"Senior members of a California medical trade group that has lobbied the state on COVID testing guidelines joined Governor Gavin Newsom for a dinner at an upscale Napa Valley restaurant earlier this month, Politico reported on Wednesday.
Newsom was photographed on November 6 at the French Laundry restaurant in Yountville, Calif., in a party that did not observe the state’s coronavirus mitigation guidelines. The party was a birthday celebration for Jason Kinney, a lobbyist and longtime adviser to Newsom.
Also present at the dinner were California Medical Association CEO Dustin Corcoran and CMA lobbyist Janus Norman. CMA has lobbied for coronavirus testing protocols outlined by the California Department of Insurance, a state agency that oversees health insurance industry regulations, and against testing protocols from a different state insurance regulator, the California Department of Managed Health Care."
"CMA spent $2.1 million lobbying state lawmakers last year and their lobbying work extends to COVID testing guidelines."
