this by making false statements misleading doctors and patients about the risk of opioids and changing the way the broader public viewed or use walgreens and other companies involved in the lawsuit would not comment. the city attorney's office filed the litigation in 2018 and included companies like oxycontin manufacturer purdue pharma. purdue went bankrupt in 2020 and paid out billions in settlements for its role in the opioid epidemic. on wednesday, two announced that another defendant, endo pharmaceuticals , will settle its case with the city for $10 million. there is a line you can draw from the conduct of legal, uh companies, manufacturers, distributors and pharmacies. to the illegal markets that you see today. keith humphreys is a professor at stanford, who has been studying the opioid crisis. he says regulators dropped the ball and let the drug companies run wild. they did, um dodge through . it's not really loopholes but

5:10 pm
became optional. it's got some passengers breathing easier. yes, i'm happy about that. because i don't like the way it makes me feel like because i have all these piercings. just make it work. i can't breathe decision comes after a federal ruling struck down a national mask mandate, leading local transit agencies scrambling to modify their own policies. we wanted to make sure that the agency's overall sort of on the same page and so that passengers wouldn't be confused or disappointed. whatever so we were trying to communicate with each other. for most of the day, there was still confusion but one by one agencies like sf mta , a c transit and caltrain all decided to recommend masks but not require them. the state, which could have kept a mandate in place today announced their masking requirement is terminated, effective immediately. union leaders say they're glad over 90% of our assaults on drivers over the past year and a half where because of the mask mandate and arguing with customers about
5:11 pm
putting a mask on so it relieves a lot of that stress that the driver might have, ta says they did not ask employees to be enforcers of the mask policy. still for this new graduating class of drivers, the change is welcome. i think for the passengers, it's going to be real good. create less conflict . a lot of them don't have a mass and sometimes get upset about it. um for me myself. i'm probably gonna wear my mask just for my own safety and he's not alone. many passengers say they will continue to cover up. at least for now. rather wear the mask until the epidemic is completely gone, because if we don't know if it could start back up again, and it's better to say, be safe than sorry. and within the last few minutes, we just got word that bart is going mask optional as well, though they say they continue to strongly recommend that riders wear them, julie yeah. so many changes coming so quickly.
5:12 pm

5:16 pm
specific reasons for requesting the trade, but acknowledged he has informed the team of his desire to leave. samuel is entering the final year of his rookie contract. he joined two of the league's other top receivers and skipping any on field offseason programs until he signed a contract extension. on the assignment over the oakland a's home opener seems to have faded in a hurry. one day later, the team had its worst attendance at the coliseum in nearly 40 years, 3748. that is the lowest number since june of 1984, excluding, of course, pandemic error games with zero fans in the stands. last night was only the second home game of the season. despite the low fan attendance, the one last night it put them in a tie for the best record in the american league. the florida senate passed a bill today that would address independent special districts that effectively allow walt disney world to self govern itself. so what would happen if local authorities take over the district? fox news? valerie boy takes a look. right now. state
5:17 pm
lawmakers are in a special session debating the future of reading creek. it's located here in dizzy property, political analysts say there's a 50% chance of the private government here on disney property could be eliminated. and if that happens , orange and osceola counties would have to take over. why is it fair? that one company gets these special privileges, but the others don't. it's a discussion worth having exactly what representative randy fine did today during the special session. the reedy creek improvement district, which is a private government run by disney was created back in 1967 to help develop disney and bring tourism to central florida. but fine wants lawmakers to consider revamping what disney can and cannot do the ability to go and seize your property without your permission, the right to build a nuclear power plant, which is one of the things they have fine says the local authorities would take over running reedy creek, which has around 400 employees. so what would it cost taxpayers ? we asked the orange county tax collector we have about 438,000
5:18 pm
parcels here in orange county. and so if you divide that out, it's probably $250 a year. you'd literally get no revenue right again because it's an independent taxing district. when that's dissolved. that just goes away. but representative fine, disagrees. this wouldn't have to cost taxpayers anything. the revenues that are currently collected for the reedy creek improvement district could then be collected by the counties as well out to the osceola county tax collector and property appraiser who say they need more time to come up with the numbers. orange county tax collector scott read off, agrees something like this probably needs, you know, a bit more. um you know, studying into before you do something like that science is everyone will have more time to research. even if the bill is approved. nothing happens overnight. nothing happens until after session next year. and again, that was valerie boy reporting. of course, this all started after the ceo of disney spoke out against the parental rights and

we've got a nice little forecast for you again. more rain in the forecast. this weather system has a little bit of game two. it's going to drop, perhaps an inch and a half, maybe two inches of rain in the north bay, santa cruz mountains, an inch and a half inch and three quarters, most of us a quarter to a half inch, but that's great for late season storms like this, this one's a good one. it's got snow levels down about 5800. ft will be seeing, um, maybe two. maybe three ft of snow up there and some of the areas, especially central sierra nevada. so good looking storm. it's getting here now. so let's take a peek at how this thing plays out. the thursday forecast is going to be overnight rain tonight. into thursday morning. we could see showers heavy at times, especially in the early morning hours. thunderstorms possible is that powerful cold air gets in here and then the afternoon it's going to clear up pretty quick, so this is mainly an overnight tonight thing into tomorrow morning early and then clearing tomorrow afternoon. these are some of the rainfall
5:21 pm
accumulations and where they lie out and you can see it's pretty equal opportunity from the north bay to the south bay. rainfall will have an impact, mainly on the morning. the late night commute early morning commute. that's what most folks will notice it. there's the weather system. it's a for this time of year. like i've said last couple of days. it's a really nice looking weather system and, quite frankly, on track to be not the we've had some really strong stories remember early in the season? but we haven't had that many really poppy storms. it's going to throw some wind at us a winter storm warning that stays in effective friday morning and significant amounts of rain. it's a good one. it's under scale of 1 to 10 for this time of year. give it an eight for this time of year. not for january or something like that. so there are the rainfall accumulation possibilities. some snow in the mountains. i think two ft. for sure. i think three ft real possibility. and as you look at the sierra nevada that winter storm warning goes into effect in the next few hours, and it stays in effect through the cr through friday morning
5:22 pm
early, and so that's going to have a big impact on folks driving around up there and again. not expected this time of year. for many, many folks go up there think, okay, it's spring weather. i'm going to get out and do some hiking. this is going to drop enough snow down low enough that you're not going to be doing a lot of a lot of warm, hiking or dry hiking anyway, especially i was just saying last through friday, so it starts up there tonight hangs on all day thursday, pretty much into friday and continues on into the friday afternoon. our so good looking weather system right now you can see where it is. it's just starting to show up. those are the current rainfall prediction areas and you can see right here where it is north bay. so when i come back, we'll get it all timed out for you will look at it, and that's not the model. that's the radar. rain is showing up down the north bay. i'll see you back here with the rest of the forecast. killdeer. i feel like there's some kind of drugs in me or something, and i don't know what's happening. weed and a wedding. it's a bizarre tale.
