sponsored by the state senator of san francisco. scott weiner said lawyering laws are used by police to discriminate against people of color and the lgbtq community. in a statement, governor gavin newsom said, "to be clear, this bill does not legalize prostitution. it simply revokes provisions of the law that have led to the disproportionate harassment of women and transgender adults. while i agree with the intent and i'm signing the legislation, we must be cautious about the implementation." california republican's are pushing back against the new law saying that it will jeopardize the fight against human trafficking. senate republican leader scott wilkes said, "california as a hub for this crisis. our government should be doing everything it can to combat it, not enable perpetrators." there is growing speculation as governor gavin newsom run for reelection in california about some adds he will be running in florida

you can expect for the 4th of july holiday in just a few minutes. first, people took to the streets of sacramento yesterday for the bans off our bodies rally. the group on the peninsula starts at noon at washington park. protesters will march to city hall and back to the park. president biden met with nine democratic governors to discuss how their states are moving forward to keep abortion accessible. we have that part of the story. >> the battle over abortion laws is heating up. and in no place, more intensely then wisconsin. >> the staff had to go out and say to people in the waiting room that they could not have the procedures. >> what was the scene like that day? >> traumatizing. >> abortion stopped
immediately at this clinic and across the state after the supreme court ruling. >> like many states, wisconsin had an abortion ban on the books, an old one that went into effect when roe v wade was overturned. the wisconsin law written in 1849 before the civil war and before women could vote is a near-total ban. the only exception, to save the life of the mother. >> we don't have any precedent for how this 19th century ban applies to the medicine then. >> the republican-controlled state legislatures being sued to get the ban overturned. the governor and he vowed to protect doctors from prosecution in the meantime but there is only so much they can do. >> we don't have the authority to tell them they cannot use the resources to enforce a law on the books. >> there is ambiguity. >> absolutely. >> they say that is why they
are taking it to the court. >> it is the state top law enforcement officer and the duty is to enforce laws that protect human life. >> legislators for pro-life wisconsin won an even more restrictive abortion law that more clearly defines on a mother's life is at risk. >> we will need a pro-life legislature and a pro-life governor to do that. >> the governor and the attorney general are up for reelection and so are more than 100 state legislators. the law here will come down to a vote in november and in a state where votes are largely split down the middle. it is a tossup. >> the push is on. people have to get out and vote. they have to get out and vote. and we can create change. >> here and in so many states, the future of abortion in voter's hands, now more than ever. nbc news, madison, wisconsin. back locally, we have new details this morning about the deadly boat crash near angel island that we first told you about thursday night. this was the aftermath of a
power boat out of control in the middle of the bay. there was no one driving it because the boat collided with another boat launching the driver overboard. people from the sailboat pulled him from the water but he later died. we learned the man was 65-year- old michael wells from contra costa county. there is no word on whether he was wearing a life vest or who caused the crash. people and one south bay community are grateful for a neighbor who may have prevented a wildfire steps from their home and it was all caught on camera. >> you can't light fires there. >> that was the san jose homeowner confronting a man who he believes was trying to start a fire in a dry creek bed behind his home near independence high school. that area surrounded by dry brush and homes. thankfully, no fire but we saw the kindling still there yesterday. >> there are kids here and it is scary. >> i definitely think it is
scary. every now and then, i see people here. >> san jose firefighters are sharing the video with police for further investigation. >> b.a.r.t. has an ongoing issue. pigeons at one of their stations. they found a solution, and even scarier bird. meet pac-man, the new hawk that nbcbayarea is using to help with these notorious pigeons. pac-man is known for being more social than other raptors. they also tend to work people. the hawk and his handler have a simple goal. shrink the number of pigeons hanging out at the station. last month, pac-man spent three days a week at the station and the anwas dramatic. >> we started noticing a difference right away. and it has been getting lower and lower.
>> this is not pac-man's first mission. he has been hired by shopping centers, blueberry farmers, vineyard owners, all with the same goal of getting rid of those pesky pigeons. it is that time of the year. the nathan's famous hot dog eating contest. yesterday, the competitive eaters where there. joey chestnut was on crutches because of a torn achilles but he will compete through the pain. >> there is a plate of 76 hotdogs coming up here. that is how many he had eaten in 10 minutes last year, breaking his own world record. the showdown is on monday on the 4th of july in coney island, new york. speaking of the 4th of july, we are looking at the forecast. let's check out and see what is on tap. >> we have the fourth of july colors.
i know people are wondering what the fireworks. right now, the marine layer is on the coast. if you are in san francisco around the peninsula or even the interior valleys, and san jose we do have the cloud cover. it will be slow to clear for the valley but it will pretty much hang out around san francisco all day long. we will get the peaks of sunshine and limited visibility. take a look at the radar. we are going to be cool again today. cooler weather is expected. we have all the cloud cover. morning clouds and drizzle. and then some clearing inland and some clouds early sunday. look how nice it looks sunday afternoon. so today will be cloudy. heading toward monday, things will change it will take you to that in a second. currently temperatures out the door, in the 50s. pretty comfortable. not too cold. 53, san francisco. we also have an onshore flow.
