"However, it's not likely to really have any effect. In the meantime, he has rejected the idea of a gas tax holiday that some had hoped would reduce the cost at the pump. I don't think that's an answer to our problems for a couple of reasons. Number one, we still have to build these roads. We're not going to, we should not shut down the construction of the roads and bridges and the systems that we have. But even if he wanted to, the governor couldn't implement a tax holiday on his own. That would have to be approved by the state legislature, which doesn't convene again until next year. Jeff pozole and northwest news radio. Interesting findings from a report on the economic survival of people coming out of the pandemic. Washington state researchers thought they'd find a lot of layers but Andrea bazoli says what they found was a dividing line between the haves and the have nots. Across all those indicators what we saw is that either before we were doing well or they were doing really bad. It was always as people without a college degree experience more health problems work in security debt and conflicts with family and coworkers. Isabella Guzman, President Biden's small business administrator visited Seattle today. She spoke with business owners who were helped by federal efforts such as the paycheck protection program. Those dollars were really key and strengthening those businesses so that they could continue to survive the pandemic effects. Anthony Anton head of the Washington hospitality association agrees. Whether it was the triple P and then the second one with the improvements for small business, the restaurant revitalization fund. He says those programs programs kept small businesses from closing and thousands of workers from losing their jobs.

Chuck sievertson ABC News. Stay connected, stay informed with the northwest's only all news station northwest news radio. Good evening. It is 7 31. I'm Kelly blier, and here are the top local northwest stories. There's a lot of talk about the economic disparities across Washington and around the globe, but as John lobert ini reports a consequences of being poor, may be more than financial. Researchers from Washington state thought they'd find a wide range of people thriving or suffering economically. And we found none of that. But it turns out they didn't, Andrea bazoli says there were just two the haves and have nots. We have tend to be federal educated what I have. We have not only about a third have a college degree or higher. Education was a difference maker, well educated people had better jobs, made more money, enjoyed more jobs security. But when you're poor and struggling, he says, there's a cascading effect. Do you have a poorer physical health less satisfied with your life? You have more work family conflict. The zoli says better jobs, more unemployment and economic equality would help, but he also knows that's a hard ask. John lobert, northwest news radio. The head of the small business administration was in town today touring companies that were helped by some of the pandemic relief programs. The SBA's work mattered. Probably more than any other time. A lot of people didn't even probably recognize how important the SBA was. This time it really mattered. That's Anthony Anton head of the Washington hospitality association. He says programs like the American rescue plan and the paycheck protection program kept small businesses in Washington afloat during the economic downturn, and is appreciative of the fact that a member of President Biden's cabinet came to the state to talk to business owners firsthand. Governor inslee says he's doing what he can to fight inflation, Jeff pojo reports. Some economists and critics of the president have criticized pandemic era programs such as the American rescue plan and the paycheck protection program as contributing to inflation. But inslee rejects that idea. The Harper program had nothing to do with inflation in Hungary or England or Spain. This was an international global phenomenon of inflation that we are experiencing. But there's little the state government can do to fight inflation. Inslee says he is sent a letter to oil company execs demanding they reduce the price of gas, but he is also rejected the idea of a gas tax holiday to give drivers some relief. Jeff pozole and northwest news radio. About 60,000 home sale agreements fell through nationwide in June according to Seattle based Redfin. That marks the highest percentage of failed agreements since March and April of 2020 when the housing market nearly came to a complete halt due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Redfin says a market slowdown has given homeowners more room to negotiate while rising mortgage rates are also forcing the cancellation of some sales. Northwest news time is 7 34.

Here are the top stories from the chemo. 24 7 News Center. Well is California emerges from the pandemic and fully reopens today, people here say. We should be doing the same thing we get more from camels, Brian Calvert. Several people have said. If you add the number of federal and military vaccinations, Washington is actually closer to 68% vaccinated. We need to get those military numbers in and All of a and, uh and hopefully that will make a big difference to us. Anthony Anton with the State Hospitality Association has been passing around a petition asking for an opening today, something governor Inslee likely isn't going to allow, he says. The state is still not projected to get at the goal of 70% vaccinated until the end of the month. And that's when Washington will reopen. And so the sooner we can begin digging ourselves out of this hole. The more likely it is, we'll be able to catch up to our creditors and the other folks that have been patient with us up to this time. So Republican State representative JT Wilcox says, quote we should open up. The people of Washington have come through on that, and we should open up immediately. Brian Calvert Ammonium. There are more indications that scammers are trying to take advantage of the vaccination incentive lottery in this state, and the attorney general's office advises you to be very wary of calls that come from out of state numbers. Official calls will only come from the 253 or 564 area codes. Also watch out for callers that demand a social security number or banking information over the phone callers that say you have to pay a fee to claim a prize 258 new cases of Covid 19 were confirmed by the State Health Department yesterday. That's one of the lowest numbers we've seen since the start of the pandemic. That low number may simply be a sign of the Times. Numbers at the beginning of the week tend to be lower anyway, because most testing sites are closed at least part of the weekend. There are also fewer testing sites in general these days, and the number of tests says decreased significantly. There's more people are vaccinated. A newly passed ordinance says that food delivery apps may no longer deliver meals from a Seattle restaurant without the restaurants written permission. Almost Corwin Hick explains, the City Council's ordinance intends to restore control to restaurants who in some cases have no idea door dash or Uber eats are offering their menus online. Lorena Gonzalez, his City council president, This bill is going to be instrumental in helping restaurants by ensuring their presence on a delivery platform is in their hands and their control. Without the restaurants. Cooperation of delivery APP might offer an old menu with items no longer available that can hurt a restaurant's reputation. And it's an issue for delivery. Drivers to rivers should not have to suffer financially because of this, nor should restaurants take the hit when they have no idea how to customers ordering From an out of date menu. Going forward delivery apps would have to sign an agreement with the restaurant to offer their menu. The ordinance passed the full council. It still needs the mayor's signature.
