Wilk: Newsom administration fails to ‘respond at time’ to state-funded COVID-19 test lab investigation in Valencia – Hometown station | KHTS FM 98.1 & AM 1220 – Radio Santa Clarita


Republican Senate Leader Scott Wilk R-Santa Clarita released a statement Monday, after the California Department of Public Health (COULDPH) released a much-anticipated report on a COVID-19 testing lab funded by the State of 1.7 billion dollars in Valencia.

The statement comes after Wilk sent two letters to Governor Gavin Newsom’s office to investigate the Valencia lab.

“It shouldn’t have taken Californians 287 days to receive responses on this taxpayer-funded COVID testing lab. Especially when our vulnerable students are the ones at risk, ”Wilk said. “Parents and families deserve the accountability and transparency of the Newsom administration. The allegations exposed in February were troubling to say the least – samples exchanged, inaccurate results, contamination and beyond. Not to mention that private laboratories produce the same results at a reduced cost. Looks like we can add this to the list of times Newsom failed to “respond at the moment”.

Last month, Wilk sent two letters to the CRPD asking for the report to be released and to stop the automatic renewal of the $ 1.7 billion contract for Perkin Elmer. Click on here and here read the letters.
