violent felonies and those who have registered as a offender. but as for the others also says their records too often turn into a lifelong sentence of limited access to employment, housing, education, and the ability to live a full normal life and provide for their families. but the bill does face a position. it goes too far. republistate senator brian jones of san diego says he supports second chances, but says this legislation page too much of a broad brush or telling the criminals. >> just wait it out. you can do what you want, you know, commit the crimes do the time. and then eventually in a short period of time, it just automatically going to fall off and your record is clean and several democrats agreed also that this just goes too far, also voted no on the bill. >> and the governor still has a little over a week to decide whether he will si n this bill into law or veto it. reporting here outside the california state capitol wallace kron. 4 news 6.20, right now. but we

on the clock. and when it comes to pox vaccine, second shots have been postponed. now to prioritize the first ones. >> calls went out last month to let people know that their 28 days between doses would be even longer with kron four's rob nesbitt to explain. >> i'm hearing more and more about how people are finding ways to get their second monkeypox vaccine shot. so i wanted to hear from an infectious disease expert, the what the science says about having a longer wait time between doses. it took 6 hours of waiting before jose luis gone was able to get his first shot of the monkeypox vaccine. he was able to make an appointment with his partner to get his second shot in sacramento. a month later, it took less time for us to drive all the way from so san francisco to sacramento got our toes and then come back. but it took for me to get my first dose. he says the vaccine clinic he went to in the capital city, received a surplus from the state allowing for second shots getting it was a priority because he seen the pictures of severe cases and heard
firsthand accounts of the pain. i've been really changing. my behavior is pretty significantly in order to minimize my risk. but i want to be able to go ahead and live life as normal. second shots have been postponed in most places per the cdc's recommendation. i went to infectious disease expert at ucsf doctor monica gandhi to get her thoughts on people finding loopholes in the system mean it's understandable that people are feeling anxious and they want to second shot. i would say, however, that there is a reason the way the doctor says aside from allowing first shots to get into more arms waiting between doses is also good for the immune system. it's really not a bad idea for the immune system to have a longer time between doses, at least 8 to 12 weeks. she says that massive amounts of vaccines are supposed to be coming from the federal government in october. we should be enough supply to allow for second doses. until then, she says the u.s. public health system needs to find a way to improve the public. in the u.s. has some work to do to increase the trust in public health. doctor gandhi
