A big part of the pandemic recovery process for California will be getting people back out and about. The state is one of the biggest tourism destinations in the world, but the world isn’t totally back to normal yet. To meet that need, the state kicked off a campaign this week to encourage Californians to stay and play in the Golden State. Scott Rodd talks with CapRadio’s Mike Hagerty, who recently spoke with Visit California President & CEO Caroline Beteta about it. We’ll also hear from the driver of a Sacramento Brew Bike, which relies on tourism to survive.
Plus, California’s budget surplus should be good news for all. But some county health departments are concerned they’ll be left behind. Nigel Duara talks with CalMatters’ Barbara Feder Ostrov about why county health departments are fighting for more money.
