6:25 pm
growing more slowly than they would like. the latest jobs reports showing 160 jobs reported in april. economists predicted 200,000 jobs. one reason, perhaps, the president tried to turn the focus to big companies, paying their taxes over seas instead of here in america. tech companies are among america's biggest profit generators, but some have used financial loopholes to pay some of the taxes over seas at lower rates than what they would pay here. president obama addressed those loopholes directly. >> in america, no matter how wealthy or powerful, you should play by the same set of rules as everyone else. >> one law professor say companies using tax loopholes deprive america as much as $150 billion in revenue each decade. apple alone is said by some to have saved close to $30 billion

6:32 pm
that -- where that violation is and partly because we do a lot of education, too. >> it is unlikely you'll catch a bicyclist in the act. >> correct. >> the bike coalition wants access to a half mile stretch on the easy grade trail. the group says mountain bikers need a way to get to the popular mountain theater without having to compete with cars on narrow, windy roads. >> we're not asking, you know, for some grandiose access. we just want something to address safety and connectivity. his group petitioned the state parks for the use. >> i can you can provide the connectivity that bicyclists need and the safety that hikers enjoy. >> this is not a park that was set out to have anything like mountain biking. >> jordan is a hiking activist on an up hill climb to keep mountain bikers off of the trail. he worries about the environmental damage from bikes. >> when we cut down the tree that's have to be cut down for
