9:09 am
packed. we have rvs, thousands of them already here. for people who have never taken part, describe it for us. it is like a big nascar party up here in sonoma. >> it is an all weekend event. there are interactive displays that you experienced this morning. great food and activities all morning leading up to the big show. there is an air show on sunday before the race. a little of everything. >> if we have the video earlier this morning as you talked about, we had the all access pass. i got to ride around with one of the drivers this morning and experience this course firsthand. it is just under two miles each lap. ten turns. left turns, right turns. that makes this a very unique course in terms of the courses that these drivers experience on the circuit. >> you bet. we are one of only two road courses on the circuit doing ovals. it is a challenge for the guys. they love the challenge. we are looking forward to a good race. >> we don't do any ovals here at sonoma. >> no. we think outside of the oval.
9:10 am
>> i appreciate that. enjoy your weekend. >> thank you. >> dynamite weather here. the fog had kind of rolled over the hills here at the raceway this morning. it has burned off. it is warming up quite nicely. it will be a beautiful weekend for racing. i want to send it over now to sal. sal, you're going to talk about the traffic situation in and around the raceway throughout this weekend. it can be rough for folks. >> it sure can be. if you're not prepared for it, if you're driving to the area, obviously there will be a traffic advisory around the raceway, alex, this weekend. highway 37 and 121 will be congested. the heaviest traffic is from 3:00 to 7:00 tonight. lane controls saturday and sunday. anyone not going to the race should avoid the area all day saturday and sunday. this is the map of the area just in case you're not familiar. so, you know, you're driving up, maybe you want to do a little bit of wine tasting. this is not the weekend to go this way. i'm not discouraging you. if you want to get up to the area where there are wineries, stay on 101 and perhaps use 116
9:11 am
of. that will be crowded with you you can get through. i would not recommend leaving that vat owe and coming up to black point, up to sears point unless you're going to the race. same with highway 37 from this area here. this gets jam packed getting out to what used to be called sears point here. and it is just word to the wise. now, some people will be avoiding it. so highway 29 will take extra traffic. i think you can still get through. if you're going -- let's say you want to go to a different part of napa. the keyword is get on the road early and avoid the congestion in the area for the very big race that attracts a lot of people to the raceway. please know that it will be a tough weekend to drive in the area. >> i like to say, sal, if people really want to go wine tasting, it is be just sonoma and napa county. >> yeah. >> livermore. >> south bay. >> santa cruz mountains. >> it is not -- list eastbound, it is not i am -- listen, it is not impossible. if you want to get out there, get out there early and pack
9:12 am

9:13 am
9:14 am
>> welcome back. let's take a look at the market on this friday morning. some energy companies are clawing back some of the sharp losses from earlier this week. as you can see, the dow jones is up 11 points. the nasdaq is now up 17 points. health care stocks were doing well earlier because we are seeing the senate republican plan to replace the affordable care act. as you might expect, democrats are unhappy because it will strip health care coverage from
9:15 am
millions of americans. >> but a number of key republican senators are also unhappy and their votes could doom the legislation. >> monte francis has more on the legislation. >> reporter: protesters gathered outside of the office of mitch mcconnell furious over the plan to make drastic cuts to medicaid. 43 people were arrested, some of them in wheelchairs. chairs. >> save our liberty. >> reporter: this as senate republicans unveiled for the first time their plan to dismantle obama's signature health care law. >> obamacare isn't working by nearly any measure. no amount of 11th hour reality denying or buck passing by democrats is going to change the fact that more americans are going to get hurt unless we do something. >> reporter: but democrats say the new bill cuts health care for people who need it the most. >> the president said the house bill was mean.
9:16 am
the senate bill may be meaner. >> reporter: it phases out the medicaid expansion to the states by 2020. replacing it with a new system of federal tax credits to help people buy insurance. it keeps some protections for preexisting conditions. but it takes away requirements imposed on the states for plans to cover maternity care, emergency services, and mental health treatment. the senate plan also repeals the tax increases on the wealthy imposed by the affordable care act. e act. >> these cuts are blood money. people will die. let's be very clear. senate republicans are paying for tax cuts for the wealthy with american lives. >> reporter: four conservative republicans have already said they oppose the bill. at least five other moderate republicans have also expressed concern about the proposal in
9:17 am
its current form. just three no votes and the bill would fail. >> my hope is not to defeat the bill but to make it better. >> reporter: the president who said of the house version that he wanted a bill with more heart said on twitter, i am very supportive of the senate health care bill. look forward to making it special. remember, obamacare is dead. monte francis, ktvu fox 2 news. >> and next week the congressional budget office releases its analysis of the bill. at that time we should actually find out how many people stand to lose health coverage under the plan and what impact it could have on the premiums. many republican senators are waiting for the numbers before they decide how to vote. many medical organizations oppose the bill. the american academy of pediatrics says it could hurt children. other medical organizations say it may leave millions without coverage and could lead to hospitals reducing services or
9:18 am
even closing. the american medical association is still reviewing the plan but strongly opposes limits on medicaid spending. and aarp says it would allow insurers to charge older adults five times as much as younger adults. the group is also raising concerns about cuts to medicaid, saying it could put millions of seniors at risk of losing the care they need. aarp represents some 38 million people over the age of 50. it is calling on every senator to vote no on the bill. president trump says he did not record his conversations with former fbi director james comey who he fired. on twitter the president said, quote, with all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, i have no idea whether there are tapes or recordings of my conversations with james comey. but i did not make and do not have any such recordings. after the president fired comey, he warned on twitter that comey, quote, better hope there are no tapes of our
9:19 am
conversations. house minority leader nancy pelosi is brushing back complaints from democrats saying she isn't going anywhere. some congressional democrats say she is at fault for the defeats in the special elections in georgia and south carolina. they say in order for democrats to take back seats in the mid terms, pelosi needs to step down. pelosi has become a target for republicans on the campaign trail. they can't recapture the house with her at the top. in a meeting she defended herself saying she is worth the trouble. pelosi has been in leadership position since she helped win the house back in 2007. coming up next on mornings on 2 the 9, teaching people how to avoid sexual assault allegations. the controversial tour that bill cosby is planning after a mistrial was declared in his own sexual assault case. security will be tight at this weekend's pride celebration. up next, the extra precautions that police are taking.

9:21 am
9:22 am
judge. >> as we've been talking about this morning, san francisco is getting ready for one of the biggest weekends of the summer. organizers of the pride celebration are putting out the welcome mat for the parade and other activities this weekend. with the recent terrorist attacks, security is being increased. we are joined live by robert, a san francisco police officer. good morning, robert. >> good northering, everybody. happy friday. >> happy friday to you. let's go to civic center plaza. what should people expect? are you going to have metal detectors? those wands that are waved often at people as they make their way into events? >> absolutely. so events -- pride events are going to be having extra security measures from metal detectors and wands. we will have full staffing. we have canceled all days off, making sure that everyone is on the streets, making this event as safe as possible.
9:23 am
>> robert, let me put this delicately. this is kind of a boozey event. i have been there many times. people are drinking. so are you actually allowed to have drinks on the street? people do it any way. when people are drunk, they don't make the best decisions. are you looking out for those kinds of things. >> you're absolutely correct. we want to make sure that people know that the laws prohibiting open containers, drinking alcoholic beverages out in public is going to be enforced. that will be prohibited throughout the city. there are going to be venues where alcohol is going to be provided and you can partake if you are of age. party responsibly. if you're going to drink, please don't drive. if you are going to drink, make sure that you are responsible and you're able to take care of yourself. we don't want to -- we will definitely respond to any kind of medical emergencies out there. and we want to be able to
9:24 am
respond to all different kinds of incidents. for someone who just didn't make the right decision to stop their parties, so to say, we don't want anybody getting hurt out there. >> robert, are you expecting more people to attend this event maybe in years past? we were talking to some of the event organizers and they are expecting larger crowds given the political climate and a lot of interest in san francisco pride and other pride events. do you expect more people to turn out? if so, how does that change things for you guys? >> well, this is the largest lgbtq celebration in the country. given the forecast for beautiful weather, we're expecting the normal crowds as we have expected in the past. please expect the traffic delays, road closures, as well as a lot of pedestrian traffic out there. so we're taking extra measures to make sure that everyone is going to be safe out there. just follow the laws, follow
9:25 am
the traffic closures. and we hope that everybody has a good time. just be patient as you travel through the city. whether you're going to be in a vehicle or public transportation or any kind of ride share. >> robert, real quick. road closures, are there a lot? do you recommend that people not drive around there? i know that a lot of streets are closed. >> so this would be the perfect time to utilize public transportation. and be on foot if you can. there's going to be a number of road closures just based on the footprints of the different pride events. but then there also may be just the grid lock traffic with all of the people coming into the city. so not only is it pride weekend where people from all over the world come and celebrate events, but we also have summer travel and people -- tourists coming to visit san francisco. >> so much focus on civic
9:26 am
center plaza this weekend. market street for the parade. what about tonight? you mentioned that it will be packed in the castro. are you putting more forces, foot patrols down in that area? so we are definitely aware of where the foot traffic increases on a friday night for pride weekend. we have stores -- resources ready to go and to respond to any incident throughout the city. >> fbi, are they helping you out? any other law enforcement agencies? >> we're coordinating with all of the law enforcement agencies. they're all aware that this is a busy weekend. that potentially, you know, things can go awry with lots of crowds and traffic. so we are keeping each other abreast. and we are communicating closely this weekend. >> thank you, officer. have a safe one. >> thank you. have a good weekend. >> again, we have put more information about pride right there for you on
