it's wednesday, november 6. i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now is 6:31. happening today, dozens of spring semester classes are being taken off the schedule at san jose state. the university is facing yet another round of budget cuts. as kpix 5's cate caugiran reports, students will have fewer options and crowded classes yet again. cate. >> reporter: michelle, this also comes at a time where students are finalizing their plans for the spring term and now students and faculty here at san jose state university, their future is up in the air. a balancing act. department heads were told last week, slashing programs to keep the school afloat. sources tell kpix 5, those department leaders are planning to meet at 10:30 today to talk about another round of budget cuts to the tune of $16 million. for students an faculty, this will mean increased class sizes, classes dropped and potential layoffs. nome some professors may have
6:33 am
to teach classes outside their expertise. this is a shock to students and faculty because last year california voters approved proposition 30, promising relief from budget cuts felony like these. a university spokesman tells the "san jose mercury news" this is about cutting down the school's $32 million deficit and last month it was clear the school's academic programs were on track to overspend by $3.8 million. so university leaders are saying this is not a midyear cut. they are just saying they are asking the departments to operate within the budget. but if we're talking less money and fewer classes, michelle, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck -- live in san jose, back to you. >> any word on how many classes will be cut? >> reporter: well, michelle, university leaders say they are not sure about how many classes or programs are going to be cut but as we mentioned earlier, they are planning to meet again today so hopefully we'll have more information after today's

6:35 am
crashes in both directions of 101. so first they just issued a traffic alert northbound 101 in redwood city approaching woodside road. there's an overturned car in the two left lanes. traffic is quickly building behind it. and then in the opposite direction, southbound 101 this is in menlo park. a motorcycle accident. three left lanes are blocked. and as you can see, these delays are just beginning. also police activity there was a shooting in the south beach neighborhood of san francisco. bryant street is closed for the investigation between 3rd and 4th. we'll have more "kcbs traffic" coming up. back to you guys. a teenager is arrested for allegedly setting a man on fire on an ac transit bus in oakland. 18-year-old sasha fleischman was sleeping on the bus monday night when he woke up to find his clothes in flames. he is now being treated for second- and third-degree burns on his legs. police went to oakland high school and took a 16-year-old suspect into custody there. they used surveillance images from the bus and talked to witnesses to catch the suspect. our brian webb tried to get answers from that teenager. >> reporter: can you tell us
6:36 am
why you did it, sir? tell us, why would you do something like that? >> the suspect didn't have anything to say. fleischman is listed in stable condition. the sonoma county district attorney met with a group of people demanding murder charges against the deputy who shot and killed andy lopez. he is the 13-year-old boy whose gun he was carrying turned out to be a toy. >> it was like a knife to the heart at first, and then i found out what truly happened and it seemed like it was worse. >> protestors marched yesterday from the board of supervisors meeting to the d.a.'s office. fairfield police shot and killed a man who had just stabbed his girlfriend more than 30 times. officers responded to a call at an apartment complex on pennsylvania avenue and found the woman. they say the suspect charged at them with a knife so they shot and killed him. the woman is in critical condition.
6:37 am
a new jersey shopping mall is the scene of a shooting monday night. it's open for business again today. the garden state plaza in paramus was closed yesterday as investigators gathered evidence and crews cleaned up the scene. no victims were killed or hurt during the shooting. the gunman was later found dead in the mall's basement. he apparently killed himself. san francisco's waterfront won't be home to a luxury waterfront condominium project. propositions b and c were rejected by more than 60% of the voters yesterday. the so-called 8 washington project was approved by the board of supervisors last year but critics forced that issue to a vote. >> this was a vindicating victory for folks who believe that we shouldn't have a wall at the waterfront. >> the waterfront alliance which opposed the project is now turning its attention to a planned basketball arena. the group wants san francisco leaders to reassess the golden state warriors' proposal of an arena on the bay. folks on both sides of the
6:38 am
gun control debate have been keeping a very watchful eye on the city of sunnyvale. >> right. voters in the low crime city approved stricter controls and for more, here's political analyst melissa griffin-caen. >> hey there. >> reporter: good morning. it passed overwhelmingly, 66% of sunnyvale voters sweeping gun control measure. the nra has predictably said it is going to challenge these measures in court. here's how it would work. the nra would have to go to a court either state or federal and say, stop the law from taking effect. we realize it's passed, but if it goes into effect, then it will cause irreparable harm to it the citizens of sunnyvale and maybe elsewhere. and then a judge at that point would have to determine whether to stop the law while it's being litigated. so that's step one. my point is, it's just passed in the city of sunnyvale but it's going to be tied up for weeks until they determine whether to put it on hold or whether to allow it to go forward while more substantive legal debate takes place. if you live in sunnyvale, don't go tossing your massive
6:39 am
ammunition storage spaces just yet. >> okay. [ laughter ] >> the city of stockton one of the biggest cities to go bankrupt and they went out and asked the voting public, can you raise the sales tax? how did that work out? >> reporter: the voters actually endorsed it although it was a very low voter turnout. it was something around 20% of the folks in stockton came out. they raised it from 8.25% to 9% sales tax. remember, what's interesting about stockton is that it's not like public pensions or something like that caused the bankruptcy. what caused it was severe fiscal mismanagement. they built a new city hall, other real estate ventures that were just completely ill advised and horrible ideas and they blew up in the face of city leaders. so what voters were asked to do was really unfortunate. they say if you want to have fire and police protection, we are going to have you to pay more and put it into the hands of the people who got us into mess in the first place. >> in colorado some people wanted to secede. >> your home state. >> my home state.
6:40 am
it's not happening. >> reporter: 11 counties in colorado voted on whether they should secede and form north colorado. we are talking about gun control measures? one of the things that makes them want to secede is the fact that the democratic-controlled state legislature has passed serious gun control in colorado. so 11 counties voted. 5 counties voted no, 6 counties voted yes. it would take a vote of the colorado legislature and u.s. congress in order for the secession. so it's unlikely but mostly these folks were just sending a message saying we feel neglected by the democrats in our state capital and sounds like they were heard loud and clear. >> and quickly voters in texas say bye-bye astrodome? >> they are selling off pieces of candlestick? you're going to be able to buy pieces of the astrodome. they didn't get the money needed to survive and that's going to be razed so if you want something go to texas. >> melissa, thank you.
6:41 am
you can find more of melissa's segments on the website was up and running on time but it's still working out the kinks. now congress wants to know what cuts were made in order to meet the launch deadline. >> and the market opened up on this wednesday. a few minutes ago. take a look at the early numbers. we are out of the gates in a very green and good way. we'll crunch the number with jason brooks after the break. ,,
