comments. "I think what he was talking about was defensible spaces", Newsom said, referring to the practice of cleaning up brush around homes and other buildings.

California's wildfire season, always risky and frequently deadly, has extended almost year-round amid warming temperatures and extended dry spells. The president struck a more conciliatory tone while visiting Paradise, promising to work with Newsom.

"Undocumented young adults should not have to worry about losing their health coverage when they turn 19", the governor's office added, saying that the budget proposals, to be presented later this week, would defend Obamacare from "recent federal attacks" and "bring the state closer toward the goal of health care for all".

In his first executive order, Newsom directed the state to create a single government purchaser for prescription drugs to increase negotiating leverage with pharmaceutical companies.

"I'm very sensitive to things governors say, particularly as it relates to the markets", he said.

Newsom is expected to release additional details of his proposed budget for the state this week.
