6:01 am
current system punishes the poor, who often can't afford bail. this call this system a debtor's prison. >> we shouldn't have a system where your detention is based on your income. and the allegations being made that that's the system we have. >> opponents of the bill say it is similar to the controversial new jersey plan where there have been reports of offenders committing crimes while out on free bail. the bill doesn't completely eliminate the bail system. under the proposed law judges would make the final decision in each waste. if it moves forward a vote is expected in june. jessica flores, kpix 5. on storm watch now, we are starting our day with more soggy weather. hi-def doppler is lit up in some areas. you can see the green there. roads are slick this morning and sandra osborne has more on the traffic report. but first, roberta has a check on how long you will need windshield wipers. >> we have a half inch of rain overnight and now we have low
