"And offer Your service to computers in the peninsula, countering has been hit especially hard by the Corona virus pandemic. Unlike many other transit agencies, countering source of funding and 70% of its operating budget currently comes from passenger affairs. Since the pandemic began, the system's ridership has fallen over 90%. And the agency now faces an $18.5 million budget shortfall. While Caltrain received approximately $41 million of federal Cares Act covert relief funding that money is not expected to last through December. Caltrans fiscal year ends in June. Fine said that, without Measure R R. There will be drastic consequences to countering service. Without the measure, our sales tax proceeds or some other new source of revenue, it is likely the county would have to suspend its passenger service or a minimum drastically reduce. The amount of service it provides. According to Caltrain, if the system were to shut down from extended period of time. Bring it back online could take up to two years and would cost an estimated $150 million. In addition, countering shares its tracks with a number of different transit agencies such as Amtrak, Union Pacific and the Ultimate Corridor Express, even if countering or to stop or pared down its service. The agency would still have to pay for the maintenance on tracks and equipment as a part of its contractual obligations with those agencies. Aaron Peskin is in San Francisco County Supervisor. He said that countering is too important to let it fail. Countering is a remarkable regional public transportation resource that Travel 77 miles from Gilroy, California through San Jose, up the peninsula to San Francisco. Rum and pre coded moved 65,000 people a day they congested, probably wanna one eye's environmentally remarkably sound and efficient. Is being electrified as we speak, was over a half a billion dollars of several money and has an incredible future. The proposed fails. Tanks has been in the works for over a year as part of an effort to stabilize funding for the agency and fund improvements. Ah political squabble between the three counties early in the process nearly tanked the proposal. But after certain agreements were made to reform, the leadership of the agency lawmakers aligned up behind the measure. We'll measure our our money would go first to deal with the current funding crisis, a portion would also go to other specific projects. Countering is currently working to electrify the rails so can phase out slower and more expensive and polluting diesel trains. It's also developing an equity program to help increase access to the system for low income commuters. Who have historically had difficulty making youth of the relatively expensive service. Both of those projects would receive some portion of the sales tax money. Once ridership returns to stable levels, the money would be spent on long term goals of improving and expanding the service and increasing ridership. Peskin said that even setting aside the need for code relief. The measure Our sales tax money is important to the future of both countering and the Bay Area. Kobe is going to end and when Cove it does, and this is a railroad that we predict can go from 65,000 people to as much overtime as a quarter of a million people a day. Moving folks from San Jose and Silicon Valley to downtown San Francisco, dealing with a host of capital needs ranging from grade separations to the extension of countering into the downtown core from its current northern terminus and and other improvements along the system as well as relieving the three counties. In the 30% that currently put in which for San Francisco means that will free up $15 million a year that we can use from uni operations and services.

"It's cake. Edie News. I'm terrorist. Siler. San Francisco's medical examiner's office is reeling from the arrest of a technician at its toxicology lab. Sheriff's deputies in Utah jail just invoke last month for having an evidence bag in his car full of crystal meth. The arrest has thrown thousands of past criminal investigations into question and raised new concerns about how the medical examiner's office runs. These criminal justice reporter Julie Small is here to take us through this And Julie. Why would the medical examiner stored drugs like methamphetamine? And how could a toxicology lab technician allegedly steal them? So the reason why the medical examiner has drugs in storage is because they are going to be investigating any sudden violence or unexpected deaths. And it's part of what they do in an investigative scene. They go out and they collect anything that's on the body is going to be submitted into evidence and with drugs. They're goingto weigh them and measure than making a full catalogue of them and then store them in and then eventually destroy them. And they have pretty strict protocols in place actually in the department, or they did. I spoke to Dr Nicholas Lee most the former chief toxicologist for the medical examiner in San Francisco. He left in 2016. He says he was surprised to hear about the arrest because he put strict protocols in place to ensure that all drugs are logged in and always handled by two technicians at a time who he says should be supervised every step of the way. I am really concerned. The supervising toxicologist and the chief toxicologist were absent when in fact, they should have been president and supervising this process. We're talking hundreds of thousands of medications. Hundreds of thousands off this drugs. The temptation is great. Limo's actually resigned in 2016 after he said he was being pressured to engage in unlawful practices at the office. Hey, had reaching $100,000 settlement for wrongful termination and Julie it seems like there have been a number of high ranking people in that office who have resigned over complaints of mismanagement and poor standards. This is a pretty persistent problem. It seems, Yeah, I mean in 2013. There was a six month backlog and death investigations and then the office lost its accreditation, and they've also struggled to recruit and retain staff. Dr. Judy Melanie worked as a forensic pathologist at the San Francisco Medical examiner's office several years ago. She told me she resigned because the office was poorly run and the morale was low and the reputation of the office had suffered. The repeated problems are management problems, and at some point we have to either have a grand jury inquiry or someone look into the operations of the office and make major changes. Because that seems to come up every few years. So what's gonna happen with San Francisco's medical examiner's office? Are there going to be some changes? We'll have to see if the public defender is demanding a review of all criminal cases and convictions that involved evidence that Justin Volt candle. The district attorney's already estimated that's more than 2500 cases, And he's asking the Board of Supervisors for nearly half a million dollars to review those convictions to make sure The evidence wasn't compromised. Supervisor Aaron Peskin is requesting a report from the legislative analyst today on what structural reforms could be made to the medical examiner's office. To strengthen the integrity of death investigations as forjust involved, city administrators say they've placed him on administrative leave while they investigate the allegations. And as far as I know, the district attorney has not yet filed criminal charges against him. Okay, Well, thank you so much, Julie. Thanks, Tara Duty Criminal.
