storm-ravaged puerto rico get back online. it's sending a team to restore internet connectivity. it's the same team that tested drones and planes to beam internet to rural locations. ceo mark zuckerberg also said facebook will donate $1.5 million to relief efforts. coldplay is getting the cold shoulder from the city of santa clara. city officials denied the band's request for a curfew extension for its concert at levi's stadium on wednesday. this comes just days after ed sheeran canceled a tour date at levi's over the 10 p.m. curfew. each concert has made up to $800,000 for the city's general fund. the national anthem controversy could enter a new stage this evening in green bay, wisconsin. packers players have asked fans to join them in a show of unity by locking arms in the stands during the national anthem before tonight's game against chicago. player protests during the anthem to criticize injustice and promote equality spread
5:38 am
after president trump made statements about the protests. >> i think there's been some positives, um, conversations come out of it. i know on our team, we have had fantastic team meeting where we kind of talked about a lot of things. things i'm not going to talk about because it's meant for just the locker room. >> live coverage of the packers-bears game is at 5 p.m. right here on kpix 5. in the nhl, sharks forward joel ward is considering kneeling during the national anthem before tonight's preseason game in anaheim. ward is canadian, one of about 30 black players in the nhl. the team supports player's rights to free speech and expression. turning to taxes republican lawmakers have released an overview of a tax proposal that would reduce both corporate and personal tax rates. while the plan is the starting point in the process, cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to discuss how the changes might impact you. so jill, what does the president want to do with
5:39 am
individual taxes? >> reporter: the plan would reduce the number of tax brackets from 7 to 3. so the new brackets would be 12%, 25% and 35%. there is also a possibility of adding a fourth to the highest payors. the current top rate is 39.6. the lowest is 10%. now, missing in this announcement, a breakdown of income levels to which the new rates apply. kind of hard to figure out how it impacts you without knowing that. the plan calls for increasing the standard deduction. the current standard deduction is $6,350 for individuals. it would go up to $12,000. and to $24,000 for joint filers. that could make the process a lot easier come april. now, the plan would also look to raise the child tax credit which is currently $1,000 up to an unspecified amount. it would create $500 tax credit
5:40 am
for elderly, not children. it would retain deductions for mortgage interest and charitable contributions but pay attention to this one, california! it would eliminate the state and local tax deduction. that hurts those in high tax areas. california, new york, new jersey, the plan would also abolish the alternative minimum tax and the estate tax. >> jill, a lot of ceos focusing on this. corporate taxes. what's the proposal there? >> reporter: well, it would slash the top rates from 35 to 20%. but just to be clear, very few companies pay that 35% rate because of all the loopholes. but i think everyone will be happy about that. there is some discussion about repatriation of offshore cash, no detail on that. a new tax rate would actually be created and it would apply to pass-through corporations like an s corporation or a llc. a 25% tax bracket would be the
5:41 am
top level for those owners. now, remember, those owners currently pay taxes at their individual rates. so if you are at 39.6, and you drop down to 25%, that is a huge win. about 95% of businesses in the u.s. are structured as pass- throughs. they generate a majority of the government's corporate tax revenue. this is the beginning of the process. we have a lot of sausage making ahead of us. i will be breaking down the impact as more details emerge. >> the last time the tax code was rewritten was in 1986. thank you, jill schlesinger in new york city. time now 5:41. a closed-door meeting between the senate and twitter representatives. what officials are examining that involves the 2016 presidential election. >> plus, this morning, the state's department of education is deciding which textbooks will be used in public hos for the next decade. an lgbt advocacy group is not happy with how history is being written.

5:46 am
dade back in 2011 but it has taken publishes that long to come up with a curriculum. they said it should have more than just a token reference to harvey milk. they wanted books to point out when figures had same-sex lovers, too. >> for example, when all students find about different kinds of families in second grade it would include families with two mothers or two fathers. >> reporter: groups aren't happy with these recommended textbooks either. they say the material unlawfully redefines marriage. it teaches a new view of gender which is not approved. the state commission will be examined 12 textbooks to recommend for students through 8th grade. in the newsroom, jackie ward, kpix 5. >> how many of those 12 textbooks are lgbt advocacy groups okay with? >> one group in the bay area, our family coalition, recommended 7 books for approval with minor changes.
5:47 am
two were completely rejected. and one needs what they are calling substantial changes. only 2 were deemed adequate in their current form according to the lgbts. 5:47. we'll check with the forecast in a bit but let's start with traffic with jaclyn. how are things? >> they are looking better than yesterday. 680 taillights southbound and we are looking at north main street 4 minutes from willow pass to highway 24. but heads up on highway 24. we have reports of a new accident possibly two separate crashes. we are getting right near pleasant hill road. it doesn't appear to be blocking lanes. but once we get some more information we'll let you know. chp is heading to the scene. your ride on 24 looking good in the green from 680 to 580. about 11 minutes. over at the bay bridge toll plaza, things are definitely slow. we are in the yellow tracking a
