While talking about his push towards affordable healthcare, Newsom said, "And in California, we will always protect a woman's right to choose".

Newsom's announcement on his first full day on the job continues a broader effort to hit the ground running to deal with problems facing the most populous US state of 40 million people.

Newsom will announce his actions Tuesday at a state emergency operations centre in a Sierra Nevada foothills community at high risk for fire.

Democrat Gavin Newsom picked up his son mid-speech, in which he spoke against President Donald Trump's anti-immigration policies and their affect on children. "We've lost 167 lives in fires and floods".

For the last two years, the state has allowed illegal immigrants under 19 to have access to Medi-Cal, the state version of Medicaid, but opening the door further would mean an additional 138,000 low-income illegals receiving benefits. The other set up a process to speed up the state's procurement ability.

"Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen", Trump said, misspelling the word "forest" twice.

Trump has blamed California for its wildfires, saying the state hadn't done enough to clean up its forests - ignoring the fact that about 60 percent of California's forests are on federal lands.

Newsom is expected to release his first state budget proposal on Thursday.

Newsom, a former mayor of San Francisco, has positioned himself as anti-Trump candidate and says he will use his governorship to "offer an alternative to the corruption and incompetence in the White House".

He declined to address question of whether the state should step in to help the investor-owned utility PG&E Corp avoid bankruptcy if it is determined that the company's equipment caused the Camp Fire last November, which destroyed Paradise.
