watching for our viewers. that was flight 1118 that did make the safe landing after a bird strike. any word on how many people were on board? >> i don't have that information. at this time. >> okay. and so with a bird strike, i assume that it was one engine that was out but these planes can usually still fly without one engine; correct? >> correct. it is an md80, a two engine aircraft. the number one is the one that sustained the bird strike and we will be working with the airline to investigate the situation and the airline will be working closely with its customers to get them to their destination as efficiently as possible today. >> obviously the important thing was no one was hurt. one more quick question. i know bird strikes happen. is this kind of a common problem or is this rather unusual. >> bird strikes are a situation that all airports across the u.s. deal with. and certainly we have a very aggressive program in
mitigating all means of wildlife strikes on our airport. we work with the usda on our airfield. we have a number of tactics in order to reduce the number of wildlife strikes on our airport. this is a time of year where we see a large numbers of birds in the area. they're migrating and finding our open fields, like other airports in the country are a great place to stop while they're continuing for their winter migration. but again, we are stepping up our efforts, especially this time of year as a result of that situation. >> all right. rose mary barnes, spokesperson, tells us that a plane on american flight had to make an emergency landing after a bird strike. everyone's okay. we'll continue to follow the story and bring you more information. thank you for your time. >> time now 7:05. right now, santa clara county

board member told me here in west oakland. commuters glad the trains are running and frustrated the contract has not been ratified by all sides, including b.a.r.t. management. it was ratified by both sides but there was language about paid family leave that they say they didn't agree to. a glitch if you will. the issue resolves around how much paid family leave they are to receive under the contract. reportedly the contract would have given the workers 6 weeks, and prior language was to use sick leave and vacation time first. we spoke with the unions, in any case as we should say b.a.r.t. board members say they are investigating how this happened. the union says they are not budging and this was clearly not a clerical error since both sides had copies of the agreement to begin with. >> they voted on what was presented bit district. the district had the same practice that we had.

has two glaring differences from the president's offer. it would allow new enrollees in those plans that don't meet obama care standards and it does not require insurance companies to inform consumers about potentially better plans being offered in the federal and state marketplaces. that has president obama threatening to veto the bill. some republicans say president obama ignoring the law for the next year and encouraging insurance companies to do the same one republican said if a law is bad, we'd change the law. we don't ignore it. some insurance companies say they won't be able to extend current policies because it's too much change with only six weeks to go before the new year. bay area congresswoman nancy pelosi spoke just a few moments ago and she said the republican plan is poisonous for the health of americans. i'll watch the house floor live and have her reactions and
