south korea says that if north korea doesn't respond by ending its nuclear program - there will be even stronger sanctions.. steve and pam? firefighters in california are dealing with more than just flames ... when taking on wildfires. the problem hundreds of them are being treated for this season. plus a close call in raging floodwaters. more video of this dramatic rescue... and the victim's reaction to get trapped. and it is a sticky subject... customers being able to sue banks when they feel they have been wronged. the debate going on right now... to change the law.
republican lawmakers could soon overturn a rule that makes it easier for consumers to sue banks... like wells fargo over its fake account scandal. ( pam ) the arbitration rule is set to go into effect in march -- but kron 4's washington correspondent jessica smith found out .... congress may block it . pkg nats readinglauren saunders -- with the national consumer law center -- is reading us part of a banking contract that consumers often sign, but rarely read. lauren saunders, national consumer law center: the fine print of contracts for credit cards, bank accounts, payday loans, takes away your day in court and forces people to go one-by-one into a secretive arbitration process. the fine-print forces consumers to settle disputes with banks through arbitration, instead of lawsuits.the cfpb's arbitration rule will ban those clauses. nats wells fargo tried to use its arbitration clause to keep customers from suing, after news broke that it created millions of fake accounts. eventually, the company bent to political pressure.lauren saunders, national consumer law center: finally after resisting court for years, has come to the table and settle the case as a class-action, but most cases don't get nearly the publicity that the wells fargo cases have gotten. jess standup or tracking idk: opponents of the rule say arbitration is faster and less expensive for consumers. it's why
congressman steve stivers says the house voted to repeal the rule. rep steve stivers (r-oh): this is a no-brainer. arbitration is quicker. lawsuits drag on about 12 months and arbitration happens very quickly. democratic senator sherrod brown says repealing the rule would let banks off the hook if they wrong consumers. sen sherrod brown (d-oh): the house seems to have forgotten what wall street did to this country ten years ago. they had this amnesia about what wall street did. the senate could vote on repealing the rule when it gets back in september. ( pam ) in a statement, the
c-f-p-b told us, it studied this issue for five- years and found blocking group lawsuits .... makes it nearly impossible for consumers to get justice. consumer groups generally support the rule, while financial groups -- like the american bankers association -- want to see the rule repealed. ( steve ) google is trying to squash the uproar created by an employee's viral, internal memo that has been called sexist. the memo suggested women don't get ahead in the tech field because of biological differences. a company vice president responded today to the memo... maintaining google's commitment to diversity and inclusion. the memo... which is ten pages long... has popped up and created a firestorm on the internet. as to who wrote it... that remains a mystery. an update on the many wildfires burning in california tonight. the detwiler fire in mariposa county ..... is just about
fully contained. it started to the west of yosemite national park last month... destroying dozens of homes and burning more than 81- thousand acres. over the weekend we learned, gunshots sparked that huge fire. a two- thousand dollar reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the case. ( pam ) in southern californa... a man is under arrest tonight... accused of intentionally setting several recent wildfires. the suspect was caught late last week near a fire ... east of los angeles. investigators say... evidence left behind at the scene of eight fires... led them to the man. they say the fires started along roads at just about the same time of day. if convicted... the suspect faces up to 19- years in prison. ( steve ) fighting a wildfire is hard enough... but in santa barbara county... nature has thrown firefighters a curveball. crews tackling the whitter and alamo fires say they are frequently running into poison oak. even with all their gear on, firefighters are not immune to
the itching it can cause. more than 400 of them have been treated so far for poison oak. and here is the rub. they don't have to touch the plant... they can get it through inhaling in the smoke. posion oak can also seep through clothing... causing the annoying itch. one solution is to get a special soap to wash the oil off if you think you have been explosed to it. heavy rains and thunderstorms brought flash flooding to the san antonio, texas area today... there were evacuations - and people are still being urged 'not' to drive on flooded roads. catherine heenan is here with details of how some people just were not listening.... (catherine) people were still getting trapped today despite the warnings.....and still trying to cross high, rushing water... that included this man... his rescue
was caught on camera...and he was in a tough spot.the water was getting so high, he had to climb onto the roof of his car. and by the time fire crews reached him - the water was almost covering the windshield. there were similar scenes being played out around san antonio....including a woman who got into the same situation only about a half mile away. as for this man - the rescuers say he was very lucky.... wally yates/san antonio fire department: he's ok -- a little embarrassed that getting stuck out there. he had about a 45-minute wait. i can imagine that was pretty nerve-wracking. in the time we were here the water came up over a foot. this is a very bad spot. it's very difficult. as you can tell from what we were doing it requires the ladders and the boats. we're fortunate that we've got the ladder far enough back that we could reach him. and it wasn't just texas.new orleans is drying out after torrential rains flooded parts of the city for the secondtime in two weeks. roads and interstates were closed for part of the day...
the city's drainage system is supposedly state of the art....but city council members have called a special meeting for tuesday -- saying that's clearly not true. pam and steve? let's take a look outside right now for the current conditions in the bay area... (pam) chief meteorologist brittney shipp joins us now with the forecast. high pressure over the desert southwest will strengthen slightly over the next few days, resulting in somewhat warmer temperatures across our region for the remainder of the week. for the most part, expect temperatures near seasonal averages through the week and into next weekend, along with dry weather conditions.

(pam) a seventh home near a massive sinkhole .... in land o'lakes, florida has been condemned. officials condemned the home this morning, after condemning two others over the weekend. the giant 265- foot wide sinkhole ... opened on july 14th. crews worked to fill it ... but had to stop friday, when the edges collapsed, expanding its size by 30- feet. they resumed work saturday, bringing in limestone and dirt to stabilize the sides of the hole. officials say, the hole appears to have stabilized... but they are continuing to monitor it.

"unless you can get both parties leaders together to agree were going to do this, its going to be very difficult to get done" this week the president will host meetings in new jersey to talk about tax reform. the administration had hoped to
get this all done by the end of august.but congress won't even start talking about taxes until september. but now some wonder if its even possible to get any reform done this year. political science professor michael cohen of george washington university tells us change is possible because tax reform appeals to more voters. "those are issues you can really move the needle on, it wouldn't surprise me if taxes got done, it wouldn't surprise me if infrastructure got one" in washington, i'm mark meredith. (steve) the city of san francisco is negotiating with fast-food empire mcdonalds to purchase one of their locations.(steve) this is that mcdonalds located on the corner of haight and stanyan streets in the haight-ashbury district. the city attorney's office says there are numerous
