5:06 pm
the busiest periods. today, board members say not so fast. sherri ly has more on the budget battle. >> reporter: metro's general manager formally proposed his budget to the board's finance committee. the board members had their own ideas on how to raise fares and how much. this year, riders will pay $12 million extra to travel during the busiest time of the day. dropping that peak surcharge is no small change. >> in my mind, eliminating the peak-of-the-peak, the cost of $12 million at the same time and suggesting a $7 million budges increase. substantial explanation. >> reporter: metro's proposed budget would make up the loss by raising base fares on rail and buses. it's visitors who use paper fare cars that pay the most, four or $6 one way. the board members weren't thrilled. >> i am very concerned that riders within the district and visiters are going to slow the
5:07 pm

5:08 pm
fare increases, subsidy increase is painful. >> reporter: the board must decide by june how to spread that pain among riders. now, in addition to the budget that is proposed, the committee is proposing looking at several different things, keeping the peak of the peak surcharge. a two-zone flapfare system or a surcharge on paper fare cards instead of a flat fare and this is going have to go to a public hearing before being voted on and any fare increases will take place this summer. >> thank you. >> and metro is inspecting more rail cars after a part fell off. the friction ring on the brake assembly detached from the orange line train and that came off of the blue line last month. it's inspecting the 6,000 series cars followed by the 1,000 series. earlier, it completed inspections on the rest of the fleet. as a precaution, metro warned

5:11 pm
individuals. in a time of war, they happen and they're always bad apples. you can't compare this to abu ghraib. >> i spoke with the retired army general last night who said this is a lack of discipline and a lack of leadership. is this happening more often than not or is it that lack of discipline and lack of leadership and an isolated incident? >> there could be many explains for what is happening. i have seen media reports about steroids abuse with regard the individuals. this is all hypothetical and hearsay. knowing the marines, this is an unfortunate exception and i am not worryd this is a trend we should see more videos in the future and i don't expect to so that. >> and penalty for these dies -- guys? desecration of the dead perhaps? >> this is in the marine corps. i would expect knowing the prestige and ethics of the marine corps, serious punishments once the
