at six here on abc 7, who live and wherever you stream. what is the state doing about it? where is our money going? we are left tonight, digging into those questions. reporter: sources tell us that several state departments art meeting with lawmakers to discuss alternative contracts that could save us more than $300 million. these meetings come as the state is taking heat from legislators for failing to release a report detailing any assessment of the labs is. when california launched its first state-funded covid testing lab, it came with a big testing lab. this is a cliff the tweeted out. wanted 25 million dollars valencia branch lab. he said it will double the
testing capacity, guaranteeing before-48 testing results and cut the cost from $150 to $30. did all of that happened? >> no. reporter: he is an attorney, a nonpartisan watchdog group. not only were they not delivered but the state renewed the billion dollar contract despite health officials warning that they could lose their license. >> there are questions raised about previous issues with the contract. reporter: they conducted an investigation late last year that found significant deficiencies in the lab including inconclusive test results. last month, scott woke sent health and human services this letter saying they should release a report promised seven months ago, detailing the investigation into their deficiencies. delaying the public release of
the report with little to no explanation is unacceptable. they sent a second letter weeks later to help the auto renewal of the contract up to $1.7 billion. his office said no response. >> surprised that the state did not take a more lessons learned approach in possibly get out the deal. reporter: she is the health campaigns director for the public interest research group. a coalition that specializes in health care solutions. when it comes to evaluating contracts, what should be the priority? >> turnaround times are as promised. consumer tests and volume tests are matched. reporter: neither of those were fully met in the contract. there lab was expected to reach the capacity of processing 150,000 tests per day. public records obtained by the i team shows they never exceeded
processing 40,000 tests per day with one of the slowest turnaround times compared to its competitors. >> i would be concerned about costs. this is not free. reporter: according to state data, the pcr covid test costs around $55, not three dollars promised. public records shape -- $30. only half of those were processed in one day whereas summer bio is charging $10 per pcr test with an average of 94% of samples processed over the past year. >> why does it cost us 50? especially if you have other people in the market that are doing this in the $10 range. reporter: we brought this example to the state asking if they were considering companies demonstrating cost-efficient results but yet to get a straight answer. the sounds from the state comes as they cashed in on impressive third order. we looked into their financial record that shows they generated
$560 million more in the first half of this year from just operating activities compared to last year. it was slightly more than its competitor and on par with quest. i want to add. we have repeatedly watched out -- reached out for further comment on this but have yet to hear back. dan: thank you.ou ama: a couple more headlines. the covid pill dramatically cutt hospitalization and death rates by 90%. it will seek authorization from the fda. 11 states led by missouri filed a lawsuit against the audit administration for the vaccine mandate against private businesses. similar challenges are made by 15 other states. in her and co., 5-11 age kids can will their sleeves for a vaccine. -- in marin county.

on on whether this is a good thing. we take a look at the pros and cons for both sides. reporter: sunday at 2 a.m., we will will back our clock's as daylight savings times and. it is a highly contested topic we ask five people their thoughts. >> i don't like it. i feel like it gets dark too early and i miss the sunshine when i go home from work. >> i do. >> i do not like it. >> i get that extra hour of sleeping. reporter: our survey is not the end of the debate but many people agree. the department of transportation overseas it and supports it. it saves energy and results in fewer traffic fatalities. many school officials are for your >> kids have to go to school in the dark and the schools would have to change their time schedules and that messes up parents work schedule. it messes up the school starting time.
it is just not good overall. reporter: without it, klotz would stay the same but when the sun rises and set would change. under our current system, it rises at 7 a.m. on january 1 and at 5:00 on july 1. if change, it would be dark until 8 a.m. and sunrise would be at four: 41. despite that reality, some believe that not having a time change is better for our bodies. wexler me set our clock to a time that doesn't align with that so :00, we get misalignment. it leads to the immediate effect of not feeling very good after our time changes but also to long-term health effects like increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke and others. >> we voted on this in 2018. we voted to get rid of it but that has been held up by the federal government. they still need to decide if 34-door falling back time is the one we set our watches too.
there is no sense of time as to when that will happen. ama: oh, the debate. dan: every year. i go both ways on this. part of me, i love it when it is light longer. i also kind of like it cozy in the wintertime when it is darker. i don't mind it. i know people want to get rid of it but to me, it marks a seasonal change. ama: i like it when the holiday lights are out. you don't want it to be 8:00 and you look at holiday lights. spencer: on the other hand, it seems dreary when it gets that dark at the afternoon. i'm ok with the change. i am not misaligned. some people would say that i am. dan: working our hours, doesn't matter what type of sun is out. spencer: it's dark when you get off anyhow.
