military and fight isis. over the weekend during mr. trump's day 100 interview with "face the nation" moderator john dickerson, the president spoke about congress. >> it's just a very bureaucratic system. i think the rules in congress and in particular the rules in the senate are unbelievably archaic and slow moving. >> in the proposed budget bill the g.o.p. walked away from efforts to defund planned parenthood. the white house also backed away from language to take away federal funding from sanctuary cities. in a statement senate democratic leader chuck schumer said this agreement is a good agreement for the american people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table. the house is expected to vote on the budget this week before sending it to the senate for approval before friday's midnight deadline. if this deal passes congress it would mark the first significant bipartisan legislation passed by congress since mr. trump took office.

overnight. we actually have a news conference happening right now with the president of the sunnyvale employees association so let's listen in for a minute here. >> pardon me? >> reporter: are you able to talk about the terms of the agreement? we know it was on the table with the city. >> city. >> i know what they are but what i'd like to be able to do is get it out to my members before they hear it from the public. i owe it to them and they stood behind me and the bargaining team so we want to make sure they can hear that this morning before we release the details. >> is it posted what the city was offering? >> there was a little bit more put on the table and it wasn't quite what we were asking for so, you know, we like to maybe say we found a happy medium. >> reporter: how long had it been since you had a raise and what was the vibe from your members going into this? >> yeah, it had been over five years since we had had a raise to our take home pay and it was definitely being felt by the
members, so it was -- i think they are going to see -- feel the reprieve a little bit. but realize that a lot of us are still playing catchup from some of the recessions that -- you know, concessions that we had to give so, it's going to help our families. >> reporter: right now you're listening to a news conference happening in sunnyvale, this after the city finally created some kind of negotiation and agreement with the workers union for city employees. we of course are going to listen in, get more details for you right here on kpix5. reporting live in sunnyvale, sandra osborne, kpix5. in our bay area watch as soon as june carpool lane hours could be extended for southbound highway 101 in marin. the metro transportation commission is hoping for better traffic flow between north novato and the civic center which is considered very degraded. commuters with two or more passengers would be able to use the carpool lane from 6:30 to 10:00 a.m., which is an extra
hour and a half. you likely won't see any self-driving cars at the san francisco airport. the airport's director sent a letter to the dmv asking for a ban at the airport. he says he wants to install license plate readers so they can be notified of any south driving cars. so far no response yet from uber or lyft who plan to start testing the vehicles. time now 6:15. if you're listening in the east bay, we've got a lot of traffic situations out there including some fatalities. >> yes, this is our third accident, fatal crash that we have tracked this morning and two of them have been on 880. so that is a very dangerous stretch, apparently, this morning for drivers. you will need to be careful as you hit the roadways, as you would any day, but live look right now at chopper 5 over the scene of this deadly crash, this is along northbound 880 as you're approaching fifth street. we just got word from chp that one lane has reopened, but still expect those delays to build. we have another accident in
this same location just south of that crash there and it is definitely going to keep drivers very slow, so if you're getting ready to head out the door and this is typically your normal route, instead of trying to use that one lane, i would still head on over to 580. you will be in good company but it is still moving right at the limit there and we will get a quick check of those travel times here in just one moment. but chp has advised that the big rigs, use 580 at this point. we have seen a big backup over at the bay bridge toll plaza. we did have a couple of earlier problems across the upper deck of the bay bridge. things look like they are starting to clear up but slow again as you are approaching fremont street. one car possibly blocking that off-ramp there. northbound 880 from 238 towards the maze, just under a 30 minute ride except that's likely to get much worse now that they have opened that lane there and along 580 for drivers who would like to use that as an alternate route, that remains in the green.
again, your ride across the upper deck of the bay bridge very slow and still in the red. that is a check of your traffic. i will send it back over to you, kenny. in florida firefighters are turning to the national guard for help battling fast moving brush fires. this helicopter from the national guard helped drop water on a fire ripping through pasco county on sunday. firefighters say at one point the flames were moving at 15 to 22 miles an hour through tree tops. crews contained one brush fire in the county and are still fighting a second. right now severe flooding is battering much of the plains and midwest. in oklahoma many have been forced to leave their homes after 8 inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours this weekend. and in missouri several people had to be rescued from high waters. tornados also struck several small towns in eastern texas. strong winds knocked down trees and powerlines. at least 15 people were killed across five states. the threat of severe weather moves to the mid-atlantic and

some witnesses have indicated that possibly this is a racially motivated hate crime but, again, that is not confirmed. we are hoping to learn more from police. >> that was erica mandy reporting from san diego. thank you. right now a manhunt underway in maryland for an escaped prisoner, david watson has been on the run since friday. this after he overpowered a guard while being taken in for a psychiatric evaluation. he was serving a 100-year sentence for attempted murder. maryland police are hoping a $5000 reward will help lead to his capture. new this morning, an investigation from the associated press finds that there are thousands of sexual assaults reported at k through 12 schools across the country. kpix5's jessica flores is live in the newsroom with the details. jessica. >> reporter: the investigation reveals shocking data from schools across the country. the a.p. looked at high schools, middle schools and even elementary schools. the report finds that thousands of students have sexually assaulted fellow students. unlike colleges and universities, k through 12
