california governor gavin newsom looking to distinguish himself from his predecessor in his state of the state address in sacramento, outlining a different approach to solving some of the state's most pressing image issues from immigration, housing in homelessness, to high-speed rail and state water projects, the governor talking on several different topics. >> the governor laying out some details today, saying he will scale that high-speed rail and form a task force on homelessness. christina rendon was in sacramento for the speech today, and she has more on the governor's new approaches to key issues facing california. >> reporter: please stand for governor gavin newsom. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> reporter: in his first state of the state address, governor gavin newsom with a no time getting his priorities. >> this border security is nothing more than a manufactured crisis, and california will not be part of this political theater. >> reporter: he quickly moved to high-speed rail, announcing he is scaling back the project to run between merced and
4:02 pm
bakersfield. the current plan, he says, would take too long and cost too much. >> i know, i know some critics are going to say that is a train to nowhere, but i think that is wrong, and i think that is offensive. >> reporter: on water issues, newsom is downsizing the dental plan tunnel products from two tunnel to one that is clean drinking water is a priority . he reiterated his commitment to addressing the housing and homelessness crisis. >> do we want to california for all? we have to build housing for all. >> we have so much work to do in this area, but he's articulate how >> we got to put a roof over everyone's head to make sure we are bringing our californians home. >> he has a plan that bring some art homelessness, protect our renters, and increases our supply come exactly what we need. >> reporter:'s other issues include education and caring for the aging population. maria shriver will lead a task force on leading research on
4:03 pm
alzheimer's disease. >> so it is nice to see how that is manifesting on a statewide plan. >> reporter: republican say they are willing to come to the table on many issues, excited about what they heard. >> in looking at the fiscal impacts of their daughters, i think that was very responsible, and like i said i am pleasantly surprised, very, very responsible in some of the things he's brought forth. >> usually they are hard decisions ahead, and he said he will pretend to have all the answers, but he says we must face these issues honestly. at the state capital, christina rendon, ktvu fox 2 news. >> the governor put a lot on the table with that speech . for more on all of this, we are joined by our political analyst. let's start with one of the
4:04 pm
issues a lot of folks are talking about. today, governor newsom say wants to back away from the controversial high-speed rail project. he said it's going to take too long, cost too much money. he's really veering off course from his predecessor here. what is the rationale behind this decision? >> you are looking at something with high-speed rail that has a cost attached to it of $77 billion to make this thing work throughout the state, and i think the governor took the decision that there is no way this thing is going to be completed in the new future, and he has other things you want to spend money on. >> he broke from jerry brown, and only on high-speed rail, but understood water projects. he surprised at all by sort of him taking this stance this early? >> i think there is some folks out there that say hey, he might've waited a little while longer to allow the jerry brown legacy to cement, but on the other hand i think he signaled in the campaign that both of these projects were on the front burner in terms of his evaluation, and he has taken action on that. >> and he is also zeroing in in many ways. i know he touched on a lot of
4:05 pm
issues. he was all over the board in some sense, but he's really put a spotlight on the issue of homelessness and affordability here taken california, talking about forming a state commission to deal with the homeless crisis and allocating $5 million for shelters and navigation centers. how do you think is going to differ from his predecessor in how he approaches this issue? >> well, this is somebody that was a big city -- so was jerry brown in oakland, but he dealt with homelessness. i think he thinks he's on the right track around some solutions, but he also asked that the best minds come together and try to collectively come up with answers. homelessness, anyway you slice it, it's a very, very complex issue, and money does not solve the necessary. >> he's even admitted it. he did though, brian, spent a lot of time talking to president trump, talking about the policies of the current administration. you think he spent too much time talking about things on the national state as opposed to focusing on california issues? >> i don't know if too much time would be the phrase, but
4:06 pm
enough time so that we recognize that this is going to be on ongoing thing between gavin newsom and price president, and the question is when you have a deeply blue state like california, other than just kind of stating the obvious for a lot of people in california, the question is what are you trying to accomplish? and i always deconstruct his speeches and say, what is the point? >> i want to bring up a tweet from the california gop because they quickly went after gavin newsom on that, saying instead of just blindly opposing approaches in your first california state of the state, governor gavin newsom's the focus of your california issues such as housing, water transportation costs, and dmv. make this about californians, not petty partisan politics. as we know, there are a lot of speculation that gavin newsom has you know, has hopes, aspirations beyond california,
4:07 pm
so i don't really know that he is going to shift. >> well, no. i've been saying for the longest time that you know, in the world of checking boxes up the ladder, he's got another box to check, and this gives them a great platform as governor of california to continue talking about washington, d.c. the fairness of the argument, however, is that there are 50 governors in california, and he is one of those, and -- but at the same time, he is somebody that i think he's going to use this as a platform. >> and inherent risk in focusing too much on president trump. >> well, in a sense. california, again, is deeply blue. you are throwing sort of jump in the water heater people in california do not like donald trump or the republicans in washington, d.c., so that is easy, but what is going to be difficult is governing a state of 40 million people and actually making something happen, and you know, who am i to say anything in this regard, but you know, concentration ought to be on governing for
4:08 pm
california. >> yes, that seems like most people here are going to be focused on is the result you get for us here in california and our constituents. brian, always a pleasure to have you on. to watch governor gavin newsom's whole state of the state address, you can find it on our webpage, we are going to pop out, give you a live look i cloudy skies and more rain, a lot more rain is headed in our direction. it will be upon us here in a matter of just hours. mark tamayo standing by and tracking this latest system. how was the looking, mark? >> this will be a powerful system, especially for the wednesday morning commute. extremely challenging here in the bay area. we still have some lingering snowfall in some of the bay area hills. this system, a much warmer one, with what we call an atmospheric river link out to the hawaiian island chain. we're talking that excessive rainfall totals, a big rain here, 127 inches. winds to be 40 to 60 miles an hour, and this will be a winter storm warning in the sierra. already, the national weather

>> this stage is emblematic of slavery, what went on during the civil war, and we cannot escape that history, but what we do need to do is put into a museum, maybe keep the old dixie school, have a plaque saying why it was named, why the name is changed for the district itself, so it's an educational moment, a teachable moment for the students and also for the community. >> reporter: for the website we are, they are against the change. we spoke to group representative mercy chew. she says the decision should be put on it advisedly valid where the community can vote without external pressure. there are about 1350 members of that group, you want the name of the district to stay according to judas and. she called the district excellent but once the choice to be left to the community for an official vote, not allow the board to make the final ruling. chu argues there is no name

proof that the name has confederate tires. >> i think people are entitled to believe what racism is, and as a minority, i have my views and i believe others have theirs, and for us not to have a polite dialogue about this right now is sad because it takes away from what racism and the conversations around racism should be. >> reporter: the meeting is tonight at miller creek middle school. doors open to the public at 4:30, and the meeting officially started at 5:30. in san rafael, sara zendehnam, ktvu fox 2 news . san francisco giants fans are going to have to get used to using local park. from here on out this morning crews removed the old at&t park signs so that new oracle signs can be installed. the old signs and letters were taken away on a flatbed truck today. the giants say the whole removal process is going to continue over the next three days. the the giants home opener by the way at oracle park is set

4:34 pm
parties are urging the president to support the bill. >> if you look at the overall contours of this deal, the president gets to build a wall. >> we have a compromise. there are parts of it i am not happy with. i wish we had been able to achieve more, but that is what happens when you sit down into a bipartisan, might. >> reporter: a deal has to be signed by midnight on friday. >> please, mr. president, not everybody got everything they wanted in this bill, but sign it and don't cause a shuttle. >> i don't think you're going to see you shut up you >> reporter: president trump also suggested he's open to using something called transfer authority, a privilege he has to move some of the money in bill after the house approved the. that would potentially give him the ability to put more money toward a wall. in washington, lauren blanchard, fox news. let's talk more now about this border security deal with bill whalen, research fellow there in stamford. thanks so much for being here. the president made it clear he's not happy about this deal,
4:35 pm
but he did stop short saying he would kill it. you expect him to sign off on it? >> yeah, i think i wager he will sign it. when you go to don trump rallies together, the song they play is rolling stone, you can always get you want, but sometimes you get what you need, and donald trump needs this and needs to get out of the subject. he's not going to get a $5.7 billion he wants. he's not happy at $1.35 billion, but he needs to put this issue behind them, so i suspect he will sign it. >> but does he come out of this looking victorious, or the democrats? >> democrats get the short-term win. this is like baseball season. baseball teams lose a lot of games in the regular season. president trump gets a l on this. kellyanne conway, his advisor, and ivanka trump who was not
4:36 pm
the shot but sitting next to her. i expect ivanka is telling him to take this and run. trouble take a loss the short term, but he has a couple of options here, heather, watch where he can go scrounging around, using executive authority. you get close to the $5.7 billion he originally wanted. >> i want to talk a little bit about that because he said he could add to this deal. what might some of those additions look like? >> well, it's a matter of going around the executive branch, heather, and finding available cash. for example, the agriculture department has tens of billions of dollars in loan. he could sell it to a private sector and get billions of dollars that way. barack obama did several things with healthcare, george w. bush did this for funding wars. he needs to learn a lesson. i think the lesson here is about marketing and branding. he's made this about money at all times, not so much about border security, but money with at $5.7 billion figure, and he set himself up a loss because of a divided congress. he's not always going to get what he wants. >> which we are seeing now. bill, what you think about this option of declaring a national emergency? you still see that on the table
4:37 pm
here? >> yes. we talk about there is options. option number one is silent, option number two is to not sign it and create a shutdown, third option, heather, is to declare the national emergency, and here republicans hate the idea. why? two reasons. if he declares national emergency, the house will do a joint declaration to deny the emergency that will force republican senators to vote on the matter that they don't want to vote on, but open to a democratic president coming along in 2020. if that happens and the president can declare a national emergency on climate change, gun control, whatever he or she thinks come so republican would like to see the government avoid that option. >> before i let you go, bill, say the president does in fact sign this deal. where does the issue, where does the debate on illegal immigration go from here? >> comes to the 2020 election, heather, and if trump is smart, he just talks about which party is better on border security, he talked about drugs, he talks about immigrants coming in. he just get away from the
4:38 pm
dollar funding, and on we go. the 2020 election is going to be rough on a lot of things, including illegal immigration. thank you. prioritizing research and development into artificial intelligence. coming up, we're going to talk live with the tech analyst to learn more about the executive order fast tracking ai. and weather, clouds moving into the bay area so far. the rainfall will be developing quite a bit over the next few hours. get ready for excessive rainfall to be headed here once a forecast. we will talk more about the timing coming up.

president trump signed an executive order yesterday to prioritize federal research and development into artificial intelligence. the order also calls on federal agencies to protect privacy and civil liberties as they develop ai technology. however, the measure does not include any new, any funding details are new funding. the administration says it is up to congress to appropriate such funding. for more on this order, we are joined by tech analyst larry. thanks for being with us today. so the order here from the president, the executive order does not include any new funding, so help me understand exactly what it will do, how it intelligence industry. >> well, without funding it's going to be a little tricky, but the purpose is important to compete with china, which is investing a huge amount of
4:42 pm
money on artificial intelligence, and arguably catching up or even ahead of us in some areas, certainly in terms of government going into ai, so that is a big part of it, and as you mentioned try to get some ethical issues, privacy issues, those things in place as well. some of it is symbolic, and if money were allocated, it would obviously have more teeth to it. >> do think as far as getting more money for ai research, that in order like this potentially makes it easier for scientists, researchers to be able to get some of those appropriations from congress in the future? >> it certainly does not hurt. i don't think there's a lot of controversy within congress about the importance of artificial intelligence. now some people might argue that the private sector should be doing the bulk of the funding rather than government money, but i think that some government monday is appropriate just as it is appropriate in some forms of scientific and medical research, things of this nature, so i think this is going to be both a government and private effort, with the
4:43 pm
bulk of the money coming from the private sector, but some come from the government as well. just make sure the ethics in privacy and security are built in. that is really important, and i would like to hope at least that both parties would agree on that. >> i know we talk a lot about you know, some of the ai technology that is out there, the facial recognition technology. a lot of people point to that and some of the concerns around civil liberties. what concerns you the most when you look at some of the ai technology that is out there are in development? >> well, my biggest concern is it is now why do more causing more problems than it solves. award, for example, with ai being built into economy driving, very important, but you want to get it right. you don't want to cause accidents. you want to prevent accident, but i do believe it will, but i believe it's important we get it right as well. ai in terms of security, we want to make sure it locks your house and let you unlock it, and does not let anybody unlock it. it had to be very smart and also be fair.
4:44 pm
