7:44 am
want. the price of the projects is not just big, it's swollen from the estimates and they'll hit jerry brown on that. not on much but these two. >> it's swollen because of the delay, delay, delay. we are 50 years behind schedule for moving the water from north to south as the population shifted to the bottom line. >> you're focusing on just the cost. keep in mind that on the water side, the southern california users pay for it. >> what are the big selling points on both high speed rail and possibly this one is jobs, it's a big jobs project as california coming out of the recession, is that a strong enough point to sell? >> what else is he going to talk about? sell it. >> you're really hostile when you're on a train to nowhere? >> train to nowhere. >> if you can move me from downtown san francisco to union station in los angeles in three

7:47 am
emergency unemployment compensation program extended benefits, a combined total of months in states. the congress opted not to be in the recent budget agreement, guaranteeing heated debate in the senate next month. the majority are in favor of an extension and cost more than $25 billion a year, but most republicans are against it unless the cost is matched dollar for dollar with cuts elsewhere in the budget. house speaker john boehner. >> i said we should consider it as long as it's paid for and as long as there are other efforts to help get our economy moving once again. >> in huntington, west virginia, lisa floyd lost her job eight months ago and found another one just in time. >> nothing aggravates me more than to be pigeon holed to be thinking the long-term unemployed. it's to me. >> making $7,000 less than she

8:01 am
people and maybe minimize the effect on other residents. we're happy about it. >> reporter: so far, these stolen items only traced back to one of the three burglarized homes, but police caught the alleged criminals and they're still working on finding that bike. brian webb, kpix 5. commuters along el camino, it could have its own reign. the agency is starting the feasibility of the proposed plan. >> we wanted to go out into the community and talk to the expanded communities impact and talk to the riders and get input on it. it's the purpose of the study to get community feedback. >> the plan is part of a strategy to reduce congestion by having people travel more efficiently.
8:02 am
there's less than three days less in 2013 which will go down in history as the bay area's driest calendar year on record. keep in mind, those go back to 1849 and as kpix 5 don knapp reports, the shortage of rain is measured not in inches but in feet. >> borders are lamenting the lack of snow in the sierra, but no snow is a more worrisome concern for the supply. the main source of water for the east bay district. it's san francisco's sierra reservoir. it may be too soon to be worried but they're concerned. depends primarily on rain, connected in rains in and around the mount. this year, the county is headed for a record low with 10.5 inches of rain. reservoirs normally 68% full down to 58%. the district is calling for a
8:03 am
cutback and may consider rationing for the meeting. the lexington reservoir is dramatically low but that's deliberate. the district pulled out the water and pull it in shortage. the santa clara district. >> we make sure it percolates so it's there for us in the wintertime and the spring and also makes room for winter rain in our reservoirs. >> there's no need to worry about water for next summer, at least not yet. >> in february, it looks like weather conditions haven't changed. then we'll really start to talk about what changes in water use efficiency we need to call for in the community. >> reporter: even in los angeles, the driest rainy season in memory is not yet a concern because l.a. gets water from northern california and the river. water managers are socking it away saying they have record amounts stored throughout the system. still, they are hoping for rain. >> we're all mindful of the
8:04 am
fact it's gorgeous out here. we appreciate it. at the same time, we're concerned because it will have been the driest calendar year on record. >> reporter: in san jose, don knapp, kpix 5. >> it certainly has been dry. let's get a live look at our weather on sunday morning. clear, there's a beautiful shot of the bay bridge in san francisco. here's what to expect. santa rosa, chilly. livermore, a little higher at 43. here's what to expect later today when you plan your day. mostly clear start and cold in spots. sunny and mild and it's a spare the air day. we've seen several of those in the past week for consecutive days and then, dry for the rest of 2013. going into the new year. >> we need some moisture. let's get something going here. >> this year, one store in the bay area that came up again and again. it's not going away. >> sat down with two political insiders and asked, what was the big story? >> no question, it was tech and
8:05 am
it will be tech in the year of 2014. >> what do you see in the crystal ball? >> it will continue to reshape the bay area, the wealth continuing to shape the bay area and start to reshape the politics. >> there's a libertarian streak in the tech community that's not quite in sync with the san francisco progressive liberal itch. we'll see a clash there. they want government hands off. >> you've got to know, joe, that in the tech world, they really have not yet focused on the traditional kind of things that happens politically. ron conway is probably the most important connection between old politics and the potential new politics of the tech world. i would guess that if the attack continues to come on block from moving employees from one spot to another and doing some of the other things, you'll find the techies coming out being as creative as
8:06 am
they've been on producing iphones and all the other incredible gadgets they've done. they're going to be the gang gadgeteers of the world of politics. >> what does it mean for organized labor? >> organized labor is the mother's milk of traditional democratic politics here and the techies, they don't play that game. it will be a push and pull of that. there was pushback on the bart strike, for example. why is the system gone this way or these old work rules in place? why is the paper scheduled like that? there's a disconnect there and that's going to be continuing in 2014. >> i've been watching as far as the reshape of the bay area, but it's become increasingly the biggest issue is affordability. in san francisco, we have seen housing prices go up and all across the bay area, we've seen much of the same. the question is, what can be
8:07 am
done to help the middle class in this? as somebody in the housing business for years, what do you think? >> you'll organize the whole business of housing production in the entire san francisco bay area, not just san francisco. there's land in san francisco and you have some of the most incredible powerful political forces that do not wish to have san francisco developed except on their schedule. that's the cartel, the choo choo organizations, et cetera et cetera. they're not interested in having houses really built in san francisco unless it's built on their direction. in my opinion, oakland has got to become the bedroom community to respond to the affordability question. >> you mentioned that, housing seemed to be the big story of the year, right? >> it really is. you've got local residents who have always lived here coming up against the newer techies moving in. there's not enough apartment units. >> the golden state warriors
8:08 am

8:09 am
anything is going to work. >> reporter: a divided supreme court struck down part of the voting rights act and handed down a pair of syndicates. it issued another opinion allowing same-sex marriages to resume in california. republicans continued their fight to repeal president obama's healthcare law and refused to pass a budget until parts were scrapped or delayed. texas senator ted cruze spent 21 hours speaking against it with a bedtime story for his daughters. >> i do not like green eggs and ham. >> reporter: the standoff led to a 3 day partial government shutdown. >> i'm disgusted with them. >> reporter: healthcare.gov, the web site where americans were supposed to buy insurance launched october 1st, but did not work. >> actually, i didn't realize it wouldn't be operating optimally before the launch. >> reporter: critics argued it went beyond healthcare.gov. >> this bill is fundamentally
8:10 am
flawed. it's causing people to lose the doctor of their choice. causing them to lose their health plan. >> reporter: a military judge handed bradley manning a 35 year prison sentence for giving thousands of classified documents to wikileaks but the army private was acquitted of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy. former contractor, edward snowden, took on the intelligence community revealing programs and finding asylum in russia. chris christie won reelection in new jersey and told washington to take note. >> if we can do this in trenton, new jersey, maybe the folks in washington, d.c. should tune in their tv z right now and see how it's done. >> reporter: christie's speech hinted at a presidential run in 2016. danielle nottingham, cbs news, washington. >> so disturbing experience for some horseback riders in california. find out what went terribly wrong. >> and the popular local beach
