California Governor Gavin Newsom is accusing oil companies of price gouging. Politico reports:  

Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday he would call a special session of the Legislature to consider a windfall profit tax on oil companies in response to the “outrageous and unconscionable” price of gas in California. 

The governor told reporters the session would start Dec. 5, far enough away for his administration and lawmakers to prepare for what would likely be a tough fight to impose a new tax even with a Democratic super-majority in the Legislature. It would also take place after the November election, sparing candidates from having to take a difficult vote in the heat of campaign season. 

The Carolina Panthers have parted ways with head coach Matt Rhule, Steve Wilks will step in as the interim head coach.
