a day later he said it was for a different reason. >> i want other countries to put up money. i think it's unfair we put up the money. people call me, i say let it go, but we paid the money. >> reporter: pelosi calling it a violation of the constitution demanding the white house also release the secret whistleblower complaint. trump and others are calling it a political ploy. >> if she does that, they all say that's a positive for me from the election. you can also say who needs it? it's bad for the country. >> reporter: also new tonight, the entire u.s. senate has passed a nonbinding resolution calling for the president to release the secret whistleblower complaint to congressional intelligence committees. mona kosar abdi, nbc news, washington. >> she thinks speaker pelosi will regret it. >> as republicans, republicans certainly look back on their impeachment effort of belinelli regretfully. it ended up hurting us badly in the next election. i think democrats may wish they

they made a major decision regarding rvs and trailers parked on city streets. abc7 news reporter amanda del castillo live with the details. amanda? >> reporter: larry, by next summer, those living in rvs or trailers parked on narrow mountain view streets will have to move along. we're talking about streets that measure 40 feet wide or less. mostly residential. that controversial decision came down less than an hour ago. hundreds of mountain view families have found shelter in these oversized vehicles. rvs and trailers the city says are impacting safety along narrow, mostly residential roads. >> this has been three years in the making. it's not that we woke up and said, you know, let's talk about safe parking and rv parking. >> reporter: a continuing conversation that hasn't become any less contentious. >> 24/7. >> reporter: in a 4-3 vote, council decided to restrict oversized vehicles from parking on narrow streets. changes go into effect on june 30th, 2020.
the city will also restrict those vehicles from parking on any street with a designated bike lane. many argue these rules would disrupt lives. >> most of these people will still want to stay in their communities with their family and their friends and their home and their schools. >> reporter: one man living in his rv asked not to be identified. he's new to the streets but has spent 16 years in the mountain view apartment. his long-time girlfriend died in february and he was unable to cover rent on his own. >> i tried my best, but i couldn't find a solution than this. >> reporter: the ordinance considered an all-hours ban in some areas and allow sanctioned parking in certain areas. and that provided by the city shows rv residents could park in industrial or commercial areas. those living on the streets aren't convinced this is the answer. >> i just think it means we have to really stand up as strong as we can. >> reporter: council is also looking to establish a safe parking program. they want to bring three city-owned lots online by the end of this year. those lots together would host
60 oversized vehicles. right now across mountain view, there are more than 200. in mountain view, i'm amanda del castillo, abc7 news. >> amanda, thank you. we want to hear your ideas about building a better bay area. you can share them by joining our better bay area group on facebook. >> a fremont police officer suffered a little range anxiety on the job last friday. he was chasing a felony suspect in the department's tesla when the battery indicator showed it was running low on juuse. >> i am down to 6 miles a battery. i may lose it here. if someone can maneuver to the number one spot. >> and just after that call, plice called off the chase for safety reasons. as for why the car wasn't fully charged, apparently the last person who used it forgot to put it on the charger. >> really? >> that's not good. that's an oops. >> you have to charge the car up. all right. hot weather, it's going to remain hot. >> yeah, meteorologist sandhya patel tells us how much longer
we have this heat. sandhya. >> yeah, larry and ama. just one more day and it's all over. let me show you live doppler 7 now. we are not tracking any rain. that sounds good right about now especially if you don't like the heat. winds right now out of the north gusting to 31 on mt. diablo, so winds are beginning to pickup. the that north, northeasterly wind drove temperatures up today. s.f.o. 94 degrees. 90 in downtown san francisco. 09 in oakland. napa, concord, 59 in san jose. you have to go to half moon bay to get away. it was 71 degrees. still hanging onto some of the heat from earlier today. most areas are in the 60s. 70s. we have an 84 at clear lake. and 55 degrees in half moon bay. so let's take a look at those temperatures as we head towards tomorrow morning. 10:00 a.m., it's already going to be warm across the region. mostly 70s and 80s as we head towards the lunch hour. let's just say find some shade
