heading through the altamont pass towards 680. past that things pick up. here's a look at your ride 680 heading to walnut creek right near north main street traffic flowing freely in both directions. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. the san jose police department's independent auditor is calling for greater transparency when it comes to officer use of force. kpix 5's sandra osborne is live outside the police station with a look at a new report reporter: the big problem here is that in the review it talks about the lack of information for auditors to actually comb through to get the details they need and according to these auditors they say they have no authority to review some of the use of force cases if a complaint hasn't been filed by somebody in the public. so literally somebody has to go file a formal complaint for these auditors to be able to go through the details of that case. now, this is just one of the big topics in the annual review up for discussion at today's city council meeting. the independent auditor also raised concerns for the
5:03 am
department's tendency to give officers the benefit of the doubt in use of force cases. overall though the number of complaints has fallen. they went from 303 in 2015 to 292 in 2016. according to san those complaints and allegations are not only use of force but also encompass conduct unbe cooking of an officer and procedure violations. one that was different for this review for the year of 2016, in july of last year that's when san jose police officers started using body cameras so for some of these complaints, the auditors were actually able to pull the video to review some of these cases. that way the outcome on whether or not they believe these were sustained and justified and this is ing to change audits in the future. so only for half of last year were they able to pull those videos but we're going to see video influencing future audits. sandra osborne, kpix 5. republican leaders are facing an uphill battle to get
5:04 am
the new gop healthcare bill through the senate. the nonpartisan congressional budget office released its report on the impact of the bill yesterday. and the cbo says that the new legislation will cause 280 million more americans to lose coverage by 2026 and reduce the budget deficit by $321 billion. the biggest drop is next year when the penalty for not having insurance would be eliminated. some senators are demanding changes before they vote yes while others are concerned what gop leadership will do to get the final votes that they need. >> unless the bill changes. >> the best way to lose me on this bill is to start buying people off. so that's what i'm really suspicious of. >> the bill would radically cut federal funding for medicaid, 13.5 million californians get their insurance through that program. gop leaders have been pushing for a vote this week. republicans can only lose 2 votes to pass it. the alameda county sheriff
5:05 am
is getting money from the fed to help stop extremist groups like the ones behind scenes like this in berkeley last february. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in san leandro to explain reporter: good morning. yeah, that's right. the department of homeland security has awarded a grant of nearly half a million dollars to the alameda county sheriff's office to fight violent extremists. now, critics of this federal program say it targets muslim communities and islamists and targets islamic extremists but the alameda county sheriff's office want to use the money to target white supremists and radical anarchists five months after antifascist protestors stormed uc-berkeley campus to shut down a speak by conservative speaker milo yiannopoulos. kpix 5 security analyst jeff harp says the fbi is already
5:06 am
busy investigating domestic terror cases. this grant can supplement those efforts. >> terrorism comes in a lot of different flavors. and so that could be used to combat terrorism to pay officer overtime to conduct investigations, to participate in other agency investigations. >> reporter: the sheriff's department says the money will be used to reach out to alienated young people and to disrupt radicalization of prisoners at santa rita jail. the sheriff's department says there will be no focus on islam. alameda county is one of 26 different law enforcement agencies and community groups that were awarded this money totaling $10 million. reporting live in san leandro, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. new details this morning on a san francisco teenager who fell to her death at lands end in san francisco last week. according to police, the 17- year-old girl and her two friends ignored a danger area closed sign there and walked to the end of a painted rock cliff when she fell 200 feet landing

5:30 am
>> i'm kenny choi. a new report is shedding light on misconduct complaints within the san jose police department. kpix 5's sandra osborne has more from san jose. reporter: good morning to you. yeah. this review is something that's done every year by an independent auditor. and this year, that review is out for 2016 now. it's just finished up. it's something that city council members will be hearing later today. in this review it says that one of the big problems is a lack of information for auditors to actually review and that's for a couple of reasons. first, according to san, auditors have no authority to review use of force cases if no formal complaint has been filed. they also say that sjpd files all force incidents the same way regardless of severity with the exception of someone dying in custody or tv an officer discharges a weapon. auditors say that leaves little data to analyze to see any use of force trends. san jose also says no complaints about use of force came from within the
5:31 am
department and they point out auditors say more data would help to see if certain demographics are being disproportionately affected. now, this report is more than 100 pages so we're still combing through that. again, city council members will be hearing the report on that later today. but one thing i did notice, if you will remember, san jose police started using body cameras last summer. that video has been used by auditors on a couple of instances and we'll probably see that influencing future audits. sandra osborne, kpix 5. a bay area father is being remembered as a hero after he sacrificed his life to save his 5-year-old daughter from drowning. the fair were kayaking near brannan island in sacramento county when their kayak capsized. at first they both went under but 40-year-old ronnie avila hoisted his daughter monique on his shoulders above water. a good samaritan rescued her.
5:32 am
he died. his older daughter witnessed it. >> she saw when he was waving and holding the sister with the other hand. she started yelling at them, like, to save her dad but it was too late. >> officials say the family had not been wearing life vests. people living along the kings river in fresno county may soon be allowed back home after levees breached on friday night. it happened after the huge summer snowpack began to melt in extreme temperatures. the breaches flooded the golf course as well as about 90 homes. about 300 people had to evacuate over the weekend. and officials say that the water level on the kings river is dropping a foot a day. it could happen at levees across the day in coming weeks with the snow melt stressing them as they get soaked, dry out and soaked again.
5:33 am
>> hm. >> interesting. >> makes you go hm. >> i was so disappointed last summer because we were in the drought and we had a lot of stagnant water in reservoirs and lakes and blue algae bloom and we couldn't swim anywhere, right? yesterday, i was taking ai look at lake del valle thinking about swimming there today and they are starting to see the blue-green algae. it's safe to swim but don't drink the water as far as the dogs. don't let your dogs -- how do you do that? we'll keep an eye on that towards the it's "june gloom." we have overcast conditions going inland 45 miles. official sunrise at 5:49. clear skies. did you notice yesterday how blue the sky was? that's because of those winds that were whipping onshore out of the west at 20. it will be the same again today. right now we are in the 50s and
5:34 am
60s. the winds have been picking up in oakland at 18 back through the estuary of oakland. sfo 17-mile-per-hour winds. it's a slight breeze in mountain view otherwise 9-mile- per-hour winds in the pleasanton area. 22 in fairfield. 14 in antioch. again these winds more consistent 10 to 20 today. 70s common today across the peninsula. 76 in san jose. the average high 78. low 70s in fremont but mid- to high 70s in throughout the tri- valley. average high 85. so slightly below average. 84 for brentwood. discovery bay 85. 74 benicia. 60s blustery due to the winds at the north bay seashore at stinson beach to the mid-70s in novato, sonoma and napa, glen ellen, as well. then we get toastier upstream towards lake county into the mid- to high 80s. we'll talk about the 90s and
5:35 am
when you can expect it. that's coming up. but right now let's send it over to jaclyn. good morning. delays at the bay bridge toll plaza. i know, very shocking. but we have the metering lights on. plus an accident now and that's just been cleared out of lanes but a couple of cars involved with lanes blocked westbound 80 just as you approach those metering lights. so speeds are down to 30 miles per hour. "slow, stop, go" until you get -- you're looking at 12 minutes from the maze into san francisco. residual slowdowns on 880 through oakland after a lane was blocked and is cleared. and we continue to track these slowdowns through the altamont pass. about 35 minutes from 205 towards 680. that earlier crash near el charro is cleared. chp running traffic breaks. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. thank you. today we could find out whether the cost of parking will go up in two of palo alto's busiest areas. the city council is set to okay
5:36 am
a plan that would raise the annual parking permit fees for california avenue lots from 149 to $365. daily parking fees would go up from $8 to $25. in downtown the current garage parking permit rate is $466 a year. but it could rise to $730. if approved the changes would start next month. the alameda county sheriff is getting money from the feds to help stop extremists like the ones behind scenes like this one in berkeley last february. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in san leandro to explain reporter: >> reporter: the alameda county sheriff's office is awarded about half a million dollars coming from the department of homeland security part of a federal program to fight violent extremists. the sheriff's department tells us it wants to target white supremacists and anarchists
5:37 am
five months after the anti- fascist protestors stormed uc- berkeley campus to shut down a speech by conservative speaker milo yiannopoulos. the aclu has criticized the federal program saying it focuses on islam, stigmatizes muslims. ray kelly says they have broader plans saying the grant is to combat violent extremists. we're going to train officers on our staff in records to extremism on all fronts. the sheriff's department says the money will be used to reach out to alienated young people and to disrupt radicalization of prisoners at santa rita jail. alameda county is one of 26 community groups and law enforcement agencies to receive this federal funding totaling $10 million. reporting live in san leandro, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. the u.s. is issuing a direct warning to the syrian government. it comes as the white house
5:38 am
says it has potential evidence that the regime of bashar al- assad is preparing to launch a chemical attack. the white house did not provide evidence of this but says the preparations were similar to those before an april attack. days later president trump ordered a cruise missile strike on the air base where u.s. officials say the attack was launched from. assad has denied responsibility. russia claims the chemical weapons were released when a syrian air strike hit a rebel stockpile of nerve gas. republicans are pushing forward with the senate healthcare proposal facing criticism from democrats and some gop lawmakers. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger joins us now to break down the numbers. so jill, who is covered under medicaid and how would the senate plan change this program? >> reporter: medicaid turns 51 years old next month and currently covers about 74 million americans including low- income families, pregnant
5:39 am
women, people with disabilities and those who need long-term care. it is funded as a partnership between the federal government and the states. each side pays a portion of a patient's bills but there's no limit. under the affordable care act medicaid expanded to include 14 million more people whose household income is below $34,000. that's for a family of four. now, under the senate plan the expansion would be rolled back fully by 2024. but most importantly, medicaid itself would be restructured in a big way. instead of a largely open-ended program, the senate plan would reduce the amount of money that the federal government would provide and would also allow states to opt out of coverage from certain conditions. so think of it this way. medicaid would become a smaller less generous program under the senate proposal. >> so how does this senate plan impact taxes in the future? >> reporter: it would repeal the taxes that were enacted to
5:40 am
pay for the affordable care act. that includes a 3.8% tax on capital gains and dividends which applies to individuals with incomes over $200,000, married couples making more than $250,000. the repeal of that tax would be retroactive to the beginning of this year. 9% payroll tax for the wealthy would be in place until 2023 but it would be repealed after that. senate would scrap taxes on indoor tanning salons, pharmaceutical companies and medical device makers. >> so jill what's the bottom line on the new proposal. >> reporter: well, i'm sure we have heard this by now but congressional budget office projected yesterday the plan would mean that over the next 10 years 22 million people would be off the plan, 15 million by next year. there would be a $772 billion reduction in medicaid spending. along with other cuts that would amount to a trillion dollar drop in direct government spending. those tax cuts for the wealthy
5:41 am
owe changes to the affordable care act would cost the government $700 billion in lost revenue so you put that together you have a reduction of the deficit by $321 billion over the next 10 years. if you have -- it may be too early for you so i got your back. i created a comprehensive q & a also including how subsidies will change in the future. go to >> thank you. 5:41. the chp is cracking down on carpool cheaters and efforts to keep traffic moving could soon get a boost from sacramento. >> and a lot of workers in the bay area are about to see a boost in their paychecks. but a new study indicates that might not be the greatest thing. talk about that coming up.
5:42 am
5:43 am
5:44 am
wildfire in good morning, welcome back to "kpix 5 morning news" on this tuesday, june 2. time check 5:44. wow. ha ha! wow! we are taking a look out from the transamerica pyramid due east and can't see a thing due to the "june gloom." it's a gray start to your day. we'll talk about the clearing, the impact on your temperatures. it's traffic and weather coming up in less than 4 minutes. a wildfire in riverside county has grown larger over the last 24 hours. the manzanita fire has now burned 5,000 acres. it's just 10% contained. a voluntary evacuation warning has been issued for the communities of silent valley and others. in just a few hours there's a gathering in san francisco to
5:45 am
celebrate the minimum wage increase. kpix 5's anne makovec is live outside city hall to tell us how the change will affect workers. anne. >> reporter: july 1 is the big day that thousands of workers in several parts of the bay area are going to be getting a raise. here's a look at the numbers. in san francisco, where there's going to be a celebration about this today, workers will be making at least $14 an hour. right now they are making $13 an hour minimum wage. in san jose, they are going to be making $12 an hour on july 1. right now it is $10.50. both cities going towards $15 an hour. san francisco is going to be there next year, san jose by january 1, 2019. this year's boost comes as we hear the results of a major new study out of seattle actually showing that a higher minimum wage could hurt workers. it is a preliminary study from the national bureau of economic research that says the average
5:46 am
low wage worker in seattle lost $125 a month after a minimum wage hike because employers have reduced hours, put off new hiring or let workers go. people here in the bay area say it is all about enforcement. that's why the community groups gathering today say that they are going to be focused on education when it comes to employers and workers to make sure that this new minimum wage is actually being paid. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. highway patrol officers are cracking down on carpool cheaters. chp issued a record high of nearly 47,000 tickets last year. now the metro transportation commission says they want enforcement to be included in an existing bill. it allows electric and green cars to buy stickers to legally use carpool lanes. >> one in five in the morning, one in four in the afternoon, are cheaters. >> the mtc is considering doubling the price of clean air
5:47 am
stickers. chp is thinking about funds for specific carpool patrols. >> do you see cheaters on the way to work or going home? >> no. >> no.
