with debunkers from fact check organizations like snope s&p olitifact. meanwhile gop lawmakers roll out there long awaited plan to replace the affordable care act, but veronica de la cruz tells us that some key details are still being worked out. >> that's right, ken. house republicans released the 66 page american healthcare act late today. it would provide tax credits to help people buy insurance, but it would no longer require them to. full credits would go to individuals making less than $75,000 a year and families making less than $150,000 a year. they would taper off for higher earners. the bill would also freeze enrollment in medicaid and cap medicaid grants to states and no taxpayer funds would go to plans that cover abortion. the bill would keep some popular obamacare provisions like protecting people with preexisting conditions and allowing kids to stay on their
parents' plans until they're 26. as for how generous those tax credits are and how expensive this bill would be, lawmakers are still crunching those numbers. veronica de la cruz, kpix5. big victory for environmentalists in vallejo tonight, christin ayers tells us the fate of a controversial new cement plant was decided just moments ago. >> reporter: people are still trickling out of the meeting here. the planning commission here just voting 6-1 against that proposed cement factory. this is a controversial issue that had pitted environmentalists against developers and neighbor against neighbor. the old general mills flour mill on the south side of vallejo has been shut down for years, but now developers from a company called orsim are fighting to resurrect it as a cement factory. >> some people's homes are only a few hundred feet away. >> reporter: that fight faced fierce opposition tonight at vallejo city hall. people packed a planning commission meeting holding

cover their las vegas stadium bet, but joe vazquez tells us that oakland isn't giving up the fight just yet. keep that team in town. >> what happened in vegas appears to be happening again in vegas, but we still don't know where the raiders will end up. after already throwing one incomplete pass in vegas the oakland raiders owner is taking another shot at moving the team out of oakland. mark davis told the finance committee at the nfl owners meeting in florida today he has lined up $1.9 billion from bank of america. it's a huge loan that would finance a 65,000 seat stadium in las vegas. he may remember davis had already announce -- you may remember davis had already announced financing from goldman sachs, but that fell through, but wait, the new deal is not a done deal yet. oakland mayor libby schaaf put out a statement declaring she also made a presentation to the finance committee in florida today.

county of nearly 2 million have signed up for voluntary alerts, less than 3%. the city could have sent a warning using the federal government system, the same one used for amber alerts and national weather service advisories. it would have reached people's cell phones whether or not they signed up, but the city never asked and the message was never sent. >> thousands of our residents are more than frustrated, they're angry and have every right to be angry. the warning system that was in place was not adequate. >> reporter: in san jose devin fehely, kpix5. dangerous e-coli it was like the worst thing in my life. >> i don't feel like i can trust food. >> tonight this bay area family is filing the first lawsuit over a dangerous e. coli outbreak, the food they say made their son seriously sick. >> plus a bay area city cracking down tonight on drivers taking side streets through neighborhoods, the shortcut that could cost you. >> and she was lost in the woods for more than a week. tonight how a firefighter was in the right place at the right
