ticket would be just the price of the actual toll fee which is $6. we had 28 collectors who took the other jobs or either took a severance package. we had a chance to talk to the last toll taker who left work. this is what they had to say. >> i have family and sometimes i am happy and sometimes i set. this is something that i believe that the people who are displaced can reinvent themselves with something better. this is a new door opening for them and they can go on a new journey. >> why did the golden gate
bridge do this? they did this to save monday. they stated that will save about $60 million over the next few years. the bridge was having some type of shortfalls. nonetheless, some of them are being honest and they believe that this will not work and they think they're just a part of the golden gate bridge just as anything else. >> more trouble for the new span of the bay bridge. this time a lease 30 of the giants bolts that hold together the new bay bridge has snapped. caltran is considering replacing all 288 of them. engineers
believe that the problem is with the law bolts themselves and not with the bridge to design. while they do not have a time line on how they're going to fix the problem, or know how much replacing them will cause, caltran insists that the new span is said and they do plan to open at the day after labor day. >> the time is at 7 05 a.m.. and about 10 minutes from now the supreme court will consider the defense a marriage act, the second of back-to-back day marriage cases. yester day the court heard hearings on california's proposition 8. the voter approved a ban on same-sex marriage. it is a constitutional challenge to a law that prevents a legally married gay couples from collecting federal benefits, and generally available to straight married couples. >> i will tell you that the
cult's are getting bigger as the more animals on. it is not as big as it was yesterday. it is still an impressive number but as you mentioned will adjust minutes away from the next argument began. they will really be zeroing in on what to talk about. they define marriage as a man and woman and now they want to know what can be done about the benefits and whether or not they should or should not receive them. at the heart of this it if they are married under federal law they do not get things like social security benefits or other spousal benefits. of
course, and this is really taking the steam. the people that are standing outside of of the accords are saying that this morning. this does and the train on top of on social media. arrow lot of people talk about this and there's a lot action mannheim this. what is constitutional and what is not constitutional? >> yesterday, the release of audio of the 20 minute hearing. the notes that would do the sampling today? >> yes it will pretty much be the same drill as to how the process will work. they will receive a hour and 50 minutes to argue their case. we have to wait all this wraps up and then there is audio that may be released
to the public so you could hear the questions. a again, the heart of this is for the justice system ferrol whether or not the federal government can say who gets benefits and who does not. the other thing i want to point out is that the administration will not be fighting for this federal law. this is because the administration says that they supported. this is another question in itself whether not they are allowed to do that. >> thanks renrene marssh reporting live outside the supreme court this morning. coming up in the next half- hour, a political expert michael yaki will have more

>> welcome back. >> the supreme court has begun hearings on the defense of marriage act. yesterday's the court heard arguments on california's proposition 8. the voter approved ban on same-sex marriage. a section of the federal defense of marriage act is before the justices this morning. it is a constitutional challenge to the law that prevents
legally married gay couples from collecting federal benefits, generally available to straight married couples. the defensive measure access the marriage may only be a relationship between a man and a woman for purposes of federal law, regardless of state laws allow same-sex marriage. >> this is basically what this is all about and the question is whether or not the federal government should determine what marriages. traditionally, historically lick it was of to the state. >> yesterday, it was of the right to marry and now this the right for the ones who're already married. >> this is something that was brought up. he stated that in california a lot of laws are passed that gives them the same benefits the
one thing--why do we care? this question is answered today because it is a clear note. if the federal law does not recognize the marriage then all of the benefits will not matter. even under the old, care the same question comes up if you are married and you buy health insurance. if your honor recognized as married then you have a different case. all this c into place and then the question comes up to how they are together. >> until you say that there is something that may indicate how they will go with today. >> i think we have to start
with both of these cases and there is a link between them that we want to address. the supreme court does not take this lightly. they use these as ways of principle. a lot of people stated that after yes to that were backing off and that they should have buyer's remorse. they can put both of these cases out some standing. yesterday's case was where the opponents could represent the state of california. i think this is a lack of better words the chicken. i think that will make an opinion and if you looked at this the only way that these two cases, more is if they decide that they can do this nearly or broadly. they can either decide a, that marriage is defined by the stating that
they have the right to do what and that the federal loss and i give them all. the people there push proposition it may win more everett is a mistake but i think they will do this is my gut feeling that that will probably say that they will recognize the states who recognize that and that that will throw wal out. it's >> proposition they took that away and taken away that right did violate the equal costs. this is what i think. >> will check back with you in a 30 a.m.. >>h michael at 8:30 a.m..

construction of the bay bridge. you may have heard earlier this morning that a number of bolts of crack or either broke. joining us now is a spokesperson for the transportation commission to talk to was about this discovery. >> what does this mean for overall opening of the bridge? >> two different questions. as far as the opening we do not anticipate any impact on the opening of the new bridge. but between now and september we have some bolts that need to be fixed. the contractors are looking at options and that will decide on the course of action. >> will there be any
problems with accessing the bridge? are some of them buried in concrete or hit and? >> where it has been identified this is covered by the road that and for all purposes is inaccessible, but there are other connecting rods on this structure that we can access and those will be removed and analyzed. this will tell us how many may need to be replaced whether it is all of them or some of them. >> it has not been determined yet if all 288 of them will be replaced? >> yes. that decision has not been made. >> when will that decision be made? >> it should be made within the next couple of weeks.
