6:15 am
then continue to increase the taxes as they's all over the majority vote. >> this comes at a time when several local governments and school districts as well as everyone else are still trying to grapple with the proverbial penchant and healthcare funds for their workers. which are threatening to bankrupt them? so they needed to pass local taxes is critical? >> absolutely. >> and the unions as well. it is critical to keep this machine and government rolling. so what we had here, was everyone having a second agenda at play. >> absolutely. that was the politics in sacramento. >> so the return is you are not going to get any more sugar taxes around. the local government will still have the ability to use your passes on for may. >> and then comes the second part of that which is more. >> when we made that agreement, the california medical association felt outraged that
6:16 am
this was preventing local government from applying tax and the obesity problem would continue. so they now agreed to to and crafted an initiative that would be on the ballot in 2020. and then they say that free local government can raise the taxes again and add a two cent per ounce tax on sugar sweetened drinks and beverages. >> so there we go again. >> around in circles again and in two years we will have the ability to look at it again. >> i tell you these politics. everyone around us is making a lot of money. >> someone is making money here. that is for sure. >> they call it making sausage and we say is making soda. it is a sweet story. i want to thank you for joining us this morning. let's take a look out there with a bright look at your forecast. how well put, we are

6:42 am
throughout the state is state senator jerry hill. we are seeing -- seeing the threats but we are also in sacramento. i understand there is a move to change who is responsible for paying for a lot of these damages? what is going on? >> there is a big move which started in january after the fires of last year. a lot of lobbyist have been fired -- hired to change the narrative. >> in regards to what? >> in terms a responsibility. right now the utilities if they are found at all negligent like pg&e and southern california, would line to the ground if they are found responsible at sts them held liable and we htecostsethe negligent. if they've done something wrong and they're not prudent or reasonable the way that they do things, they are allowed if they act irresponsibility -- irresponsibly they cannot pass this on.
6:43 am
the shareholders have to pay. they have to pass it on to the repairs because we benefit from those wires and we take advantage of it. >> they want to change it because of the cost? >> last year we are talking in the billions. >> close to 15 billion. >> that is a record number of lost at pg&e. where they could face this. the reason being whether not the polls here were placed in the right area and were given enough protection. >> if they have trimmed the trees around like they were supposed to do appropriately. the 16 fires th they've investigated 11 of them and found that pg&e violated state law. >> so they could be on the hook here. >> and they should be. if they did not act responsibly they should have to pay.
6:44 am
they should change the standards in which liability is determined. >> to be less than prudent. -- prudent. how do you define substantial? if they have been substantially compliant, cutting most of the trees if the distances and set a four feet requirements are three feet requirements does this mean substantial? they're trying to get out of it is what they are trying to do. >> the governor has said that this is a new reality. where climate changes there and droughts. where the fact that californians are building more than we have before. we are putting that are in fire danger zones. so the question is, should the utilities have to pay for it all? >> they shouldn't. when you talk about the new norma -- new normal, and all of the other things and never ignites a fire. something has to create that spark. like a wire or a short.
6:45 am
11 of these have been caused by a problem. >> let's say we change and the utility company says okay. and we don't change it say it stays the same. given a new normal, we are going to stop putting electrical lines in these two areas. or we are going to have it cost this much. >> it will cost this much for that anyway regardless. it will cost more for this. they did a great job after the the explosion. they probably now have the best guest -- gas system for electric. that will take time and money. if they don't do that and they keep things where they are, without the proper maintenance will affect what authority happen? >> no. >> a going forward, nothing will change what they're looking for earlier.
6:46 am
what they were looking was for unity. and it is off the table now. >> they could be on the hook for billions of dollars? >> they could be. >> if on this fire's where they were responsible and acted prudently they could pass it on. if not the shareholders would be held responsible. >> it is either the ratepayers or the shareholders? and the shareholders could do my pension fund? >> it certainly could be. as you know they have not paid a dividend in last year. >> one way or another. thank you for joining us this morning. and that is politics. that is what we're going to see with what goes here. let's take a look at in the vo department. and of the weather department. things are going to cooldown as we get later into the week. we are starting out with low clouds near the shoreline. you can't tell from on top of this tower cam, but is and that pretty.
6:47 am
