protects renters. >> reporter: what's going to happen is the city council in city hall behind me is going to decide whether to approve new fines for landlords within the city limits. this is to encourage those property owners to follow the law when it comes to how they treat their tenants. for example, landlords have to require a legitimate reason for not renewing a tenant's lease. the city is considering a fine of $500 for landlords who don't follow that so-called just cause eviction rule. some landlords say the new fines create a financial burden on them and believe the city should be focusing on the affordability crisis, not them. the san francisco supervisors rules committee, they approved new protections for currently, landlords in sf can evict tenants without cause unless they're living in a building more than 40 years old. the law that needs full board approval would extend no cause eviction protection to renters
in any building regardless of the building's age from the moment they sign the lease. >> reflects the moment we're in. which is a true affordability crisis. it's not about supply. it's not about what webuild, when we build it. it's about can working class people stay here in san francisco and be able to survive. this is a step in that direction. >> reporter: the san francisco apartment association says that proposal would add more red tape and make it more difficult for building owners to handle problem tenants. reporting in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." president trump in london attending a nato summit. trump expected to renew demands that european allies in canada step up defense spending. now his trip comes as the impeachment inquiry in washington moves forward. tracie potts live on capitol hill. the president blaming democrats for scheduling a hearing while he's overseas.
>> right, scott. he's pointing fingers and also suggesting on twitter that maybe it's time for the u.s. supreme court to step in, slow down or stop impeachment from going forward. lawmakers vote tonight on whether to approve the report summarizing the impeachment inquiry so far. >> it's a hoax. the impeachment thing is a hoax. >> republicans have already written a 123-page rebuttal dpee fe defending the p. >> this republican report is absolutely ridiculous. >> tomorrow's judiciary hearing will focus on whether the law supports articles of impeachment against president trump for requesting a political biden investigation, from ukraine while withholding aid. one republican insists, without proof, that ukraine interfered in the clear to me that ukraine did meddle in t u.s
u helping spread that russian propaganda in an effort to defend the president. >> the president is watching nato leaders today. his focus, making them pay their fair share of defense spending. >> we've increased the numbers that other countries are paying by $130 billion. it was going down for close to 20 years, if you look at it. like a roller coaster down. that was going on for a long time. we wouldn't have had a nato if it kept going that way. >> he's had several one-on-one meetings with heads of state today. tracie potts, nbc washington. a deadly house fire in east oakland happened yesterday on east 48th avenue. the man who died was 86 years old and confined to a wheelchair. firefighters managed to rescue his wife and the family dog. the woman suffered smoke inhalation. they have not given us an exact cause. but firefighters say ac5:05.

ey up. >> i don't think that we should have to pay to drive on the freeway that we've already paid for with our taxes. >> expensive enough with the express lanes. i mean, with the fast lanes and all that. no, i don't think so. >> when the traffic stops, the diamond lanes stop as well. they really don't work. >> reporter: all right. here's the stretch of 880 we're talking about. it's 25 miles of 880 southbound between heg en berger road to dixon landing. 20 miles in the northbound direction between dixon landing to lewelling boulevard. >> tonight is the first oor people to weigh in before the metropolitan transportation commission financing authority which will hold a public hearing in two weeks and then a vote to
public meeting, check out my twitter feed and facebook page for a link to a five-minute virtual open house. it has a pretty good amount of information. here's what's inform consideration. they want to convert the hov lanes, the carpool lanes to express lanes in the summer of 2020. that is in part because 20% of hov lane users don't pay. they're carpool cheap. the drivers would be required to have fastrak transponders for anybody who wants to use the express lanes. the toll would be dynamic pricing starting at 50 cents per trip going up from there depending on congestion. january. they will consider making changes to the existing express la ocounty. you can find details in my twitter feed and facebook page as well. that s some folks who drive clean air vehicles pay a little more and increasing the minimum toll.
