7:05 am
supporting that? >> that's not a reasonable agreement between the senators. >> reporter: all of this came after the senate tried to pass two bills to reopen the government. the republican one failed to reach the needed 60 votes, and so did the democratic one, and that may help clear the air politically, but today many federal employees will miss their second paychecks, and anger is growing. >> how ludicrous it is that this government is shut down over a promise that the president of the united states couldn't keep. >> reporter: many republicans say it's useless to send the president a bill that doesn't give him at least something for a wall. >> you can try to teach a goat how to climb a tree, but you're better off hiring a squirrel in the first place. it's been weeks since tsa workers have gotten a paycheck, and people are coming together to offer help. >> reporter: good morning. several organizations will meet here at the oakland international airport to offer a little bit of relief for the

7:07 am
you know, but i do feel for them. >> you know, that's kind of an unfortunate thing relying on the government for your, i don't know, your pay and pension, and i think there could be something to be said about a little bit of self- reliance or planning ahead, but these people are caught in the middle of this, and they didn't ask for this. i do have a certain degree of sympathy for them. >> reporter: travelers i talked to also said they got here a lot earlier than usual in case of delays or holdups in lines, and there's been a lot more tsa workers calling in sick because of the shutdown for financial reasons, and live in oakland, alyssa harrington, ktvu fox 2 news. alaska airlines says service to a seattle air airport from the bay area has been delayed because of the shutdown. flights have been put off for 3 weeks. they are pushed back until at least march. the passenger service to

7:09 am
rebuild? >> i don't know that yet. >> the cal fire investigation took 15 months to complete. cal fire's report could complicate the lawsuits filed against pg&e and the company's plans to file for bankruptcy. lawyers representing the survivors of the tubs fire said pg&e is reliable because they did not turn off the power despite the dangerous wind conditions, and they will move forward with the lawsuits against pg&e despite the report from cal fire. they can certainly not immunize themselves saying it was a senior citizen living on a farm on a hill who is responsible for this. they decided to keep pumping power through the lines knowing there was going to be a spark some place. >> reporter: pg&e announced last week they will file for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. there's no indication their plans have changed. pg&e said they are facing major challenges for potential liability for other destructive

7:18 am
for generations, as you saw there. her little girl, a stable home means everything. >> yeah. >> well, yeah, they are kind of putting an end to the big generation thing year after year. >> by the way the contra costa interfaith housing gala, the ruby slippers, yes, no place like home. i will be there emceeing. we will help the families in need. if you would like tickets or information, the link on the website ktvu.com. >> great story. >> excellent, thank you, frank. our time is 7:18. we will get you out the door. allie rasmus is watching the commute. what's the latest happening out there, allie? >> we will tell you about the crash in marin county. usually it's fairly quiet, and we don't have problems there too often, but there's one this morning. this is marin county, rowland boulevard, ramp to southbound 101. that's in san rafael.

8:16 am
tonight? what am i going to eat tomorrow? when am i going to -- like those are not any of my concerns anymore. >> reporter: creating community within has become a huge self- esteem builder at gpa. 96% of those who have left the garden parks apartments have become self-sufficient. it's a long-term approach to a problem that is playing the bay area, but it requires patience and funding. >> we have the model, and the next task is to take it to scale, and that's not that hard. we know how to do it, and there's a huge need in the community. we can continue to build more garden parks and to serve more families, and to turn things around for the whole community. >> it means a lot, and more importantly it means a lot that my kids won't have to go through what i went through as a child. that's not going to happen. >> reporter: and that, of course, is the whole idea to kind of end that cycle of homelessness, and a footnote to lori. she lost custody of her oldest
