"With cloudy skies in Seattle, the temperature is 38 degrees. I've Greg her Schultz Manda is off this morning. And these are our top stories more on that Boeing 7 37 Max. That's just about now about to take off for the first time in two years on a commercial flight. It's an American Airlines flight, and Congressman Peter DeFazio of Oregon, told ABC News that Boeing has a lot to prove. After initially rushing the Max to market, the safety culture was eviscerated under production pressure. FAA did re certify the plane last month, 20 months after the second of two deadly crashes, two other U. S carriers. United and Southwest say they will schedule Max flights in early to mid 2021 overnight of fire destroyed a couple of businesses in a lake City strip mall. This is on North East, 127th Street and 30th Avenue, northeast and compost in East Whitaker has been on the scene all morning. First calls came in just before 11 o'clock last night. Flames blazing when the firefighters got here. Quickly called in extra units to be sure that it didn't spread to any of the nearby apartments or other buildings around it. Ah, Papa Murphy's anchored one end of the building, a smoke shop, the other with a massage, spa restaurant and laundromat in the middle. I can't even imagine what it's like for the people that Actually, I own the place is or even worked there, too. I mean, it's Got hurt for them. One for the Fire department says the fire started in the middle of the building, and then it spread rather quickly, thanks to what the Fire Department calls the void spaces that's sort of like a common area in between all of the businesses. That's how the flames were able to quickly. Race through the entire building. Homeowners time 7 33.

"As it stands right now, it looks like Democrats are poised. To pick up some more seats after their 2010 route, which would sort of parallel the last two Democratic wave elections in 2006, right before Barack Obama won in 2008 and carried a house majority with them. So the amount of money being spent in these races is tremendous. Just since September 1st we've seen more than 100. Sorry, $325 million spent on television advertising, and that's just the outside groups that doesn't include the candidates themselves. We're raising money at just an unprecedented clip. Right now. Democrats have O of what about 232 of the 435 seats, one of the prospects for GOP Gaines and some of those House District most likely to flip in 2020. Yeah, so that Democrats are defending a bunch of the seats that they picked up in the 2018 midterm elections. Ah, lot of seats in California, Orange County, which used to be a big Republican enclave went entirely democratic. In 2018. Republicans going to try to win back some of that territory. They're going to aim for. Or suburban seeds and ex urban seats in places like New York and New Jersey on even by the way, a pretty rural seat held by Congressman Peter DeFazio down in southwest Oregon. That's AH pretty world seat that Republicans have had on the wish list for a very long time. It's an area that has changed dramatically. Justus, the Pacific coast in Washington state, has changed. But Peter DeFazio keeps holding on to that seat when I mentioned at the top that Washington's third congressional district and down on the Southwest part of the state includes like Clark and Cal. It's counties and other counties eyes up with Jamie Herrera Beutler trying to hold on to that seat in challenged by Caroline Long a Democrat..

"On KFBK starting at six PM tonight's more news. Now with Joe Michael's skinny White House officials say President Donald Trump could return to the Oval Office today after being hospitalized over the weekend with covered 19. President's doctor releasing a statement this afternoon, saying the president feels great, but he hasn't been seen by the public since returning to the White House Monday. We get more from ABC News political director recline The Inconvenient Truth and it is the truth is president himself has infected. The president himself was administer oxygen several times the last couple days and well, everyone is praying for his full recovery. It's just a fallacy to say right now that he has fully recovered. He has at the White House access to round the clock medical professionals from the best doctors in the world literally. No one else on the planet is able to do things like that. So the idea that he's back at work and is already defeated. That just does not comport with the facts. Meanwhile, in California Governor Gavin Newsom has a new plan to fight climate change. 30 by 30 by 2030 is the mandate And the goal will be the first state United States America to do both land conservation and coastal conservation. The governor explaining how it works, establishing a framework to preserve and protect over 30% of the state's lands and extend that to our coastal waters as well. Newsome admits the goal is bold, but says it can be achieved. That's a goal that's consistent with our stated goals. On our efforts to change the way we produce and consume energy and advance our low carbon green growth. Newsome of the executive order will preserve and protect 30% of the lands around California. Newsome is also looking to do the same for coastal waters by 2030. The editor in chief of one of the world's top medical journal, says We're entering a dangerous phase in the pandemic, and he's not talking about a second wave, ABC Sherry Preston explains. So Lance, it's Dr Richard Horton says. What's really scary right now is how many people don't trust what doctors who studied Corona viruses are saying about the disease, and in a way he gets it. We are Understanding the nature of this virus much more clearly. But in doing so we're having to throw out some old ideas and bringing in new ideas and that can be confusing. That's the nature of infectious diseases, he says. And what people should remember is that this one is still quite deadly. Sherry Preston. ABC News House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says President Trump's offer agreeing to Corona virus stimulus payments reflects backtracking from his Tuesday tweet calling off negotiations. Pelosi, blaming the president's staff Republican lawmakers, saying it could be related to his covert 19 medications. I said yesterday to my colleagues, I said there are those who say that steroids had an impact on people thinking I don't know. But there are those of healthcare providers who say that also, if you have The Corona virus that has an impact as well. So the combination is something that should be viewed. Pelosi says It's crucial for the country to reach a deal on more stimulus relief. It is really important for us to come to this agreement. When the president just popped off and make that announcement without even informing us that that was the case. He insulted the constitution of the United States. A top aide of the speaker says she reminded Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin that Republicans rejected a Democratic attempt to help the airlines that came from Oregon Congressman Peter DeFazio, who's bill aimed to give airlines nearly $29 billion to aver furloughs last week, Pelosi is ask Mnuchin to refute the DeFazio bill, so uninformed decision can be made. Meantime, President Trump says he's open to stand alone bills to help the U. S economy until the election that includes one that would deliver another round of $1200 checks to many Americans. Students in Lincoln or back to school, with some returning to campus for in person learning students are now on campus and Scott M. Lehman Elementary, which is opening its doors for the first time ever.

A. A. safety engineers to allow the company to have a big hand in the new plane safety assessments Boeing won that fight which led to what Halsey's as a major breakdown of long standing aviation industry wisdom do not certify any new plane that can crash because a single component fails all says that is just what happened with the two seven thirty sevens that crashed the aircraft wrapped in question they had the tragedies neither one has the second sensor feeding information the M. cast the M. caste system that's the automated flight control system and studying the crash is revealed something disturbing not all Boeing seven thirty seven MAX jets came off the assembly line with the same safety mechanisms some had just one sensor feeding that system others had to so why hall says because the second sensor was sold as an extra costlier add on US based airlines all bought it because they can afford to some less well funded international airlines didn't it disturbs me greatly the tasty is being sold by Wayfair craft with their two levels of safety one for those airlines again the Ford and they know the level of safety for the airlines it cannot afford it and therefore the passengers are not as safe on some aircraft is a our other whole wonders what Boeing and the FAA did or didn't do after the first crash that might have prevented the second one where it turned out to someone who will have the opportunity to question a Boeing CEO Dennis Swanberg on Capitol Hill this week congressman Peter DeFazio is a Democrat from Oregon and the chair of the house transportation committee and is with us in our studios thanks so much for coming in thanks for it so we already know quite a lot about what caused the Boeing seven thirty seven MAX planes to crash and Boeing's role in it what more do you and your committee wanted no well there were obviously substantial production pressures at Boeing they're trying to compete with their bus they promised to deliver a plane that would have the same fuel economy and this is what drove this whole disaster they promised that the pilots would not need additional training that's expensive in fact their contract with southwest said if your pilots have to be retrained you get a million Bucks per plane rebate so even before they designed this M. caste system and even before they turned it into a radical system that would take over the plane that was the second iteration of them cast they had said no one on the to be retrained and that drove everything from that point forward and I found out that that was part of the problem in at least one of the crashes right was the problem was the problem it was the problem was an automated system that was radically designed and it took over the plane it would be two and a half degrees of you know it every of the stabilizer every every ten seconds and it couldn't be over ridden with the stick and you had to figure out and what Jim was talking about and he was a great chair by the way was there was something called the disagree light which would light up in your face and I would say the two angle of attack sensors don't agree so you think well that's the problem I better shut that system down except it wasn't easy to shut down the M. caste system particularly in certain flight attitudes and to correct the problem manual so how did these planes with what are clearly flaws that you've just outlined how did they get to the point where they're flying in the sky I mean does it have something to do with the fact the Boeing was essentially allowed to police its own safety mechanisms Boeing did not disclose the radical nature of this system in any coherent way to the F. A. A. but the FAA still should have caught at the FAA should have been totally focused anything that's new or novel is supposed to have an extraordinary level of scrutiny by the FAA and it's supposed to be disclosed by the manufacturer they did not categorize this as a system that was catastrophic if it failed they they it's so so they didn't give Boeing did not give the FAA the information it needed to exert further scrutiny but still the oversight I mean the whole process failed so what needs to change I mean does the FAA need to change this protocol that allows individual manufacturers to to draft their own safety standards nothing that's on a plane they can take it down that safety critical should be solely the purview of Boeing and in this case the law didn't say that it was solely the purview of Boeing there was a Boeing engineer that was an engineer designated as an oversight person by the FAA a and then they're supposed to be an FAA person overseeing that person except there were only forty five people in the F. A. A. overseeing all of Boeing's operations which is another twelve hundred of these DA's these designees so that's a a is to blame in part they certainly share part of the blame and and the and the system shares part of the plan we put a provision the last bill saying we have to have an adequate number of people this was from the pressure airline safety specialists they said Hey we need something in the bill we need to know that there will be enough of airline safety specialist to oversee the system there weren't there wasn't enough scrutiny but but Boeing has a lot to answer for in terms of the way they designed it a single point of failure that is never ever ever done and just recently in seconds remaining in what's the one way you hold Boeing accountable well justice department is going to the biggest accountability that they're looking at criminal violations concealing deliberately concealing from the government that's a criminal violation but beyond that we're going to change the law and see that this can't ever happen again at Boeing or any other manufacturer of any critical airplane part congressman Peter DeFazio chair of.

"Have enthusiastically promoted the company's products, even as announced the grounding of the seven thirty seven max jets last week, President Trump took pains to call. Oh, Boeing an incredible company. Also, one of our largest exporters. One of our truly one of the truly great companies of the world that have to figure it out fast. They know that a lot of people are trying to figure out fast. What went wrong then allowed to Boeing jetliners to craft within five months of each other in what appear to be similar circumstances. Oregon congressman Peter defazio who chairs the house transportation committee wants to know how the Federal Aviation Administration came to approve the new planes with a software feature that automatically points. The jets nose downward if a single sensor indicates it's climbing to sharply historically, Boeing, let pilots fly the plane. That was a new addition. It certainly should have been highlighted noted. And I believe it should require training. Defazio says before the first crash last October, many pilots weren't even aware of the new software. He's also concerned that many 737 max jets did not include a warning indicator to alert pilots that the critical sensor might be malfunctioning Boeing offered such an indicator but only as an optional. Add-on that'd be like selling me, a car that doesn't have either a gauge or red light to tell me the engine's overheating. And you just drive it until it blows up that doesn't make sense to me. Boeing says it's absolutely committed to aircraft's safety and working cooperatively with the various investigations, the company says it will soon release an update to the software feature which is suspected of contributing to at least one and perhaps both deadly crashes. The Seattle times reported this week that much of the work of certifying the new planes was carried out not by the FAA. But by Boeing's own employees defazio says he's worried for years about delegating that kind of a thorny to the company. Mike Perron who leads a union representing FAA employee's says the agency needs to invest more in its own inspectors our position is inspector should be out there visiting the facilities doing what they used to do many many years ago staying a little bit back from being I'll say cozy with the industry to be the regulatory side after the second crash. Two weeks ago? The FAA was slow to ground the seven thirty seven MAC's acting only after nearly every other country had already done. So the agency says it was waiting for evidence that would tie the two crashes together the acting head the FAA used to work for Boeing trade association. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan was also a longtime Boeing executive and the Pentagon inspector general's now investigating whether Shanahan violated ethics rules by promoting Boeing as a defense contractor while disparaging its rivals. Shanahan says he welcomes that probe ordinarily an ethics investigation would be pretty much below the radar but in the current environment. Everything connected to Boeing is under a powerful microscope. Congressman defazio says the jet maker and its US regulators still have an outstanding safety record. But he sees an opportunity to make them even safer. Scott Horsely NPR news, Washington. The late winter flooding in the midwest and plain states continues this weekend. Busted, levies submerged towns and farms Nebraska's, looking at one point four billion dollars of damage, Iowa one point six joined now by John remiss, he's chief of the Missouri river basin water management division at the US. Army corps of engineers, this story misses an Omaha. Thanks so much for being with us. I'm glad to help out. What do you expect the weekend goes on? Well, we're expecting that indeed remain snowpack in the dark Dakota in South Dakota. Melt and you're gonna see. Another uptick. Upswing of the flow is coming out of the southeast southeast, South Dakota. Tributaries which will provide another another boost to the river downstream of new city Iowa. But not as high as. He's the one we saw earlier this week. So the flooding is certainly not gonna deliver on the Missouri. River for the next several days is it should be as bad as it has been the last. Few days. So so the conditions will persist for several more days at any rate. Yes. You in the army corps of engineer regulate. The flow of the Missouri river through a series of dams, and as I'm sure you know, this week Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa question. Why flood prevention hadn't been the top priority and managing the river. Can you help explain what the priorities are and where plug prevention fits into that? Well, we have eight authorized purposes inflict control is one of those authorized purposes when we get into a situation like we had this weekend. Control is the priority. You're what happened with this particular flood is that it is produced from runoff from tributary. Streams come in below are large storage reservoirs up there in South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana. All of this enter into the Missouri. River in really the lower basin, which you have almost no authority to control that flood mystery. Mitch, I know you've got a specific job to do and have to stay above the fray, but all over the world. There seemed to be these lifetime weather events that are occurring not just once in a lifetime. But every every year, so do you feel flooding like this is in the future for the American midwest? I really couldn't answer that question. I think we we've been in a wet cycle for a few years in the Missouri river basin. That I don't like couldn't say that. This is a a new normal or whether it's just a wet Saiful funny. I really I really couldn't say one way or the other was near intensive flooding in two thousand eleven to. Yes, there was and that was a completely different type of flood remorse amount of mountain snow water combined with the some very large rainstorms and most of that water came from the upper basin down through Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri. So it's completely different types of flood. If if resources were more generous have not unlimited anything more that your agency could do. Well, I think that as a whole I think we could. Revisit some of our flood control projects levies projects of some of the tributaries. But I don't think there's anything that anybody could point to right now that says we need to build this project or modify this project in any certain way that would solve this particular problem or any problems of maybe in the future. I I don't think anybody has the answer. Certainly some things that we could look at John Ramos of the US army corps of engineers in Omaha. Thanks so much for being with us, sir. Thank you..

One we saw earlier this week. So the flooding is certainly not gonna deliver on the Missouri. River for the next several days. It should be as bad as it has been. The last. Few days. So so the conditions will persist for several more days at any rate. Yes. You in the army corps of engineer regulate. The flow of the Missouri river through a series of dams, and as I'm sure you know, this week. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa question. Why flood prevention hadn't been the top priority and managing the river. Can you help explain what the priorities are and where plug prevention fit into that? Well, we have a authorized purposes in flood control is one of those authorized purposes let me get into a situation. Like we had this weekend control is though the priority here what happened with this particular flood is that it is reduced from runoff from tributary. Streams have come in below are large storage reservoirs up in South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana all of this enter into the Missouri. River in really the lower basin, which almost no authority to control that flood. Mr ramos. I know you've got a specific job to do and have to stay above the fray. All over the world. There seemed to be these lifetime weather events that are occurring not just once in a lifetime. But every every year, so do you feel flooding like this is in the future for the American midwest? I really couldn't answer that question. I think we we've been in a wet cycle for a few years in the Missouri river basin. That I don't like couldn't say that. This is a a new normal or whether it's just a wet Saiful. So I really I really couldn't say one way or the other was near intensive flooding in two thousand eleven to. Yes, there was and that was a completely different type of flood enormous amount of mountain snow water combined with some very large rainstorms and most of that water came from the upper basin down through brass. Missouri. So it's a completely different types of flood. If if resources were more generous have not unlimited anything more that your agency could do. Well, I think that as a as a whole I think we could revisit some of our flood control projects levies projects intimidate tributaries. I don't think there's anything that anybody could point to right now that you need to build this project or modify this project in any certain way that would solve this particular problem or any problems of maybe in the future. I I don't think anybody has the answer. Certainly some things that we could look at John Ramos of the US army corps of engineers in Omaha. Thanks so much for being with us, sir. Thank you..

Airplane model is the same. Some key. Circumstances are remarkably similar on the outcome was equally tragic. It's no wonder then that a number of questions are being raised about the safety of Boeing's, seven thirty seven max, eight aircraft. The accident. Drew immediate parallels to yuck. Tober crash of a lion air plane in Indonesia that killed one eighty nine. But experts warn that doesn't mean the reasons they plummeted were the same more from. Hey, Ortiz staff reporter at USA today or he explain some of the correct? Six of the crash were very similar shortly after takeoff the pilots run into a problem. They try to return to the airport, and they can't make it and indicates OPA lion air in Indonesia. They haven't ascertained across. But one of the areas are looking at is a Hollywood the automatic flight control that caused it plane the plane nose to go down and then the the plane ended up nosediving into the into the sea. And so. This one one of the scary aspect of this crashes yet the no side was so steep that day was barely any recognisable pieces of fuselage left. Most of this stuff was you're talking applied into you. Just million pizzas. So so that tells you that the plane crash at a tremendous amount of speed and why? I know why they don't know debts. It the same reason. Because of some of the similarities. It's there. There's an initial connection there. Now experts warn you don't jump to conclusions yet. Needs to be investigated about this. But those two characteristics. Going to provide a strong link, and you know, it's it's Gary people away. Why there's lease one person in your story saying you can't blame Boeing just yet. How come because it's sorely because you need to find out what were the factors involved. You look at the field. You look at. I think that you've recovered the black boxes. So you analyze that information? They look at a lot of different factors to determine what? Because what I mean the lion? Air crash was four and a half months ago and still haven't officially determined costs. So these things take a lot of time. And we don't know yet. What the cause was. That's why the people I spoke with the don't jump to a conclusion yet, you know, the be awesome, suspicions development. Terrorism. But just you know, just that connection between the two, but it's way to make that determination. We're speaking with Hore. He Ortiz staff reporter at USA today. Talking about questions raised regarding safety for that Boeing seven thirty-seven max that went down in Ethiopia over the weekend. You wrote that's a Boeing did not take the costly step of retraining pilots on a new feature of the flight control system. When introduced this this max eight in two thousand seventeen what's the significance of that? Well, they obey argue that the plan is similar enough to some of the thirty seven thirty seven models that the pilots should be able to to know what to do in an emergency. Like this develops were visit mock function in the flight control system. But if I'm the Tyler I wanna know every single new development on a plane. I wanna do any little change because it could affect you. What happened to the plane? Lots of people including my own as a pilot. So. I think they they save some money by by not doing they're retraining because that can be expensive. But is there a connection between that? And and these crashes. You start to wonder now, particularly you know, that first one there seems to be a connection, and you know, right after that point out in a dietary. The pilots. This is how you engage that that system, but those pilots of lion. Air pilots did not know about it. Now, what it should be pointed out is that the Lionair plane had they had been some reports about maintenance issues previous like where that's not the case with this would this plane. So that's why it's not right to jump to conclusion right away because they're addicted be other factors involved. Some of the people I spoke with that. It's never one thing that causes a plane to crash it's always a series of saying. So we don't know what those things are. Yes. Jose Jose Ortiz. Staff reporter at USA today. House speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's not for impeaching President Trump unless there's something so.
