"today in the bay" tracie potts joins us live in washington where there is growing angst. tracie, any idea how much information from the report is expected? >> reporter: well, we certainly could.
we know that the attorney general said there are specific types of information that will be blacked out. secret grand jury information. anything pertaining to an yon going investigation, things that by law he cannot reveal top secret. and the obscure category of things that could be considered embarrassing or could damage the reputation of the third parties involved. now, does that mean they will protect the names and oeutdities and testimony of white house staffers who talked behind the scenes about what the president has or has not done. thats not clear. that is raising a lot of angst in the white house. >> should be interesting to see. tracie, how is the white house preparing for the release of the report? >> reporter: so just got some updated information on that about 10 minutes ago from one of the president's attorneys, jay
sekulow. they are meeting today, the legal team. they have met every day this week. they have prepared a counter report. he now tells us it is about 30 pages. but they have been modifying it in recent days. so they're changing that around, back and forth. based on what they hear may or may not be included in this report. as of late, they had not even decided whether to release the report. they are preparing their own report to release. what's in the report, what they have to fight back at really depends what comes out tomorrow morning. >> exactly. it will be interesting to see when they release that, if they do at all. nancy pelosi, she sat the bar very high for impeachment. are we hearing anything from the house speaker ahead of the release, though? is she saying anything else? >> reporter: well, she said she wants to see the full report, which is not what we're expecting tomorrow. she wants to see the entire 400
pages unredacted. so do most democrats. in her latest interview, she said it's not worth her time to go after impeaching president trump no matter what's in this report. but democrats are still pressing to see the whole thing and not the redacted version, the blacked-out version. >> tracie, thanks so much. a lot to keep track of there. on capitol hill, president trump vetoing a resolution to end u.s. involvement in the yemen war. the resolution passed the house of representatives earlier this month and the senate in march. it marked the first time both chambers of commerce supported a war. the resolution limits the president's ability to send troops into action. this marks the second time mr. trump has used his veto powers. new, a man faces charges for threatening a school shooting at mission high in san francisco. according to the examiner, that

"today in the bay" pete suratos joining us live for this update. so dixie is out? >> reporter: yeah. that's right, marcus. dixie is out. the dixie school board voting to change its name. there's been months of meetings on this. but as far as the new name, that is still to be determined. they will form a new committee to figure all of that out. this is video. this is the meeting that took place last night here in san rafael. several hours of public comment regarding this name change. the board did vote to change the name in a 3-1 vote by the school
board. this controversy dates back to the late 1990s with some calling the dixie name racist. folks on the other side said it is named after an indian woman named dixie who knew the man who donated the land for the first school back in the 1800s. as i mentioned, a committee will be forming to decide the next name. the cost to change the name will be roughly $40,000. one woman speaking at last night's meeting about the importance of changing the name. >> you have the choice tonight to be the ones who go down in history books as doing the right thing and changing the name. or you can wait for another few years. and this is going to come back again and another school board will vote to change the name. >> reporter: i want to point out, no district funds will be
used for this name change. it could cost $40,000 to change the name. we will see who tpaots the bill on that one. the name will officially be changed august 22nd. pete suratos for "today in the bay". >> we will be waiting to see what that name will be. >> new overnight, the city of oakland steps up to help school funding. the district believed they would get it from a newly approved tax measure. the result is being challenged because the measure received less than two-thirds vote. the city will not start collecting that tax parcel until the appeal is sorted out in court. 5:07. new this mornin vowing to pressure. san francisco health leaders sign off on building at

at stake, millions of dollars for local schools. kris sanchez is live at stanford with what's next. kris, what happened here? >> reporter: well, marcus, we're still trying to figure that out. at this point it looks like the whole deal is on hold indefinitely. at least according to one of the negotiators on the county's team. now, we have talked about this proposed development here on "today in the bay" for you. so you might remember that this is a really massive proposal we're talking about here. we will hoe you the numbers here. 4,000 acres in all in unincorporated santa clara county. 2 million square feet of academic space. 2,600 beds. 550 housing units for faculty and staff. and proposed $138 million over four years for palo alto unified school district. as the supervisor put it, it wasn't a good-faith negotiating
effort. that's according to the county. the county wanted to be the primary negotiator in all of this so in theory all the concerns would be addressed. also roads, traffic mitigation, open space protection and such. so that's the back story. the story today is that the county is shutting down all negotiations at this point it seems because stanford went around the county, and to the school district directly. here's what the stanford vice president of government and community told them weekly. we are surprised by such a decision because supervisor and the county had actively encouraged us us to engage as part of these negotiations and we believe this discussion is not in violation of the ground rules for this process. we are trying to get confirmation ourselves. we have reached out to the office as well as palo alto unified and stanford university. we will limit know let you know

stop violence. the vote came after they gave recommendations how to improve current policies and protocols. a follow-up for you this morning. san jose's plan to change its schedule for electing a new mayor does not receive the minimum number of votes needed. instead of during the governor's election years. the mayor won the new term last june. supporters argue that the move would increase voter turnout. but at yesterday's meeting, the measure failed. opponents fear it might allow national politics to overshadow the mayor'srace. >> 35:35 right now. former press secretary heads to the east bay. sean spicer is speaking at u.c. berkeley. >> bob redell live for us.

a speech. he was back later that year after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on security. if you are interested in hearing sean spicer speak tonight, it will be 7:00 to 8:30 tonight at evans hall at uc berkeley. the event is free. it appears there are still tickets available. reporting live here at uc berkeley, bob redell, "today in the bay". >> thanks so much, bob. 5:37. a new lawsuit claims apple misled investors by lying about iphone sales. the case is seeking class-action status. everyone who bought apple stock over the holidays could be a part of it. sales were slumping while the u.s. was in a trade war with china at the time. apple told investors it was going into the holiday season with its strongest lineup of products and services ever. thauzs of people lost money because that wasn't true. apple has not responded. >> netflix is promising to offer
