SACRAMENTO, CA (STL.News) Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order that supports ongoing recovery efforts in counties severely impacted by wildfires by extending various prohibitions on price gouging.

The order also allows state-level prohibitions in other counties, where recovery efforts are further along, to expire, allowing local officials to enact similar protections if deemed necessary.
