your taxes but the rollout was short on details including how to pay for it. "today in the bay's" tracie potts live on capitol hill this morning to explain more to us. good morning, tracie. >> reporter: good morning. now republicans have to fill in the blanks, house speaker paul ryan saying this morning he feels confident they can get it done. the president has called this the biggest tax cut in history but while individuals may keep more money in their pockets some lawmakers are already wondering without that money coming to washington how are they going to pay for things like the military and oeds and bridges and healthcare. >> taxes you can pay with a postcard, that's the promise from republicans. >> a middle class miracle. this is a revolutionary change and the bigge winners will be the every day american workers as jobs start pouring into our country. >> here is the plan, business taxes slashed to 20%, individual
taxes narrowed to three brackets. >> the top rate on the wealthiest comes down and the bottom rate on working class families goes up. what kind of plan is this? >> there will be fewer deductions but the big ones, charitable donations and home mortgage interest stay. the child tax credit expanded, the standard deductions doubled, the death tax mostly benefiting the wealthy gone, but easing your tax burden is expected to cost trillions of dollars. >> they have to find a way to pay for it if they want to make it work. >> this is a now or never moment. >> democrats urging the majority don't do it alone. >> let's have hearings, let's have people. >> republicans insist their plan will create jobs and growth. they want to get it done by the end of this year. and that's possible they could certainly do it but the way the rules are written here if republicans want to do it
without democratic support they will have to get the budget taken care of first. >> tracie potts, one we will certainly continue to follow. new details this morning on a major change at palo alto schools. we have confirmed reports that superintendent max mcgee has resigned. also this morning palo alto online reports the school board has agreed to give him six months severance pay and health benefits. mcgee has been at the center of multiple controversies including concerns over pay raises and the district's handling of sexual assault reports. >> good morning, it's 6:10 as you're getting ready before you head out on this thursday here is a look at what you can expect in terms of those temperatures. san jose will be climbing to 87 degrees, east san jose still hitting the 90 degree mark and for all of you who live in the east bay we are anticipating a cooling trend, for you it's going to come at a slower pace. today we will see a few degrees cooler than yesterday, danville 91, walnut creek 91, antioch 92, for those folks who live along
the peninsula we will see more cloud cover, low lying clouds and temperatures much more normal for this time of year for san francisco and the peninsula. in the 70s i will talk about what you can expect heading into friday in just a bit. we do have a new crash in hayward. i will show you south 880 somewhere between a street and the 92 interchange reports of a crash involving a big rig. there are a total of big rigs. one may be a big rig blocking your fast lane. the big rig would be in the fast lane on your left. that's why folks are slow in the middle. we're tracking that as you're getting over there a smooth drive coming out of the tri-valley so far but we will look at the san mateo bridge and the crowd heading across the westbound 92 direction, our live camera shows you the slow drive on the right side. i saw some flashing lights heading toward the end of the flat section, i will let you know if they have to block any lanes or other issues as well. up next, preparing for flu

degrees and san francisco at a nice 59 degrees. we've got one more warm day left before we can officially call it a bit of a cooling trend around here. san jose 87 degrees, east san jose 90 degrees, milpitas 88 and the inland spots won't see so much of a difference, but it will still be a flight one. danville 91 degrees, ccord 92, lnut creek 89, oakland 80 degrees. oakland can expect to see the return of some clouds, as you head into the midportion of the day because of that coastal fog it will start creeping in by the middle of the afternoon making a return through tomorrow with the possibility of seeing some drizzle along the coastline, the peninsula and san francisco as well. now, the north bay, santa rosa, 85 degrees, novato 87, point reyes 68. in the next seven days i bring each more good news. we've already seen the return of the fog along the coast and as you head into friday we will see the return of that morning drizzle. there will be a marine layer and on-shore flow. that's going to push away that
ridge leading into saturday and sunday, the clouds will linger around the start of next week. if you had nice plans to be outside, whether you are in san francisco or wine tasting in napa you will still be enjoying nice beautiful sunshine with a little more cloud cover. over here we're covering the roadways where we have a big jam. let's show you the overall view of the bay. we have that one spot in hayward that was a concern. we have only one lane southbound 880 out of the san leandro jams up through hayward through 92. somewhere between a street and 92, we have the crash involving a big rig and three or four other vehicles there and that's the reason for the big slow down. no sig alert has been issued, that means so far they think they can clear that relatively quickly or at least that's according to the specifications on what a sig alert would be and why they would call that. meanwhile the tri-valley moves well, 680 smoothly down towards
pleasanton. waze will show you that, if you are going from, for example, castro valley or san leandro through the peninsula you can take hess pairian and twill save you a lot of time if you're taking the dumbarton bridge over to the peninsula. make sure you take us with you that would be by joining our team called nbc bay area wazers. back to you. it is 6:21 coming up next google expansion, the reason the tech joint could derail plans to create thousands of units of much needed housing on the peninsula. coming up at 9:00 this morning, good morning, everyone. >> who loves dogs? they are man's best friend and best crime fighters. we meet the dogs that can sniff out predators. see you later this morning. and online right now our coverage of hugh hefner's passing continues. follow us @nbcbayarea for a link to a photo gallery, looking back at the life and legacy of the playboy founder.
welcome back, everyone. it is 6:24. in a matter of ways o.j. simpson could walk out of prison a free man. the former football star received parole a few months ago. he served nine years of a 33 year sentence for armed robbery and now the las vegas prison where he is being held is finalizing papers for his release.
simpson was acquitted of killing his ex-wife nicole and ron goldman but later went to jail after a confrontation over sports memorabilia in a las vegas hotel room. the prison says simpson could walk free as soon as monday. when he does leave he will be supervised by the nevada division of parole and probation. google looking to expand its headquarters in mountain view but they are changing plans and that seems to be causing friction with city leaders. in june google and the city agreed to build office space and nearly 1,000 units of housing. this would be in the north bay shore area of mountain view. google says in order to build all those homes the company needs to build more office space. google claims new homes would require the company to tear down existing office space. city officials are concerned about that. the plan is up for a vote in november. "will & grace" returns to nbc.

thanks for starting it with us as well. good morning to you, i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> and i'm marcus washington. >> right now we want to head over to mike inouye you are tracking a sig alert southbound 92 in hayward. >> exactly. that's the worst spot of the bay. the rest of the bay shows an easy drive, hayward that's very tough. a sig alert means a significant impact, the jam from san leandro down to 92 for more than a half an hour. you can of course take a street -- sorry, b street, highway 92, coming down out of san leandro take has pairian. the issue is a number of incidents that have to be cleared from the area, they are waiting for the right tow trucks and we have this big backup which complicates things. no inl maar injuries. that's the good news. as we move the map out we see that the approach may be ugly, you may want to head north over the bay bridge. an earlier crash did tie up
things in the maze, but we do see that things are moving smoothly. the east shore freeway is open unlike much of yesterday. there's some fog over at the golden gate bridge as well. what do you have for us today? >> there is some fog over at the golden gate bridge and don't be surprised when it sticks around for the next couple of hours. now, if you're getting the kids ready for san francisco it is cooler and will stay cooler, also in oakland we will see a slight drop in those temperatures, the temperatures are expected to climb into the 70s. for inland spots we will see another mid 80s, low 90s for areas like concord and antioch. around the lunch hour itill be nice, 72 degrees, i think it wille a great day for a picnic, maybe after school grab the kids and take them to the park. i will have a break down of the weekend in four minutes. so important to watch your
kids. >> happening now a warning to parents as they get ready to take their kids to school this morning. >> police in one peninsula city are asking people to be on the lookout after an attempted kidnapping reporting near twoe schools. "today in the bay" bob redell joins us live outside san mateo high school to explain what happened there and who police are looking for. >> reporter: good morning. this is involves a 14-year-old girl who is a student here at san mateo high school. fortunately she is physically safe, she was able to escape this abduction but she did have a fight. this happened yesterday morning as she was on the way here to class. you take a look at this map we put together for you on your tv jean, it happened about a mile -- about a half mile from our location. she was walking on peninsula avenue, police say as she passed the railroad tracks a man in a white utility van honked at her, the man she describes as middle eastern got out of his vehicle, grabbed her by the shoulder and started pulling her towards him,
she kicked, escaped, ran home and called police. officers searched the area but they were not able to foond him. a number people who live around here are rattled. >> i'm frightened right now. i never -- and sometimes i walk at night like here is the train. >> police are investigating a similar incident that happened in the area last week. now, officers are working with a girl to come up with a sketch of her attacker but they do have some tips for you parents at home to help your children be aware of stranger danger. tell them to look, listen, stay safe, be aware of their surroundings. don't have them looking at a book or iphone but keep their head on a swivel and eyes up. use the buddy system if possible. watch for cars that follow you. if somebody approaches you, somebody who is a stranger, yell and tell, say no, say, no, you are not my mother, no, you are not my father and if you can run
away and of course the most important piece of advice from police trust your instinct. reports live outside san mateo high school, bob redell, "today in the bay." this morning people have around the world are remembering playboy founder hugh hefner. he died from natural causes at his home in los angeles yesterday. he was 91 years old. we have a look back at his pretty iconic life. good morning. >> good morning, marcus and laura. yes, hefner -- boundaries when it came to sex and --. we are outside the named playboy mansion. a couple of people have left a tribute already in place. as you know over the course of his career hefner had his share of supporters and critics. one thing most people can agree
on is that he was a brilliant businessman. he grew his business into an empire that brings in more than $1 billion annually. he is being remembered as an icon of american culture and long before any of us talked about having a brand and developing an image hefner this perfected it. the parties will forever be remembered. playboy enterprises issued a statement last night calling hugh hefner a icon and saying he died of natural causes here at his home, the playboy mansion and he was surrounded by loved ones. as you mentioned 91 years old. hefner is survived by his wife crystal and four adult children. at this point funeral services are pending. back to you in the studio. >> we apologize for that breaking up a little bit. live report from los angeles. happening today, lawyers for sierra lamar's killer will go back to court. they will argue for a retrial.

santa clara's police chief stands by his officers though not everyone agrees. >> i firmly believe the judge would say that the officers acted in good faith and they are not in violation of law and that is the reason why i completely support their actions. >> santa clara police department trampled all over this mother's constitutional right and then they trampled all over her body. there was no need for them to make this type of entry. >> the $6.7 million settlement covers excessive force and long-term disability. it does not admit to criminal guilt. it is 6:37. developing this morning president trump is waiving the jones act to help get supplies to puerto rico quicker. they are tracking what is left now of the remnants of hurricane maria which slammed the u.s. her tore. the jones act requires ships going from american coast to american coast be american built, owned and operated, but that means goods going to puerto rico have to be on u.s. ships
which is actually stalling some of that aid and getting help to the island. president trump waived the act for florida and texas hurricanes after those hurricanes harvey and irma, but refused to do it for puerto rico until now. a bipartisan group of senators urged the president to act and he did. new this morning, fremont unified school district may build a new school. the school board heard from people in the community last night. the district says the new junior high school will go up on the horse property behind the mcdonald's on fremont boulevard. several schools will convert to middle schools meaning sixth, seventh and eighth grade students will attend. the district also has a timeline to make those changes through the 2022/23 school year. the population is booming across silicon valley and its straining some school districts, but maybe not for long. we looked into the projections overnight and the report from may 2015 says the number of school aged kids will actually go down in the coming years. the total number of kids and you
age 10 will decline by 5 to 8%, silicon valley's k through 12 enrollment rates will decline by about 3% between 2015 and 2023. now, here is why, researchers say the number of women who are childbearing age has not grown and will not keep pace with other population growth around the country. marcus, with the school year in full swing now you may have noticed your kids have a lot more homework that requires internet access, yet there are many families who don't have access at home. to close the homework gap a major u.s. carrier is giving students access for free.
