senate passed this weekend also includes some sweeping changes to health care policy. the senate's bill would repeal the "individual mandate" that requires all americans to have health insurance. analysts say that would result in an estimated 13 million fewer people having insurance over the next 10 years. premiums would also rise 10 percent more per year than they would without this change. the bill would also trigger major cuts to medicare, eliminate tax breaks for interest paid on student loans, and elminate tax credits for pharmacutical companies to develop drugs to treat rare diseases.

thanks camila ( marty ) a huge backpack give-away in marin county helped out victims of the north bay fires. on saturday "warm wishes" stuffed 5-thousand back packs for the homeless. they were given out to 40 different agencies in the bay area to distribute to those in need. this year, the packs also went to nor cal fire shelters. volunteers fill them with hats and gloves. and the packs for kids have something extra inside.
9:35 am
is the 24th year of the program. and the warm wishes program is always looking for donations to help keep it a success. ( marty ) the victims of the north bay wildfires are still in need of so many necessities like housing and clothes. but there are priceless items that are overlooked. that's why a group of volunteers spent all day taking free, professional family portraits for families who lost everything. kron four's spencer blake has more.

"the fact is you've got something you can rebuild from. you can look back at a photo and remember that time." nick flint and his wife say this is basically the first family outing they've had since the fires destroyed their home."it's very nice that somebody would take the time and the equipment and everybody involved with it to do something nice for somebody else."at the end of the day, every family walked away with a whole s-d card full of áall the digital imagesand will be
