[WHITE TEXT AT TOP LEFT CORNER: Romduol]

DEAF INTERPRETER: Hello my name is Romduol and I will interpret for the governor’s press conference’s key points. Our Governor is in this photo.

[FULL SCREEN IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Governor Gavin Newsom is a white man with slicked back grey hair. He is wearing a black suit with a light blue shirt and a dark blue tie. He is speaking and gesturing with his hand. He is standing in front of three flags and from left to right, they are the American flag, California state flag and California Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) flag.]

[WHITE TEXT: Video made possible with support from:][IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The CAD logo is circular. The circle is outlined in dark blue and the words “CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF THE DEAF” and “1906” curves just inside the dark blue outline. The dark blue letters, “CAD”, are squeezed in a solid light blue circle inside the words and year.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: First today is California’s surplus budget and his plan for how to divide the funds. I will explain this with more details. California’s surplus budget money must be used until the funds run out.  I created a plan to provide support funds to people in need.  The plan is to provide financial support to those who are poor, essential workers, under-employed or unemployed.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A United States Treasury check. It is ombre colored that starts blue/green on the left and becomes yellow on the right. The Statue of Liberty is on the left and various numbers, bar codes, QR codes, mailing addresses, etc fill this check. In large red block letters is “$500-$600”]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Each individual will receive a $500 stimulus check and every family with children will receive an additional $600 stimulus check. The federal government aid programs are not available to immigrant workers. The state of California can and will support immigrant workers, because they are unable to receive financial support from the federal government.Immigrant workers must file and pay their taxes in order to receive California aid. If you do not have a Social Security Number, you can still file your taxes with help from 211.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The 211 logo is a dark blue speech bubble with the numbers 211 inside it with dots between each number. The speech bubble has yellow, red and light blue shadows. Below it, are the words “Get Connected. Get Help ™”]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Call, TTY, or Video Phone 2 1 1 for help with filing your taxes. 211 is a free support service that can help you figure out how to complete your taxes and file them. Taxes are due soon!  Go ahead and take this opportunity to file your taxes with free help.

[FULL SCREEN IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A line drawing of a hand giving a bag of money with a dollar sign on it to a house that also has a dollar sign symbol on it. An open hand emerges from the house to accept the bag of rent money.]

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A line drawing of a hand giving a bag of money with a dollar sign on it to a house with water, gas, light, and electricity symbols on it. An open hand emerges from the house to accept the bag of money.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: I plan  to use some of the remaining surplus funds to help support renters who have fallen behind on rent and utilities bills (gas, water, electricity, garbage). Many people are in need of help right now, I want to help prevent people from being evicted from their homes. The plan to help support renters is under review by the California Legislature. Once the plan is approved, then money can be given out to support people in need.  Without approval from the California Legislature, the plan cannot move forward— the money cannot be given out. We are hoping for approval.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Two young boys touch what appears to be their mother, who is sleeping on her side. She is holding a red plastic cup for monetary donations and has a cardboard sign that says “Homeless Please Help”. She is covered in an army camouflage blanket and is wearing gloves and a black hoodie. The boys are dirty and have jackets. Behind them is a cart and they are surrounded by concrete.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Now I will discuss the topic of homelessness. Many people are homeless in poor areas. I will discuss how we can support homeless people. Homelessness has been a persistent problem in poor areas of Oakland in Northern California. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the problem has gotten worse and even more people are homeless now. COVID-19 has spread through poor communities quickly. San Diego, in Southern California, has one of the biggest homeless populations in California. I

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Project Roomkey logo has a blue background with a white line drawing of a hand using a card to open a door. Next to that, also in white, it says, “Project Roomkey Hotel/Motel Crisis Housing”.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: I have a plan called “Project Roomkey” to support homeless people in California. Project Roomkey is a program that will last for 5 years. Rich people pay a higher tax to the government, so the government can use their money to support homeless people in poor areas. People in need are people who need a house, apartment, temporary housing, or a shelter to stay at.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A white man with a beard with a hat, hoodie and gloves is holding a paper bag with an alcoholic bottle peeking out the top of the bag. He does not appear to be happy. He is standing on the second floor looking over the railing of a place made up of metal and concrete.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: The plan will also provide medical support and mental health support services to homeless people. Therapy and counseling for mental health and addiction will also be provided. Over the next 5 years, this plan aims to end family homelessness through providing support with payments, medical care, and mental health/counseling.  That is our goal over the next 5 years.  Governor Newsom’s discussed topics related to water and the drought emergency across California. I will interpret what the plan that Governor Newsom presented.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: An image of a corn field that has dried up and died. The ground has cracked and is curling so it is clear that the area is going through a drought. A clipart of a cloud with rain with a circle and X is superimposed on top of the image.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: You may be wondering why there is a drought or why water has become scarce. Since 2020 there has been very little rainfall and very little snowfall.

Much of our water comes from the snowmelt from snowpacks on mountaintops.  As a result of the reduced snowfall, there has been less water available. The scarcity of water has had a huge impact on farmers, as well. Due to the drought, farmers have very little water to water their vegetable and fruit crops. In order to save water, farmers across California have had to reduce the amount of crops they plant by half. They cannot plant as many crops as they did before 2020. I would like to encourage you to think about how you can conserve water.

[WHITE TEXT AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN: SAVEOURWATER.COM]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Please visit the website linked below: saveourwater.com.

Using that link, you can learn more about how to help conserve our much needed water.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Save Our Water logo has the words “Save Our Water” in large black letters. There is an image of a brown hand turning off a yellow faucet with a single water drop coming out of it.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: California is also storing backup water in a watershed. The backup water can be rationed out to those in need across California, but please continue to conserve water if you can. The governor provided funds for poor people who need financial support to pay their water bill.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A clean white sink fills up with dirty water that runs from the faucet. It is very brown.  A red circle and X is superimposed onto the image.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: By providing funds to help poor people pay their water bill, everyone in California can have clean water and avoid becoming ill from dirty water. I would like to emphasize for the third time— please save water, because the backup water cannot continue to support California’s large population.  Go ahead, visit saveourwater.com and learn more about how you can conserve water.  The last topic I will discuss is COVID.I will explain what the current state of the pandemic is.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A black and white syringe that is halfway full is injected into the state of California, which is solid blue. To the right of that is a ribbon of large gold metal with the number “1 First” on it with brown stars around it. The ribbon is red and gold. California has one of the highest vaccination rates.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: I have great news! Many people in California have already been vaccinated. The number of people who are infected with COVID has decreased. Just a few people have COVID now.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The United States in varying shades of pale yellow, orange, dark orange and red. California is a pale yellow color. There are large COVID-19 cells dotted all over the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, but the COVID-19 cell on California is very small.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Across all of California, most counties are in the bottom two tiers, orange and yellow.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Two rows of color bars. The top row is orange with thumbs up signs exclamation points. The second row is yellow with happy faces and thumbs up signs.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: If cases continue to decrease, California will be able to re-open in June. I want all of you to continue to prevent the spread of COVID, wear a mask, and get vaccinated. It is important to continue following the guidelines that have been in place up until now: Wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart, wash your hands, and get vaccinated if you can.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION:  A group of people standing with arms around each other, all diverse skin colors, genders, and heights, all smiling and looking at the camera with a clip art of a gray syringe with blue liquid next to a gray vial with a blue label with a red cross in the middle]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Now all people 16 years old and older are allowed to get vaccinated. Thank you.

 5/10-5/11 Segunda transcripción – Gobernador Newsom – En tres ciudades diferentes: Oakland, Merced y San Diego

Tema: Presupuesto excedente (0:00-05:35)

Hola, mi nombre es Romduol. Interpretaré la conferencia de prensa del gobernador Newsom.

Habla el gobernador de California, Newsom.

El gobernador Newsom habló sobre el aumento del presupuesto de California y su plan sobre cómo dividir los fondos.

Explicare el plan que presentó el gobernador Newsom.

El dinero excedente del presupuesto de California debe usarse hasta que se agoten los fondos.

El gobernador Newsom creó un plan para proporcionar fondos de apoyo a las personas necesitadas.

El plan es proporcionar apoyo financiero a los pobres, trabajadores esenciales, subempleados o desempleados.

Cada individuo recibirá un cheque de estímulo de $500 y cada familia con niños recibirá un cheque de estímulo adicional de $600.

Los programas de ayuda del gobierno federal no están disponibles para trabajadores inmigrantes.

El estado de California puede y apoyará a los trabajadores inmigrantes, porque no recibirán apoyo financiero del gobierno federal.

Los trabajadores inmigrantes deben presentar y pagar sus impuestos para recibir la ayuda de California.

Si no tiene un número de seguro social, aún puede presentar sus impuestos con la ayuda del 211.

Llame, TTY o teléfono de video 2 1 1 para obtener ayuda con la declaración de impuestos.

211 es un servicio de asistencia gratuito que puede ayudarlo a descubrir cómo completar sus impuestos y presentarlos.

El último día para hacer sus impuestos llegará pronto.

Aproveche esta oportunidad para presentar sus impuestos con ayuda gratuita.

El gobernador Newsom planea usar algunos de los fondos excedentes restantes para ayudar a apoyar a los inquilinos que se han atrasado en el alquiler y las facturas de servicios públicos (gas, agua, electricidad, basura).

Muchas personas necesitan ayuda en este momento, el gobernador Newsom quiere ayudar a evitar que las personas sean desalojadas de sus hogares.

La Legislatura de California está revisando el plan para ayudar a los inquilinos.

Una vez que se aprueba el plan, se puede entregar dinero para ayudar a las personas necesitadas.

Sin la aprobación de la Legislatura de California, el plan no puede avanzar; no se puede entregar el dinero.

Esperamos su aprobación.

Tema: Personas sin hogar (05: 35-9: 20)

Ahora discutiré el tema de las personas sin hogar.

Muchas personas carecen de hogar en zonas pobres.

Hablaré de cómo podemos ayudar a las personas sin hogar.

La falta de vivienda ha sido un problema persistente en las áreas pobres de Oakland en el norte de California.

Desde el inicio de COVID-19, el problema ha empeorado y ahora hay más personas sin hogar.

COVID-19 se ha extendido rápidamente a las comunidades pobres.

San Diego, en el sur de California, tiene una de las poblaciones de personas sin hogar más grandes de California.

El gobernador Newsome ideó un plan llamado “Proyecto Roomkey” para apoyar a las personas sin hogar en California.

Proyecto Roomkey es un programa que tendrá una duración de 5 años.

Los ricos pagan un impuesto más alto al gobierno, por lo que el gobierno puede usar su dinero para apoyar a las personas sin hogar en las áreas pobres.

Las personas necesitadas son aquellas que necesitan una casa, un apartamento, una vivienda temporal o un refugio para quedarse.

El plan también proporcionará apoyo médico y servicios de apoyo de salud mental a personas sin hogar.

También se proporcionará terapia y asesoramiento para la salud mental y la adicción.

Durante los próximos 5 años, este plan tiene como objetivo acabar con la falta de vivienda de la familia mediante la prestación de apoyo con pagos, atención médica y salud mental / asesoramiento.

Ese es nuestro objetivo durante los próximos 5 años.

Tema: Agua (9:20-13:38)

El gobernador Newsom discutió temas relacionados con el agua y la emergencia por sequía en California.

Interpretaré cuál es el plan que presentó el gobernador Newsom.

Quizás se pregunte por qué hay una sequía o por qué el agua se ha vuelto escasa.

Desde 2020 ha habido muy pocas lluvias y muy pocas nevadas.

Gran parte de nuestra agua proviene del deshielo de las capas de nieve en las cimas de las montañas.

Como resultado de la reducción de las nevadas, ha habido menos agua disponible.

La escasez de agua también ha tenido un gran impacto en los agricultores.

Debido a la sequía, los agricultores tienen muy poca agua para regar sus cultivos de vegetales y frutas.

Para ahorrar agua, los agricultores de California han tenido que reducir a la mitad la cantidad de cultivos que siembran.

No pueden plantar tantos cultivos como lo hacían antes del 2020.

Me gustaría animarte a pensar en cómo puedes conservar el agua.

Visite el sitio web vinculado a continuación: saveourwater.com.

Al usar ese enlace, puede obtener más información sobre cómo ayudar a conservar agua. California también está almacenando agua de reserva en una cuenca.

El agua de reserva se puede racionar para los necesitados en todo California, pero continúe conservando agua si puede.

El gobernador proporcionó fondos para las personas pobres que necesitan apoyo financiero para pagar la factura del agua.

Al proporcionar fondos para ayudar a las personas pobres a pagar su factura de agua, todos en California pueden tener agua limpia y evitar enfermarse por el agua sucia.

Me gustaría recordarles por tercera vez: por favor ahorre agua, porque el agua de reserva no puede continuar apoyando a la gran población de California.

Continúe, visite saveourwater.com y obtenga más información sobre cómo puede conservar el agua.

Tema: COVID (13:38-16:31)

El último tema que discutiré es COVID.

Explicaré cuál es el estado actual de la pandemia.

¡Tengo buenas noticias!

Muchas personas en California ya se han vacunado.

Ha disminuido la cantidad de personas infectadas con COVID.

Solo algunas personas tienen COVID ahora.

En todo California, la mayoría de los condados se encuentran en los dos niveles inferiores, naranja y amarillo.

Si los casos continúan disminuyendo, California podría reabrirse en junio.

El gobernador Newsome lo alienta a continuar previniendo la propagación del COVID, usar una máscara y vacunarse.

Es importante continuar siguiendo las recomendaciones que se han establecido hasta ahora:

Use una máscara, manténgase a 6 pies de distancia, lávese las manos y vacúnese si puede.

Ahora todas las personas mayores de 16 años pueden vacunarse.

Gracias.
