since i've gotten here. it has gotten better around here because when i first came two months ago, there was like these streets were lined people, all of it down like doing their drugs on the side of the road and stuff like your own kids and everything like that. but they're not like that anymore. a lot of that progress they say came over the last three months since the mayor declared a state of emergency, allowing the city to bypass bureaucracy and immediately began focusing on some of the most pressing issues facing the tenderloin. mary ellen carroll, from the city's department of emergency management says the order allowed the city to act quickly and even with the emergency order expiring, they can continue to develop programs that started over the last three months. as i stated the other day, we don't need an emergency declaration to respond to an emergency. city officials say the emergency order allowed them to open the linkage center in a matter of weeks, not months to connect homeless and those with mental illness or chemical dependency to city services. and just this week san francisco police committed to increasing the number of officers patrolling the area by at least 20 every day, captain chris
cannon from the tenderloin station, says the additional officers will help build on their successes. there were clearly some some some challenges here, and we're working through that, and there's some momentum and traction. not only is it noticeable to me from what i hear in the community, it's noticeable from kids walking to school. looking forward. people living in the tenderloin say they want to see more police walking the beat and they say they want the city to build on the successes they've seen so far. to address situations like open air drug use. i think there needs to be spots where they can possibly do their drugs off the streets so that you know they can get some kind of help. we also heard from supervisor matt haney, whose district includes the tenderloin, he said the area needs continued investment and attention and that now is the time to expand on solutions. not scale back in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news. investigators blame a 12 year old boy for gunfire at a

abstained from voting on the measure, so there was not enough support. for that bill to pass. this skyrocketing price of gas has some state lawmakers looking for ways to east the burden on california's ktvu. tom baker tells us about a proposal to put $400 back into the pockets of taxpayers. assembly democrats gathered on the steps of the capitol offering like $400 check sometime in the spring, which starts saturday to put that into context for most vehicles for most californians. this $400 rebate is equivalent to a one year gas tax holiday. the democrats theory use a part of the states $65 billion plus surplus. and pay it up front. the idea here is to deliver direct and immediate relief to california consumers who are feeling pain at the pump, and it'll go far in helping with price increases, not only at the pump but at the grocery store and on our utility bills. fact
is 70% of the u. s economy is fueled by consumer spending. this will put money as my colleagues have said, in the pockets of people. and they will turn around and according to their priorities and spend it on what matters. that's what we need right now is money right back in your pocket and then you decide. but why give it to all taxpayers? the high price of gasoline across the world is impacting every family and that's how we should provide assistance to know that californians who are taxpayers are in our grocery stores. we know that they are hit hard with inflation, high rent and say the democrats. this is not one and done. this is not going to be the only proposal on the table. this is not the only thing that we're going to do with our surplus, republicans say killing the gas tax outright is not dead. there is going to be another vote. to suspend the gas tax very soon, and i think that millions of people across california are going to be watching to see how that goes.
the problem here is that the governor has other ideas about how to do rebates. and he hasn't even outlined what that means. and so even though he has a super majority in the legislature, it seems the democrats don't have one final solid plan. tom vacar ktvu. fox two news. alright ever closer to the weekend now as we get into tomorrow friday, which will be a nice day, we talked about that a bit. we're gonna have a little bit of patchy, maybe a little patchy valley fog in the morning, but very little, if any, and then a beautiful day sunny day highs in the mid sixties upper sixties. these were the highs from today. little bit warmer than we're going to see tomorrow but still the general idea of mid and upper sixties. i don't think we'll see as many seventies tomorrow. so that's friday and then saturday, we get those clouds increasing and then an opportunity. for what looks pretty pretty solid opportunity for some showers. 10th of an inch quarter of an inch. half an inch. maybe a half inch in some places, and perhaps in the
mountains. we could see a foot of snow anywhere from three inches to a foot and then the current temperatures about where they were last night, so overnight lows are going to be chilly enough, but not freezing some frost possible open that north based sector 39 in fairfield 45 out in antioch and then temperatures in the round the bay in the forties around san francisco in those areas, so here's the system, and i mentioned this earlier, but you see how everything's kind of not well organized. that's our next system that comes in on saturday, not well organized and that's sort of a function of the time of year. i think that this time of year, the jet stream starts to break itself up a little bit, loses some strength as the temperatures begin to warm further south, and, um, we won't see as much. opportunity for heavy rain. that's why this storm coming in saturday, potentially on in february, might have been brought us an inch and a half. instead it's going to bring us a quarter of an inch in the mountains of winter weather advisory. this is for saturday. again tomorrow is going to be a lot like today.
really nice day. it's saturday, the day that's wet sunday's money. it's gonna be a really nice day on the weekend. here is the morning tomorrow morning, and this is the model. and then there we are tomorrow afternoon. so this is what you care about here. i'll clock it through real slow. so here's the front coming in. here is saturday morning. here's saturday around lunchtime saturday around 2345, and then it's gone and it lingers in the mountains through the evening hours. so be prepared for that. the forecast for tomorrow will be temperatures like these lot like today but slightly cooler. and then the five day forecast, um, is one that you can basically expect. showers on saturday beautiful on sunday next week. clouds come in towards the end of the week. and maybe there's a shot at something else. but again, not a lot of rain from this, but something wet roads, slick roads. change up in the mountains. i'll see you back yourself. thanks, bill. march madness in full swing. the usf dawns in the st mary's gail's trying to keep their seasons alive. sports director market
