and special needs families like the chronically homeless. the extension of the program was voted down earlier this year. governor brown and other legislative leaders introduced new language to be voted on. the agreement limits total greenhouse gas emissions and requires businesses to buy or trade allowances in order to pollute. the goal has been to reduce the state's carbon emissions by 40% of what it was in 1990. but governor brown wants to continue the program now through 2030. governor brown talked to cbs about this before traveling to china this summer to talk about climate change. >> this is about an existential threat! it's not stopped and slowed down. it will kill tens of millions of people! >> reporter: now, the reason it was voted down once already is because the previous language that would have led to higher gas prices. they are trying to alter that but there will still be other changes to the program giving the california air resources board the authority to set a
5:04 am
ceiling price on carbon. so basically what that does is determine how expensive permits would be. now, it is possible we could see lawmakers voting on this thursday morning. that's not set in stone yet. either way, it's going to need two-thirds of the vote in order to pass. but that could prove a big challenge. live in san jose, sandra osborne, kpix 5. water rates for much of the bay area are going up almost 20%. the east bay municipal utilities district is talking about it today. and exhibit's jessica flores live in oakland with details. >> reporter: good morning. it's a controversial proposal that has complaints pouring in. east bay m.u.d. officials say they have to raise rates because they just didn't sell enough water during the drought. and because sales are down, they have to bring in revenue somehow. and the revenue is down thanks to people doing what they were told to do: conserve water during the drought. now, those very customers will now face paying more.
5:05 am
east bay m.u.d. will vote on the proposal to increase 19% over the next two years for its 1.4 million customers. east bay m.u.d. says it's critical to invest in infrastructure, everything from water treatment plants, aqueducts and 4200 miles of pipe. still, some customers feel they are paying the price for saving water and director john coleman says he will be voting no on the increase. >> when we ask them to conserve and save, they did. now they're paying the price. >> reporter: east bay m.u.d. nearly doubled rates over the past 10 years raising rates annually 7.1% over the past decade. the proposed rate increase is for 2018-2019 will be 19%. the proposed rate increase means an average family will pay $5 more a month. the board meets here in downtown oakland at 1:15 p.m.
5:06 am
jessica flores, kpix 5. a judge will impose new restrictions on the oakland police department after a scathing new report blasting the mayor and police chief for the handling of a sex scandal. it all started back in september 2015 when oakland policeman committed suicide leaving a note saying other officers were having sex with an underaged prostitute. opd is being monitored by a federal judge. the department informed the judge about the suicide but not the note. the next year the court found out and ordered a new investigation by an outside law firm. >> they must be investigated. they have to be held accountable. >> the judge called the hearing yesterday to consider new oversight measures and whether to order discipline for those involved in the botched investigation. a ruling is expected in the next few days. today state lawmakers will be voting on two bills aimed at protecting patients. the first to ensure patients are notified of this their doctor has been placed on probation for any serious professional misconduct.
5:07 am
the other woken sure that state officials -- would ensure that state officials were be notified if registered nurses are fired for harm to patients. they will vote on it tomorrow. today at stanford medical center healthcare workers will release a report on patient infections. they say a lack of training and understaffing contributes to a, quote, continuing problem at the hospital. workers say that too often they aren't notified when a patient is in isolation and unknowingly walk into patients' rooms without proper protection. turning to politics, donald trump donald trump, jr. said he met with a russian official last year to discuss an adoption program. later on he said there was more to it. now there are reports that he attended the meeting for damaging information on hillary clinton! to put this in perspective, let's turn to our washington insider marc sandalow. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> trump campaign officials meeting with russians doesn't seem like news anymore. we have been hearing about it
5:08 am
for months but this seems more significant. >> reporter: yeah! anne, this is the first time if these reports are true that the russian -- that the trump campaign specifically was told that the russian government was trying to hurt hillary clinton and help donald trump. that's what the report is. now, the trump response is all over the board. they say it never happened, the russians never tried to throw the election to donald trump. if it did happen, they didn't know a thing about it. that trump raised it with putin last week. that the democrats are more at fault than they are. they have talked about even discussing this. it's fake news. if these reports are true, it means that four months before the election, the head of the trump campaign, donald trump's son and his son-in-law who is a top aide, jared kushner, all sat down in a at which they were told it was part of a russian government effort to hurt hillary clinton! that would really shed some, um, that would really, um, cast
5:09 am
their talk in doubt. >> marc, there have been more and more revelations. is there anything illegal or unethical about meeting with the russians? >> reporter: no. i was in russia two years ago. i spoke to a lot of russians. they're reasonable people. if john podesta, hillary clinton's campaign chief, had been told, look, donald trump is a corrupt businessman, we got papers to prove it he has some corrupt shady dealings in russian, here's a russian businessman who will walk you through it meeting like that would have been something podesta would have done in a second! the difference here is, one, according to the "new york times," they were told it was a russian government effort. now we're talking about messing with u.s. elections, government to government. and second of all, they apparently lied about it. i mean, donald trump, jr., to fill out national security forms where he was asked if he had any meetings with any foreign national. this meeting with a russian, it
5:10 am
never came up. [ pause ] >> meanwhile, the hot topic in dc right now is certainly healthcare. the senate is back in session and republicans will vote to repeal and replace obamacare no later than next week. is that realistic? >> reporter: you know, the a's might play the giants in the world series. hope still springs eternal in washington. it's possible. will it pass? the big fight at this point is a conservative push to be able to sell insurance over state lines. that would mean that california's, um, stricter insurance rules would, um, be able to -- people in california could buy maybe an alabama plan that would cost much less. it would bring down prices because they could get insurance. that's the fight that's going to gone. by the way, donald trump has asked the senate to pass healthcare, tax reform and
5:11 am
raise the debt limit before the august recess. there's 13 days before that begins before they go on recess. >> thank you, washington insider marc sandalow. 11 minutes now after 5:00. a new battle developing over whether california's recent gas tax hike is legal. >> and we'll check in on the effort to contain a wildfire that's already burned more than 29,000 acres near santa barbara. >> 32-degree temperature span across the bay area today. cooler before we turn hotter. and the hazard you need to know about. >> and speaking of hazards, we have some overnight roadwork. could present a hazard for drivers. three lanes closed along a stretch of interstate 80. is it causing a big backup? we'll have details and show you coming up. who are these people?

5:31 am
the details. >> reporter: it's a controversial proposal that has the complaints pouring in. east bay m.u.d. saying they have to raise these rates because they just didn't sell enough water during the drought. revenue is down and that's thanks to people actually doing what they were told to do, conserve water. now those customers could be paying more. east bay m.u.d. saying that they will want to raise rates because these water sales are down 19% over the next two years for its 1.4 million customers. they say the rate increases are critical to invest in infrastructure, everything from water treatment plants, aqueducts and 4200 miles of pipe. some customers feel they are being penalized for saving water. >> it can't go up again! it just went up. i mean, we're all working together to conserve. how can they punish us for exactly what they asked us to do? >> reporter: east bay m.u.d.

5:35 am
along the pacheco pass on highway 152. now, the crash is near bloomfield. the backup stretches towards lovers lane. and looks like they are waiting for pg&e crews to head over there. they should be there probably within the next 15 minutes. so hopefully they can get all that cleared up. if you know someone who traveled 152, a lot of truckers use that route between i-5 and 101, let them know they are in for slowdowns. your ride heading into san francisco, an earlier crash no longer blocking lanes. southbound 101 right at the 80 split, speeds in the green at the lower deck of the bay bridge. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, the metering lights are on and things are stacking up. the backup stretches towards the foot of the maze. it's just beyond the 880 overcrossing. 23 minutes for drivers from the maze into san francisco. in hawaii, a u.s. army soldier is facing terrorism charges. the fbi says erik kang tried to
5:36 am
give military documents to isis. the 34-year-old is a highly decorated soldier who did tours in afghanistan and iraq. but a criminal complaint argues that he swore allegiance to isis. kang allegedly told an undercover federal agent that he wanted to, quote, kill a bunch of people. this morning, investigators are going through the wreckage of a deadly military plane crash. the aircraft crashed into a soybean field in rural mississippi yesterday. an official with the marines says the kc-130 experienced a mishap but hasn't yet provided any details. witnesses say this fire burned for hours. >> crackling noise. it was just -- all over. but it was loud. it was just scary cuz after i seen all the black smoke it was horrifying. >> authorities say 16 people were on board at the time. investigators at the scene are supposed to hold a press conference this morning with an
5:37 am
update on what they have found. we'll keep you posted. governor jerry brown is one step closer to extending california's "cap and trade" program for another decade. kpix 5's sandra osborne is live in san jose with the latest. >> reporter: the big goal in all this is to reduce carbon emissions by 40% of what california had back in 1990. now, as it is, that agreement is set to expire in 2020 but the governor wants to extend that for another 10 years keeping it going all the way until 2030. now, so far, a proposal on this extension has already been voted down by lawmakers this year because of concerns over higher gas prices but after major back and forth trying to please environmentalists and also republicans, governor brown and other legislative leaders reintroduced two bills with new language. in a statement to the "l.a. times," brown said, the legislature is taking action to curb climate change and protect
5:38 am
vulnerable communities from veal poison. as it is, "cap and trade" limits total greenhouse gas emissions requires businesses to buy or trade allowances in order to pollute. the new proposal would give the state's air resources board the power to set a price ceiling on pollution permits. environmental justice groups believe the deal, though, gives too many concessions to oil companies. now, lawmakers could vote on this as early as this thursday evening. there is no date set on this. but if you are wondering where these dollars go, you can actually see the money behind me, these are for low income and special needs families and the homeless. this apartment complex is partially paid for by "cap and trade" money. live in san jose, sandra osborne, kpix 5. more smokers are quitting since the hike of the tax on cigarettes this year. in april a voter-approved tobacco tax went into effect. and smokers saw the average
5:39 am
cost of a pack of cigarettes go from $6 to $9. according to data from the department of tax and fee administration, cigarette pack sales have dropped 56% year- over-year in the two months following the tax increase. that amounts to a drop of about 82 million packs. now that we're in the heart of summer, it's tempting to kickback and ignore pressing money concerns. but cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger has the perfect antidote to this summer brain freeze with her annual summer kiss for our money. let's start off with this. what is kiss. >> reporter: keep it simple, stupid! it is the perfect mantra for this time of year. let's start with your bill paying. researchers found about one in five adults does not pay all their bills. now, some of them are struggling. but for the vast majority, the problem could be a case of bad timing. they are paid after the due dates of their bills. remember, most credit card and cell phone companies as well as
5:40 am
utilities allow to you change your due dates. so select a better one to match when you get paid. you should also establish automatic payments even for a small amount. that helps you make sure that your most important expenses get paid. and hopefully helps you avoid or maybe minimize some penalties and fees. and, of course, there are some bills that are more important than others. kind of like financial triage, right? so while not paying a credit card of loan or student loan on time could ding your credit score, not paying your rent could get you evicted so pay that first. >> when does to make sense to combine bank accounts? >> reporter: i think that right now you have a couple of different bank accounts floating around, combining them is going to probably help you avoid some fees. it actually may help you get better deals and satisfy some minute numbers and streamline your financial life. the same rule applies to old
5:41 am
retirement or investment accounts looking for a home we change jobs so often, we have a lot of retirement accounts floating around. combining those accounts makes it easier to monitor your entire portfolio. also ensures their money is properly diversified. so once you get everything consolidated, be sure you have that asset allocation plan and then set it and forget it. choose auto rebalancing so you don't have to worry whether market gyrations are changing the allocation or more risk than you want. for more, go to >> that's the acronym of the day, the financial acronym of the day, kiss. keep it simple, stupid. jill schlesinger in new york, thank you. 5:41. we are learning more about a potential disaster at sfo. involving an air canada jet and four other planes on the car mac. >> plus another sign of the hot bay area housing market more on a red-tagged home that's drawing a lot of interest.
