Kevin de León, Nancy Pelosi strategize 'to protect California's progressive policies and values'

California Senate leader Kevin de León met with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday to discuss how they will "protect California's progressive policies and values," De León said in a tweet.

The two Democratic leaders have said they are willing to engage the White House on common objectives. But they also have vowed to wage fierce opposition against the Donald Trump administration and a GOP-controlled Congress, which California lawmakers have said could threaten the state's work on issues such as healthcare, immigration and climate change.

The state Senate has said it plans to hire its own outside counsel for guidance on how to fend off unfriendly directives from Trump.
