homeland security officials concerned that that everyone in the u.s. will have their real i.d.s by the october 2020 deadline. only about 35% of i.d.s in circulation in the u.s. are real i.d.s. some states have not even begun even issuing the ident updated identification. legislative relief maybe requested from congress to assist in this process. it is 5:06. a heated battle erupts over a bold plan to ease the bay area heart housing crisis. >> still ahead, in a special "project home", the arguments behind the ballot measure that has divided affordable housing activists. the sunshine continues across the bay area with mild to warm temperatures. i have been looking at those longer weather models. i will let you know if steyer: wall street banks took advantage of millions of americans during the recession. so, my wife kat and i took action. we started a non-profit community bank with a simple theory- give people a fair deal and real economic power. invest in the community. in businesses owned by women and people of color. in affordable housing. the difference between words and actions matters. that's a lesson politicians
it is an example of the politics of housing and why it is so difficult to get anything done. we're looking ahead to campaign 2020 and examining housing decisions voters will soon have to make. susie steimle and wilson walker take a closer look at san francisco's proposition "e". >> reporter: how about a proposition "e"? >> absolutely yes. >> but is notable
>>if it passes, prop e wi transform the way this city builds. going forward, it will tie the amount of office space companies can build to how well the city does it in its affordable housing full. new office buildings won't be. >> it we build affordable faster, or we build -- >> reporter: john is the director of policy for an affordable housing affordable developer and sponsor of prop "e". he is optimistic that this will bring balance back to the this city. >> if we don't change the paradigm, we will continue on the exact same track we have been on. >> reporter: the big problem is critics and san francisco never meets its affordable housing goals. in the past decade, san francisco came up short, building only 35% of the affordable housing it was required to. if this trend continues, and prop "e" passes, the city could end up having 10.6 million fewer square feet of office space in 20 years. the city's economist determined this will have a negative
financial impact leading to fewer jobs, higher office runs, reduced income, and employment, plus -- >> prop "e" is going to take away one of the main funding sources that we have to build new affordable housing, which is the fees that office developers pay. >> let's office space means less city revenue, and less money that would go toward building affordable housing, but supporters say the status quo simply can't continue. >> until we have this unfortunate carrot and stick, folks are not going to -- and some will say, yes, they will, but i will point to history and say, no, they haven't. >> this may sound like a good idea, unintended consequences, this is going to significantly reduce the number of affordable housing that we cabu it is to drive office with even further up. >> for voters, it comes down to
who you trust and whether you're an optimist or a realist. and it can be confusing, especially because critics will argue that prop "e" actually does the opposite of what it advertises. >> you enough, as divided as they maybe a their position, there is one thing the two sides might well agree on, prop "e" is a symptom of a much larger problem. >> i mean, this is definitely not something where we have people that are totally for housing and totally against it. literally every single person is both for affordable housing. >> that is the reality. >> reporter: while prop "e" targets office space, the root of the problem is still a lack of housing and the inability to create a problem not limited to san francisco. >> i don't hope that the rest of the counties would look at something similar. >> absolutely. it is a regional issue. and that is one of the things one of the complaints about this particular ballot measure, is that it just pushes the food around on the plate., you know? it pushes the problem around. >> reporter: and there in lies the complexity of achieving a jobs housing balance. if it does not respect city limits and county lines, the
result is local ballot measures all over the region, tinkering with that much larger problem. >> it is not a one dimensional solution. because it is not a one- dimensional problem. and so, you see different ballot measures trying to take bites kind of at the apple, if you will. so the region's housing challenge continues to be fought at the local level, county, city, sometimes block to block.. people are make willing to make the perfect out of there. people are like, oh, i want housing. but i wanted to be a certain way. and if it can't be that way, and the only option is no housing, that's fine with me. that is an anti-housing position. >> i would look straight at the top, if i could wave a magic wand to start at the federal level. >> that was wilson walker and susie steimle reported. keep setting your stories to email@example.com. you can see all of our original reporting on our website.
