weeks. and that's because he's trying to scrub the report of anything that may be classified before turning it over to congress, and the public. the justice department now confirms, laura, that report is over 300 pages long. >> so interesting. thanks so much, tracie. 5:03 right now. authorities in davis starting to piece together what led up to the deadly shooting of a police officer in january, but they can't figure out where the shooter got his guns. natalie corona was shot and killed responding to a car crash. the guns used to kill her was not registered to the gunman who later killed himself. under california law he was not allowed to own firearms. investigators do not know if he stole the guns or obtained them some other way. to butte county, hitting a minlgor milestone in the recovery and aftermath of the camp fire. paradise is issuing its very first building permit since the

the fund says companies also benefit from the program. >> so for the companies, what they get out of it is, they get, make an investment and get that investment to turn in to action. we don't sit on the money because the crisis is right now. >> the latest investment brings the housing trust silicon valley tech fund up to $65 million, which has contributed to the funding of more than 2,000 units of housing. 5:05 right now. if you like to cross-country ski or even snowshoe, the back country in yosemite national park is still open. the trails around glacier point road will remain open for another two weeks, past the usual april 1st closing. that's thanks to higher amounts of that snow this year, and new closing date is april 14th. so some time to get out there and have a good time, kari. >> i think we'll see some more snow between now and then. we'll see if that gets extended longer. we start out this morning with some chilly temperatures, some
low to mid-40s. right now we're at 42 degrees in fairfield and san jose at 48 degrees. as you make your way out the door for that morning drive, in antioch, you need to have the heater on for a little while. it will only be 45 degrees, but that sunshine warms us up today. we'll look at all of our microclimates coming up, and mike, you have those problems continuing for the east bay. >> that's right, kari, coming out of the tri-valley into the castro valley and the castro valley "y" is the only slowdown. the rest of the commute toward the bay bridge is building a bit, not a concern, nothing neuron. this big jam crow canyon road toward 238 is because only one lane is opened. fish and game is called to determine whether or not the fuel and hydraulic fluid is a hazmat situation. that could affect the opening, that will affect the opening time. meanwhile in the south bay, a new crash 280 at meridian not a major problem. we'll track the rest of the bay. it's calm right now. marcus? thanks, mike. 5:06 right now. we talk about developments in operation varsity blues.

leading a member of congress to ask sloan at one point, do you foresee a day when we don't hear bad news about this bank? senator elizabeth warren calling for a criminal investigation into sloan and jail time if he's found guilty. sloan a long time executive with wells fargo replaced this man, john stumpf as ceo after the scandal broke some years ago. the criticism sloan was an insider at the time when the bank needed somebody untainted by the problems. wells fargo will find a new ceo from outside the company. on a happier note, congratulations to thee en entrepreneurs and businesspeople in the east bay, the east bay awards last night, they were kind enough to ask me to emcee at the fabulous fox theater in oakland last night. >> that's cool. >> east bay's where it's at. >> there you go. >> thanks, scott. 5:14 for you now. if you're planning to do some online shopping in the coming days, beware, because the
state's new tax law is set to take effect monday. >> better be a busy weekend of shopping. "today in the bay's" kira klapper joins us with a look at what this means for all of us. kira? >> you beat me to it, laura. what this means for me personally is i'm going to be shopping a lot online this weekend, getting the deals tax free while i can. what yous s s alluded to, california could collect use taxes april 1st, that is monday. to break it down for everyone, online retailers who make more than 200 transactions or $100,000 will have to abide by the new requirements. the state is estimating that nearly 27,000 companies will register. that means you'll be paying a little bit more for certain items, you'll be paying tax. state lawmakers say the new law is an attempt to level the playing field. small businesses in california have always collected taxes, but they've been completing with online out-of-state retailers that don't collect taxes.
california is just the latest state across the nation to change online sales tax laws. 30 other states already have put similar regulations into place. the changes all come after the supreme court made a major ruling in the south dakota versus wayfair case. justices ruled that states could require online retailers to collect sales tax even if they don't have a physical presence in the state. that's what it used to be. you have to have brick and mortar existence in the state. >> a storefront. >> exactly to collect sales tax and this changed everything. the good news here for our state is it's estimated that california will earn $787 million in just the first two years in additional revenue because of this new online tax. >> that's good. >> but of course i don't want to pay extra. >> i know, we've gotten used to not paying but at least if we can support california retailers. >> exactly. but you know, tomorrow and sunday could be some busy days for people shopping. >> yes. >> i'm not suggesting anything,
just saying what i'll be doing. >> exactly. thanks, kira. >> yes. let's get a look at the weekend forecast for us, kari. >> finally can buy the flip flops? >> it will be hard to stay inside. we're going to see some great weather for getting out, exploring around the bay area, and maybe even hitting the beach, if you haven't done so already. here is the live look outside in san francisco, and if you're getting ready to head out for a jog, it's going to be another cool start, with some low 50s. we will keep some mostly clear skies and throughout the day, mostly sunny skies, reaching 57 already at noon. the seven-day forecast is up at the bottom of the screen. as we check out our high temperatures for today, reaching the mid-60s for our inland valleys and low 60s for the coast, and the storm that we had has moved on, but we still are seeing some rain and even some snow farther to the north, that stay there s there as our weath pattern clears, high pressure banking in and giving us dry conditions, but by the end of
the weekend, we will start to see more clouds moving in but the rain will be holding off until early next week, but we are not done with that heavy rain, possibly more rounds of rain throughout the middle and end of next week. and some of our early estimates on the computer models show the potential of getting quite a bit of some rain. we'll take a look at that in just a bit. our temperatures looking at low 70s for the inland valleys. we'll see more clouds on monday, still stays warm and the rain moves in, brings in some cooler air by the middle of next week. we're back in the low 60s for our highs. and mike, you've been tracking a couple of crashes. >> one of them is a traffic alert and a car fire reported. we'll shout that out. bottom of your screen by the clock, north 85 at the split with 101. no lanes reported blocked, no reported slowing. south bay, peninsula, speeds are great. tri-valley just fine, westbound 580 jams up though getting up toward crow canyon road. folks bailing off at crow canyon taking redwood road toward "a"
street to get out of this backup. one lane open, only one lane at the castro valley "q" taking you on to northbound 238, it is a problem. we have crews, cal trans crews headed out there to help clean up the absorbent, clean up the fuel, the hydraulic fluid, the big rig blocks all the lanes over there as you get toward the castro valley "y." the rest of the contra costa county drive is fine, walnut creek and concord and upper east shore freeway fine. the bay bridge toll plaza has the backup. the metering lights should be on any second. we have a crash reported at the metering lights but it's off to the shoulder, so fast track has the biggest backup, as you'd expect and a clear peninsula drive, no problems here. back to you. >> thanks, mike. 5:19 right now. coming up on "today in the bay," a southern california horse track reopens today. the changes being made, after 22 horses died. plus walking in space. the work two nasa astronauts are doing right now.

bell and walk in together. i'm talking about the teachers and students, the walk in to class as a show of solidarity, similar to what we saw this past december and this should be noted is not a strike. classes are on. the teachers are asking the district for a 4% raise for the 2018-2019 school year, a cost of living adjustment they say they need in order to afford to live in the super expensive bay area. the district has countered with a 0.71% raise, according to "the mercury news." the district tells the newspaper they would have to make draconian cuts of $28 million in order to meet the teacher's demand of 4% and they also blame the state for underfunding schools. since both sides are at an impasse, the contract negotiations move into a fact-finding phase. next week there will be a neutral arbitrator, he'll examine both sides' arguments and report back his findings. fremont teachers aren't the first ones to find themselves at an impasse. a month ago, when teachers in oakland went on strike for about
a week in order to get their district to agree to their demands. reporting live here in fremont, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thanks for the latest, bob. quarter to 6:00 right now. another health warning for you this morning, it happened again, officials warning people about a possible measles exposure at a popular east bay restaurant. if you ate at sauced bash key and spirits in livermore, this is for you. someone with me sayles ate there as well. the health department wants to hear from people who were at that restaurant between 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. on saturday. they're at high risk of infection. we've been telling you this week about measles exposure after an interflat traveler with the virvi virus visited the bay area and they stopped at 20 different restaurants and stores in the south bay between the 13th and the 23rd. 5:46 right now. last night, president made his first major public appearance since the end of the mueller investigation. >> scott mcgrew joins us now.
the president claims complete vindicati vindication. >> this though he is not to our knowledge seen the actual report, nor have we. what we have seen is a report on the report. a four-page summary by attorney general william barr. here is the president last night. >> total exoneration, complete vindication. you know, it's interesting. robert mueller was a god to the democrats, was a god to them, until he said there was no collusion. they don't like him so much right now. >> now there is absolutely no question, the barr report was good news for the president, saying mueller had found no evidence the president colluded with russia. the president was being absolutely honest, but mr. trump took it too far in that sound bite you just saw when it comes to obstruction. the report does not exonerate him. the report literally says in print, it doesn't exonerate him.
we continue to hear good news about the progress with china. video here of the u.s. treasury secretary and the u.s. trade representative meeting with the chinese vice premier in beijing. it appears they're close to an agreement, if not on where they stand, at least on how the trade's going to work. they have two texts, one in chinese and the other in english and making sure they match up exactly. today was supposed to be the last day great britain belonged to the european europe but they have not worked out a trade deal so the eu granted an extension. we take you live to london where parliament is still arguing over brexit. it's not clear theresa may will stay as the prime minister. it's not clear, frankly, what's going to happen to great britain at all. we're monitoring everything that's happening, of course. you can follow me oni twitter. i'm @scottmcgrew. if you know someone planning to visit our lovely state of
california for the first time, this could be the perfect starter set for them. the seven most instagramable sites in california. that's according to a global travel site not listing the most instagram sites, somehow san diego's balboa park topping the list there, the golden gate bridge is right behind. san francisco's painted lady also appearing there, seventh on the list. the same website puts california third for most instagramable state, behind new york and texas. >> is that a word now? >> it is now. >> it is now. you knew what i meant. >> yes. >> balboa park probably gets number one because the golden gate bridge sometimes is just fog behind you. >> that's true. >> i have some family coming in today and so we're going to be hitting up some of those sites. >> click, click, click, get that selfie stick. >> instagram, i' i'm @karihallweather. so we have some great weather for the weekend and we're going
to see some sunshine and no fog at the golden gate bridge, although it's kind of misting right now. we're going to see that clearing out. our temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 40s for parts of the north bay as you head out the door. in martinez, temperatures at 45 degrees to start out this morning, and going throughout the day, a nice little warmup with that sunshine around martinez, and then you probably don't need me to tell you this, if you're like me and you're suffering right now, tree pollen, grass pollen is high. but i'm still not quite sure what i'm allergic to. maybe it's the tree pollen that's bad. it's ash, juniper and alder the main offenders with the pollen counts. the storm system yesterday is moving on. we have clear conditions that will be with us for the next few days. as that clears out, we will see some sunshine for the weekend, and then by sunday, our next storm system approaches, and it brings in more clouds, but the
rain holds off until about monday or tuesday, and we are not done with rain. we are going to see some more waves of wet weather going into the middle to end of next week and it could bring us quite a bit of rain. we're looking at the possibility of next week getting possibly over an inch of rain in the north bay. the rest of us get a half to three-quarters of an inch toward the end of next week, that's an early estimate. it will turn wet again after a dry weekend and our temperatures on saturday and sunday inland in the low 70s. mike, you still have one major problem. >> it really stands out on a relatively minor commute for most. we're looking over here to castro valley, and over toward san leandro, san lorenzo. west 580 jams up crow canyon road toward 238, only one lane of north 238 is open because of that big rig. there's the fuel and brake fluid spill. chp we asked them how long do you think it's going to take to clear up that? they said a while. not good. we're looking over here, redwood road, grove off of crow canyon
road and get over to "a" street probably a better way right now but the surface street there, "a" street a lot of signals getting very crowded. the rest of the bay shows an easy drive. the problem is coming out of this tri-valley area, and headed over toward the nimitz, so keep that in mind as you plan your route this morning. an option for you is b.a.r.t., there are no delays out of the tri-valley on the dublin, pleasanton line. things are moving smoothly. >> thanks, mike. happening now, tragedy at the grand canyon. a tourist from hong kong died when he fell a thousand feet into the ravine. authorities say that he was trying to take photos. he is a second person to die at the grand canyon in a week. last year, more than 6 million people visited the grand canyon. 5:52. next and all new this morning, backlash against google over an app in the play store. why some lgbtq activists are so upset this morning. plus -- >> i feel like a wide range of explosion and emotion and i can't lift my eyebrows.
corporate equality index. the gay rights organization making that decision, because it says the company's refusing to move a controversial gay conversion therapy app from its app store. index ranks and rates workplaces for lgbtq employees. mountain view-based company has not commented on that decision. spring break is in full swing and smart home cameras and vacation rentals are raising privacy concerns for guests. rental sites have rules for surveillance devices but owners don't always follow them. airbnb says hosts are allowed to have surveillance devices in monday areas and plain sight but the san francisco company's policy says that any surveillance device should be listed in the house rules section. one man's blog post went viral after he found cameras in the rental. >> when you're booking, you want to look at the photos extremely carefully and you want to look at the listing carefully. >> now experts say if you find an undisclosed camera you should report it.
take a look at this video right here. campbell police say they need your help in identifying a bicycle theft. the surveillance footage shows the bandit nabbing a black specialized road bike that was stolen from wheel-away cycle center on east hamilton avenue and highway 17 two weeks ago. anyone with information is asked to contact police. >> i've been in there, that's where i get my kids' bikes. san francisco's first ever female sheriff will not seek re-electi re-election. sheriff vicki hennessy was sworn in 2016 after a four-decade career with the department. yesterday she cited health and family reasons for not running for a second term. she had knee replacement surgery recently and worked with city hall in developing programs that create alternatives to jail and established training procedures on dealing with transgender and non-binary prisoners. new this morning, the national women's hall of fame could lose funding. the group is inducting jane
fonda in seneca falls, new york, and the town has given it more than $278,000 over the years, but after the hall announced fonda's induction, a supervisor said he wanted to cut off financial and service support to that hall. his reason? he views fonda's famous protest during the vietnam war as treason. the house will vote on the supervisor's proposal, coming up on tuesday. fonda is set to be inducted in september. did you know more and more young adults are using botox to stop aging effects? doctors say botox is increasingly becoming a popular way for 20-somethings to beat wrinkles before they begin. the number of 20 and 29 years old or through 29 i should say who get botox increased nationwide every year over the past decade. >> we all post our pictures on youtube, instagram, snapchat so we're constantly judging ourselves not just in the mirror in the morning, but we're comparing ourselves to the photo
shop pictures of celebrities and all want to look like that. >> when i was wearing foundation i could see a line after the day was over, you see it kind of settling, but then after i take my makeup off at the end of the day, i could still notice it, so i just definitely the past year or two noticed that difference, and so i wanted to kind of prevent it before it deepened or got more noticeable. >> doctors say botox helps prevent wrinkles and is relatively safe for all ages, but too much too soon can be a bad thing. they say muscles naturally weaken over time, and if botox keeps those muscles too relaxed, other areas in your face will work in overdrive, aging you faster than you'd hope. >> i don't think you got wrinkles in your 20s. >> some people do. 5:59 right now. coming up at 6:00, the college admissions scandal back in the headlines. several of the people charged are due in court today. we're going to take you live to boston with what to expect.
