effort. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the goal is to try to protect renters during the housing crisis and to keep rent prices in check. at noon today organizers will be holding a rally outside of oakland city hall and they are pushing to close a loophole in state law. they have gathered enough signatures to put what is called the affordable housing act on the statewide ballot. if this measure passes it would repeal the 1995 law that allows landlords in cities with rent control to raise the price of a unit to the market rate after a tenant moves out. the same law also bans back rent control on homes and apartments built after 1995. oaken city councilmember rebecca kaplan says that rent in the bay area and beyond are hurting families.
repealing the act will certainly help though. >> we are facing a crisis of housing displacement and the action today is a step toward changing california law so we can protect renters from skyrocketing rates. >> housing advocates say repealing this will protect tenants and limit how much landlords can raise the rent. there will be similar rallies to this one being held in sacramento and los angeles. this event in downtown oakland gets underway at noon. we will have full coverage throughout the day. >> alex savidge thank you. we will continue to follow this story. congressman ro khana met with residents yesterday to talk about skyrocketing housing costs. >> i can encourage the development of affordable housing. i can try to find funding for public transportation to improve

every few weeks michelle robertson and alex martin produce a series that takes a look at why people are leaving the bay area. the series examines where people are going and if they are coming back to the area. for more on this michelle and alex join us live, thank you for coming in. so when i think about housing costs, rent, mortgage and housing but it is not just that. it is also gas and food. what reasons are people packing up for?>> obviously high cost of living. that is number one but also the traffic, the crowded and the general sentiment that there is this monoculture of technology. whether it is true or not but ultimately you come here as you are excited and young and you cannot settle down and get a
house. >> so let's start in california, where are people going in california?>> a big one for people in california which a lot of us want to stay because we have family ties, sacramento is a huge destination. we find there is a little bit of a difference depending on the socioeconomic class. so with middle income and lower income people they are likely to stay in places like sacramento or inland into modesto or fresno. they are trying to stay as close as possible. when you have a former tech worker who is not necessarily struggling to make ends meet but once a better quality of life, they are going to places like portland seattle and austin where you have the emerging tech industries. >> what about the argument when someone wants to stay because there are more opportunities? do you find people saying that?
>> ultimately technology is here. we are the hub of technology and so i think it is hard to discern what is public sentiment about wanting to leave and what is happening. when you actually look at the census numbers the population is growing in the bay area. 8000 people have come recently but the caveat is that the domestic net migration is dropping so that means people from the us, they are not moving here in the same numbers they are leaving. more people are leaving from the us. >> we had this debate, would you call it an exit is? is that accurate? what % are leaving?>> i would not call it an exit is. we do not need to sound the alarms yet. it is reflective of the general public sentiment. the survey is done where people say they want to leave and that
is something to talk about. is it really happening? i don't know, but people are talking. >> so what about politics? do politics come into play? we are talking about money but sometimes people are fed up with california politics. i have a relative like that.>> that is true, we did a series of stories people leaving for the south and the way they feel is split. some people want to stay because of the politics. a lot of people say when they move out something they miss is the diversity and the political mood. the bay area bubble, some people do miss it. >> but some people say it is worth the move?>> exactly. it is hard to put a price on those kinds of things but it is really easy to see when you're paying your mortgage for much lower. >> are people coming back? maybe they test out?
>> here is the thing there is no place like the bay area. we are sticking around so yes.>> do you agree? >> people do want to come back. we just started the series one year ago and we have been talking to people for one year and they have left more recently and there has never been someone who didn't miss something about the area.>> well, i came back. michelle and alex thank you. >> we have put a link to the facebook page for the series on ktvu.com. look for it in the web links section under the "ktvu mornings on 2" tab also you can find it on the mobile app. we will be right back after the break.
from marin county looking onto the bay between richmond and san rafael. it is a nice-looking day, just a little bit of fog as we bring in steve paulson. i know this will be the warmest day of the week. >> yes it is by far because by friday we have 60s but today will be warm and cloudy. >> we will enjoy it. >> today is the day where we are warming from the coast to the bay and there are already 60s. 61 livermore and san jose 62. temperatures will be pretty warm but not as warm as yesterday so we have a slight cooling trend but mostly sunny nice and mild with 70s and 80s as fog is on the move tuesday wednesday and thursday. then we have those high and mid- level clouds but in advance and
is not coming for a couple of days. already low 70s and mid 60s, fairfield 67, concord buchanan 66, redwood city 64, novato 64. only by the immediate coast will we have the cooling, concord and buchanan 6 degrees warmer than yesterday but everywhere else 1 to 2 degrees. i expect a westerly breeze kicking in with half moon bay southwest. there is patchy fog but the low is moving toward us and by thursday and friday it is really sending us down because the water temperatures are cold. 49 bodega bay and san francisco 52. warm today with a lot of 70s and some 80s. a nice monday and then tomorrow it is good but in the forecast is coming for the end of the week. 60s, 70s and mid 80s today and again we should top out today but the trend is cooler by thursday and then friday to saturday the possibility of light rain but more cooling and clouds. so today is the day.
>> okay, today is my day. bart is moving closer to carrying passengers on the new south bay extension, there will be a new stage of testing taking place along the entire 10 mile extension to the berryessa station in san jose, today they will begin testing on the tracks from warm springs. they will be running up to 20 hours per day and every day for the next several months. the berryessa station will be opening later this year. the remodeling work in san francisco is one year behind schedule, the station is getting a $30 million facelift. it is supposed to be a five- year job but they are 18 months behind. improvements include new fair gates ceilings tiles restrooms and ticket machines. according to the clinical these delays have been pushed back since 2016 because of requirements with a contractor.
rallies will be held today in oakland sacramento and los angeles to repel a law that allows landlords to raise the price of rent when a tenant moves out and bans rent control on units built after 95. so question of the day, what is the best way to address the housing crisis? 40% say rent control, 21% build more housing. we were talking about packing up and leaving, dirty % will be doing that but 9% say something else. there has been conversation on twitter what do you see on social media? >> someone on facebook says stop building houses this place is already overcrowded and another viewer says my rent went up $500 in four years. >> alan campbell says change rules, no more tax transfers other than to your spouse and we have heard that from a lot of people.
there are a lot of solutions and by the way you can always chime in with how you feel by visiting twitter and using our hashtag. for more on the other headlines we have been working on let's get to dave clark.>> here are some of your top stories. a scared this morning for a southwest airlines plane leaving oakland for burbank. flight 1673 taxied to the runway and there was a report of smoke coming from the engine. half a dozen fire crews rushed to the flames but minutes later the call was canceled, the plane went back to the gate and passengers got on another plane which landed safely in burbank about one hour and 20 minutes late. the san francisco mayor mark farrell is taking a tough approach to clearing the homeless of the mission district. the chronicle reports mark farrell promises an aggressive crackdown on homeless encampments. farrell told the newspaper san francisco has gone from being

they consider this a domestic violence incident and they do not think the public is in danger. there is no longer a public threat but at this point they are talking to the suspect the wife and the adult female relative trying to determine a motive. >> it is important for the community to know there is no outstanding danger. all of the weapons are accounted for and we are sensitive to the family now. there are adult children related to both the victim and the suspect and they will learn soon that their father is deceased and their mother is under arrest. >> reporter: the union city police lieutenant confirms police responded to another domestic dispute call at the same house involving the same couple 14 years ago in 2004. you heard the lieutenant mentioned the couple has adult children out-of-state and they
are in the process of notifying them. as you mentioned this is a bit unusual for the community, this is union city's first homicide of the year and last year they had two. police do not believe there is any threat to the public but they are investigating determining the circumstances that led up to the killing. >> allie rasmus thank you. investigators are looking for the cause of a deadly fire at an apartment in san francisco on saturday night. investigators spent the day gathering evidence trying to figure out what caused the fire that killed a woman who has been identified as jessica castro. castro was remembered as a warm outgoing devoted mother and grandmother who lived in the downstairs unit of the building. relatives say that the entire family is devastated by the unexpected death. >> everybody is hurting in the family. it is unfortunate and you would never wish this to happen to anybody.>> the upstairs
