12:03 pm
report, which was released just very recently. this as of this week, i believe was later implicated the two individuals that were arrested just two days ago. the killing happened inside a small scene as a church where trigueros hernandez was the leader. investigators are asking anyone with information about this case or similar incidents involving the suspects. contact the police. governor gavin newsom wants to use some of the state's budget surplus to help californians deal with inflation could mean hundreds of dollars in refunds and other benefits for some ktvu amanda quintana explains what that plan could include and why some believe it may only lead to higher prices in the long run. amanda governor newsom's budget briefing this morning, he announced the states operating surplus is $97.5 billion, he says no other state in history has had a surplus that large he wants to dedicate $18.1 billion of that to an inflation relief plan all about getting some of the states surplus back into californians pockets. the unfortunate thing is this is
12:04 pm
california you know, and everything is a lot more expensive compared to those other states where everything is a lot less expensive, is taking its toll on californians and grocery stores, electricity and water bills and especially at the gas pump. yeah governor gavin newsom wants to help dedicating $11.5 billion of his inflation relief plan to sending $400 payments to car owners. but some don't think that's enough like that. he's trying to help us out. but i heard it was going to be 400 or a couple of $100. what is that going to do for me ? maybe help me for a week or two, and then i go back to spending $150. so they should do something more than that. the governor's plan also has 2.7 billion going towards emergency rent assistance and 1.4 billion would help people with past due utility bills. 933 million would address the stress on hospital

and nursing home staff giving out $1500 payments to those who cared for the sickest patients during the covid 19 pandemic. we're looking to provide stipends because we're losing staff. it's a real recruitment challenge, and that would be made worse if we don't focus on retention. the governor is also proposing 750 million for free public transit and other measures to pause the diesel sales tax for a year. make health insurance more affordable and wave childcare fees for low income families. those who oppose the plan, want to see money used for other things. and say the aid should only go to those in the greatest need if we're going to give money back to people, it should not be based on who owns a car. the embarcadero could be flooded the money bark. tunnels could be flooded up and down the state. we have major infrastructure needs. others suggest cutting the gas tax. instead of giving drivers a refund. but economics professor jim wilcox says that's
12:06 pm
a bad idea. one virtue of giving payments for people who have cars is it's not directly tied to the price of gasoline, and we want the high price of gasoline to actually discourage people from using as much gasoline. there are other proposals in the legislature that aim to distribute this money differently of all the confidence in the world will be able to square those modest differences and we'll come around to a number. in a strategy that's in the best interests of california's. my interest is to get the money out as quickly as possible. people are feeling deep stress deep anxiety. in addition to this, the state's minimum wage will raise to 15 50. that will happen on january 1st now that is required when inflation goes over 7% live in the newsroom. amanda quintana ktvu, fox two news. amanda thank you. elon musk says he wants to clear out thousands of fake twitter
