"His quote was we are And in fact, it's scheduled for June. 11th So, 10 days away, Rick Pearson. How about that? It's right around the corner. Amazing Who could believe it? Who could believe it? I mean, it's just why this has been almost like a self like a decade. There's no didn't it the way it chipped away at everyone's lives and just where we've been and what we've been Through, I get it. Speaking of who can believe it? I saw that governor Pritzker's chief of staff, also said There's absolutely no way in a million years. If you told me a year ago when all this was happening and hitting us That we were going to come out in this kind of fiscal shape. I would never have believed you never believed you. As you pointed out to us just minutes ago, Illinois is on the cusp of being in the best physical shape. It's been in years thanks to the big federal funding and also the better than expected state revenue far exceeding what they thought. Really It's it's the state revenue is, you know there was that time If you remember 67 months ago, where the governor was pleading with Congress under the old Congress to please Help the states. Please help the states and now that that half of the new Congress was sworn in and under Biden, Now that $8.1 billion a stakeout is almost considered gravy. In fact. They're only spending $2.5 billion of it this year and that that four years suspended so they're holding that money down the road. But yeah, that that the tax receipts have been unbelievable. Part of that was like, you know, kind of budgetary things because income tax deadline was moved. So the receipts come in at a different time. But nevertheless, Pritzker in this press conference where he announced the face five also talked about how this really seems to be a turning point in trying to help a state that has always been a fiscal basket case that this is a turning point into perhaps Stabilization here and curing some of the structural financial problems that exist. Having said that the budget does a levee about $600 million in taxes on the business community. Pritzker calls it called closing corporate loopholes. Basically, these are changes that were adopted for businesses during the Trump administration. The state's income tax is tied to the federal income pecs. This would be coupled the state from the federal income tax for a variety of tax changes. And, of course, the business community isn't happy about that. Yeah, we're going to talk to someone from the small business community coming up on the show about what this means, because they're saying it's closing corporate loopholes. I think the read from some small businesses is this is A big problem for them financially in terms of staying in business after coming off of the year. They just came off of two that you're sort of allowing some of the tax deductions that they've had as they try to dig out of a nightmare to go away. So there are lots of sides to that story. Hey it just a minute or two left your Rick, But I do want to ask you. You mentioned bills with bipartisan support were few and far between one of them that seemed to get Ah, lot of support. Was this ethics bill? I wonder what you make of this. This has been a long time coming. Yeah, but you know, it isn't all of it. It's a ramped up to be here. There's even the governor himself admitted that this is mainly a first step. There's there's still plenty of loopholes here about financial disclosure about lawmakers playing on getting paid as lobbyists for other units of government. There's a six month tour revolving door clause that if you leave government, you can't turn around become a lobbyist for six months. Well, most states that have a revolving door. It's 12 year Ban. So this is a I think well to step. I think it's a very small step, and there's a lot more work that needs to be done when it comes to ethics and trying to restore people's faith and state government. If you look at the issues, my idea, look at the comment indictment and work backwards and say, How did all this get allowed to happen? How did all these people get to do what they did, and sort of eliminate those possibilities? I doesn't sound like this is doing that. It sounds like it's very like you say, first step. Just the beginning. It's small steps. And then when I talked about that energy bill later earlier, you know that's one of the problems. You've got comment that admit it. With the $200 million fine that it sought used bribes and other ways to try to influence Mike Madigan, a speaker for favorable legislation. Now you have the state dealing with comments parent company looking for basically an effort to bail out its nuclear fleet. So complicated. I'm saying, How do you keep the street with one hour of sleep, Rick? How does how do you do that? I hope I did. I hope I did You did you totally did. I wouldn't have known. I appreciate it. I appreciate for joining Rick. It's good talking with you and hope you get some rest today. It's for Shana's always thank you course it's a bottom of the hour time.

Illinois House Republicans say they're not opposed the legislation letting the General Assembly meet remotely in case of emergency. Democrats are pushing a bill giving the Legislature the ability to take action outside the state Capitol when needed.

Clean bill and these unprecedented times that we're all in, at least if we could get the bill structure to be boards committees.

In so ps touchdown. Logan thomas in washington and extra point away from tying snapping hold are good and hopkins has got it down to down a one and the washington. Football team with the upset in pittsburgh and the steelers are undefeated. No more and it took between alex. Smith was the comeback player of the year before he even touched a football field colfax. You've seen pictures of his leg. Then you and i. We would still be lying if that happened to us. This guy's playing football any just beat the best football team in the nfl. Thirty one to forty six two hundred ninety six yards and a touchdown. I love that man. I just chills alex smith. What a great story in this terrible terrible year that is twenty twenty and finally the bills beat the forty niners. Thirty four to twenty four. The bills are nine and three josh allen. Thirty two of forty. Three hundred seventy five and four touchdowns. Bill swallow when you see you see josh allen do things like that and and drew locks kinda where he is at this stage and colefax knocking drew. Lock ally here at this this week. Can we have been for several weeks. I suppose but you're just not seeing the glimpses josh allen. Even at the beginning of the season. I was watching Good morning football on the nfl network elect to watch that in the early in the mornings. And the david said you know josh allen. Is this kind of he's just rebel. Going play really really good football and then suddenly you're gonna see just a crazy player to that's either going to result in absolute madness. And he he almost get sacked. He finds a way he throws up tip. It's caught firsthand. Whatever or he's going to get sacked fumble it crazy interception. He was doing some of that early in the season. He's cleaning up some of those early mistakes where his brain just kind of checks out for a player to and now he's got his team at a nine and three record and broncos fans today again talking about what could have been you know you and i were looking at that draft class from eighteen and denver passed on josh allen and lamar jackson. They were there you know. Bradley chubb is a fine player. But it's we're always talk about that for the rest of allen's career. He won't be known as the in. Especially if allen just goes on to really extraordinary things. He's going to be known as that quarterback that elway let get away and especially guys in his own backyard. Do we saw with phillip lindsay. We stay with josh allen. It's frustrating hi. Dan brady long time listener. First-time texter okay. Remind me again. How much better. The texans are than the browns. Yeah pillow fight. Dan and i had our our quarrel. I'll admit it you're right. The browns turned it around. I don't know how they've done it. I three weeks ago. I was questioning saying. This team has too good of a record. I don't understand that game over. The weekend was fun to watch though. Brown's look good yes colfax. I just wanted to point out that back in two thousand seventeen. The boise state broncos beat the wyoming cowboys brett rippin versus josh allen. Twenty four so are you saying we should give a shot doing that out there dynamite. So what was the staff. Do you have the box score. Brought up there. Yes what do you need. What was bread. Stick bread rippin. So yeah that line. Brad had fourteen out of nineteen completions. Hundred twenty four yards does sound interceptions. None of those. It was well see josh allen. Had a lot of those games wyoming. Josh allen had twelve twenty seven hundred thirty one yards one touchdown to interception up. Go back and look at a lot of josh allen games and you're going to see a lot of games like the game. They played a few years back in the snow game. I mean i get. It was snowing But i've seen quarterback threw for three hundred yards in snow. Game patrick mahomes does it all the time. So it'd be alan similar stats. So why was bred rippin. Why wasn't he drafted. Because i even all the the projections that i had. I figured rippin would go in the third or fourth round. You know. he was pretty good with boise state. never he doesn't get drafted. That's a great point. Well they were top twenty five team for a year to right. Yeah that last year before they typically are and rippin. We had the debate. Remember we did. We did a poll question for this. It was who was when cs. You still had nick stevens. It was who is gonna be the better quarterback this year. Nick stevens brett rippin or josh allen and i. I don't i'm not for sure on this but i'm pretty sure we got more votes for ribbon and i trust hooligans on this so maybe the answer is you know with or without drew lock you go into the offseason with both of those guys and you let them duke it out. I admit i wanted to see brett ripping. I i will say. I'm bummed about the whole quarterback room because it wasn't just drew it gets you know doesn't get a play. It's it's bread to and i wanted to see. I want to see more of him. But that's not. I can tell you that's is much as i want that to happen. Is that a game plan going in and if it fails which i would suppose an undrafted guy. Chances are you're gonna be broncos. Country is going to be at you again for going into an off season with a guy. You don't think drew lock and guides unproven abroad rippin. But i'm with you. I mean i'd like to see it. I'd like to see him. Get an opportunity sir. Charles quote of the day the eagles. They're actually no. Oh the giants you mean. The eagles are not The giants are actually playing some good football therefore five and seven leading their division. Isn't that like kind of like putting whipped cream on top of poop. Oh sir charles. charles Do the giants are pretty good. Did you hear colin cowherd. He'll he's gonna say it on the show today. I saw it as preview video. He thinks that the giants are better than pittsburgh. Now like right now. Put them up against each other. He's taken the giants to win. It's what he said. I mean he's yeah gets address. He said broncos whereas darkhorse super bowl. I think he'll syndrome drew. Lock the doors to the mvp. He in fairness he finally backs away from that to start. The season does it you. Can you hold it to them. If they back away. Right at the start of the season. I guess he must have got some payments he must have heard something he must have got some kind of insider information. That's like actually we're watching. Are you cool to dancing stuff that he does because that's coming to surface again. I'd prefer if he did backflips in there too. Yeah right. before he scores a touchdown that'd be best. Yeah i don't have a problem with it if it's a bronco pillow dance vilify. Dan says you'll be able to see more of rippin four years when he's in the xfl playing for the memphis. Hello i pay to go. See the memphis vs. Is that even a team. Because not a real the memphis honeybees like. Let's make that happen.

"Again told free right now at 8667336786, or get in touch on Twitter and Facebook. We're at four more email Any questions you might have to form a TxDOT organ. We're getting some emails. Let me read a few of them, Rich writes. I could not be more opposed to measure R R. Well, Caltrain needs a stable funding source. These constant moves to raise sales tax is not the way to do it. We're almost at a 10% combined state and local sales tax with little to show for it. Potholes, school funding shortages, et cetera. Pfosten says. I think it's foolish to keep tell Caltrain running. When would be better to use the Caltrain? Right of way to expand bar down the peninsula one address out then, um, well as two of the second point You know, Bart is an extremely expensive system. The mood of the of the park taxpayer as well as the General Bay Area. Taxpayer is not Teo Extend Bart, but they have Bart concentrate on I'm fixing the system had already has now that being said party is being extended from the other direction from Fremont, you know, into San Jose. It opened 10 Mile extension earlier this year, and then it plans to over the next decade, building an extension into Downtown San Jose and Sunnyvale Asses to the first point about, you know the sales tax fatigue. Listen, I can't really argue with that. No, we'll see at the ballot box. There's there have been mixed signals about that. But there were a couple of transportation taxes that went down in March of one was the smart tax for the Sonoma Marin. Rapid transit system and and another one went down in Contra Costa County, so we'll see. But you know the truth is you have a system that the public has invested very heavily. You mentioned Partner agencies. So Santa Clara County in San Francisco County as well, San Mateo County all provide operating support every year, and this tax actually would remove the need for for them to do that the agency would be sort of quote unquote so self supporting under this measure. But you know, there's ah system there that actually plays a huge part in reducing traffic congestion helps thie. I guess I'm getting into proponents. Arguments now. And it would help the state meet its greenhouse gas reduction goals. And without that you're going when when we do return to normal, and it's hard to Remember, but we will return to something where people will have a need to travel back and forth every day. We're not going to be in this situation of being hunkered down forever. A year or two is not eternity. So when we wake up in his 2025, we need to get back and forths places we're going to need Bart in Caltrain and all these other agencies question there. There. No ones, And this is how many people are going to continue working at home and how many people are gonna continue to avail themselves. Of the service. But you mentioned some of the pro arguments and that pole that you also mention, which is a public opinion poll that was commissioned by the agency. Had not only two thirds roughly in the three counties supporting the one a cent sales tax. But they asked for priorities and top reasons for supporting among about 1250 likely voters and The first thing was these traffic. The second thing was reduced air pollution like you said, there's a plan to reduce diesel. That's in the works. Azzam sure you're well aware by to go down about 97% by 2040. But the third was essentially to improve frequency and capacity. And we're still that about 3500 people writing Caltrain unless we forget here, most of them lower income people. Everybody associates Caltrain with People in the higher income brackets, you know, going down a Silicon Valley and the like, but they're now many essential workers dependent on the service and let's bring a collar on here. Chris joins us from Santa. Lt's a Chris welcome. You're on the air. Hey, thinking Michael to taking the call, You know? So I voted yes, on the measure, because I like so many others here in California. You know, we rely on the counsel train system to get a student from Francisco. And I think I speak for a lot of us when I say like if we have to make that drive. Every single day. Like I'm ripping my hair out. It would just be like completely unbearable. Encountering just makes it so easy for us to do on the train do work on the way up to the city. And, you know, be able to get home and just kind of relax and decompress and having to sit through like two hours of traffic and stuff, and it's crazy to me that us in the community Are not financing this in some capacity right? Like I didn't even know it didn't have its own dedicated budget like that's just not to me, considering just how many people there lie on it. So, Yeah, I'm voting. Yes. And I encourage others to vote. Yes, because it really isn't important service community. Thank you guys. So much for talking about. Well, thank you. Chris gets here from you and appreciate your call on Dan Brady. It's not a whole lot of opposition to the sales tax, we should say, even though some feel that it would hurt blue collar workers and be a regressive sales tax. Former mayor of Foster City Jim Lawrence is one of those who has come out in opposition. But he has said is, I think it's come up already in our discussion here that Maybe it's a dinosaur and taxpayers keep propping it up as a dinosaur. That's the argument you're here. Well, you know, it's it's a little hard Teo to call these services that we need and should be available to everybody for the lowest possible cost dinosaurs. You know, eso getting into the the pro and anti sides. I mean, there is a a relatively well funded campaign for the measure. There are business groups, the Silicon Valley Leadership group in the Bay Area Council support this. Facebook is a big donor to the campaign. There are no major elected officials, Senator Dianne Feinstein has signed on to this, You know, to vote for the tax, and there are transit advocates. You know, people who are really looking to MIT. The entire Bay area together in a in a seamless transit network are behind us and then on the other side, the major opposition comes from the Silicon Valley Taxpayers Association. They do cite the the aggressive nature of the of the tax of any sales tax. And you know one thing that I would point to that a lot of people. Well, you know another opponent. Let me just mentioned as the Green Party of San Francisco who you would expect to be, you know, gung ho for for transit and transit support is also against this because of the of the aggressive nature of the tax, but They? Their argument Following on that is that transit should be free, so it's not going to be free any time soon because of of the expense involved, But Caltrain is one of the agencies around the Bay Area that is involved in a pilot project to create lower fares of more affordable fairs or For lower income workers, and Caltrain did take the step of sort of offering a 50% reduced fare for those workers. It's a means tested thing you have to qualify for it. Right now. The ridership surveys they're doing suggests that the usual writers, many of whom earned more than $100,000 a year, some a good chunk of them more than 20% earned more than $200,000 here are not writing much. A lot of them are working from home, but the more essential workers Poor unless make up a larger share of the daily ridership. So I think that's what we're looking to, you know, not just with Caltrain. But beyond is trying to create a network. Where where everybody can you can take advantage of it. And that's something you see, by the way very strongly in San Francisco. Where Mu Ni Has really.

Those representatives sat together in the front row in the House and called it. Farmers row stay representative. Dan Brady of normal says rops. Approachable style has inflicted his own retail politics approach to government service. And think about a guy who knew everybody ahead Mitch you by the time.

Rop was known for building bridges instead of burning them. Something that could seem quaint today. According to Bill Kemp the Librarian at the Mclean County Museum of History. He would always leave the legislature the house representatives from the pledge of allegiance to begin a session. That was born in many ways in this age of hyper partisanship.

The new corona virus pandemic has impacted nearly every sector of Illinois Economy. In the state's farms large and small have begun to feel the pinch themselves producers worked to put food on grocery store shelves. Those same people have had to change aspects of the way they conduct day to day activities. Our reporters Sam Dunk Law talked with Krista Swanson she farms with her family in Knox County. She's also a see dealer and Researches Agricultural Economics and policy at the University of Illinois. She offered a few insights on what it's like to be farming during a pandemic KRISTA. Were just about to get into the spring planting season. Spring is now of course upon us. So how has that activity been affected by your big virus pandemic? Yeah this isn't only a critical time across the nation but it's also a really critical time of year on our farms because we are right at the beginning of planting season here in Illinois and that means that there's a lot happening on the farms we have to Have to do more interacting than normal I guess to get the input that we need for example seed and fertilizer or Maybe finishing your taxes. There's a lot of things that are happening right now and over the past month Since you know the effects of the virus have come into play on how we do things and so we're having to figure out how to change those interactions Like for example In addition to farming we are also a feed supplier of of agricultural seed like corn and soybean seed to other farmers as well and so one thing that has changed. Is You know agribusinesses like the seat company that we work with have waived you normally when we deliver the seed. We would need to get a signature from the farmer who's getting that seat and and that requirements been waived for this year. So I think that there's been some simple changes like that. That have just changed the way that some of these interactions normally happen And and have allowed people to be able to still meet the social distancing requirements. While still getting the things done that we need to to keep to keep our farms running and and make sure that we can make it through the planting season. You know. I'm curious. I know the weather has been going back and forth on top of the virus pandemic Have you been able to get into your fields to plan to? Have you heard from others? Have they been able to do the same Or have there been delays with this virus. Going around yeah. There's definitely been some planting that's happened. We actually Planted a little bit earlier this week and I know some other farms have as well. It's it's still a little bit early To be to be planting but Even if you're not planting yet there's still a lot of other fieldwork. That might need to be done to finish preparing your fields for planting farmers are always used to dealing with weather and this year. We have the challenge of win is. When are we going to get that optimal window You know with the weather and and what might be happening with the virus at that time You know how might over the coming couple of weeks where we're in that optimal period for planting How you know what? What impact is the virus going to have on our day to day lives and those interactions that we can have Or need to be having to to get the inputs we need to Plantar crop in your view. A Win something. Unprecedented like this comes along. Doesn't impact smaller farms more. You know does it really take a larger toll on the bigger farming operations like co-ops? Well I really think that This situation is going to cause challenges for you. Know really farms of all sizes. I mean larger farms sometimes have the benefit of economies of scale when it comes to the expense end but you know there are still subject to the price in the marketplace that You know the same. A farm selling the same product or the same agricultural. Good of any size is going to face. So I really think that this situation With the just uncertainty in the marketplace And you know. Markets always tend to have expectation for at this point in the growing season expectations for for big crops than in two thousand and twenty and so It's prices the combination of those things keeps prices at the points where they are now. It's it's GonNa Cause cashflow challenges and probably make it difficult to break. Even on farms of all sizes are you concerned about the long term impacts on this is going to do to agriculture or at this point. Is it really more about things like the weather? It's really a combination. I think when we think about what are concerned for this year On the farm. It's it's a combination of you know whether trade a lot of those things that you know that that we normally have impacting the prices that we can get for our Agricultural goods that were producing and then on top of that we also have the concerns of what is The impact of this virus going to be on our economy. I mean even if and hopefully you know oh by the beginning of the summer we see the pressures of the virus on From a health perspective reducing. Our you know becoming lower than what what they are right now but then because this is such a an unprecedented situation in in modern times. It's it's hard to predict how long How long that might continue. And what that might mean intern..

"In the basement of the state capital. I'm in Springfield, Illinois, and back home in Chicago is the editorial cartoonist this Tribune, Scott Stanton's. He is in our skyline performance space actually are all safe performance base. I wanna thank everyone who is join us so far, for those of you who are wondering we have we have booked several senators who are tied up in budget conversations, the legislature is still working on a passing bills passing. So what they're working on Scott are is the budget, we have the capital spending Bill, the look to either. They also the gaming. So the gambling bills, one of the things that it kind of puts a bit of a, a Renton, thanks because they need the gambling Bill as part of the capital spending Bill for infrastructure. For building roads and bridges, and. There is some. Did hear that? Can you hear what's in the basement side alive fee to a twenty on the Senate? So a believe they're calling something right now. And I don't think that the senators who had booked we have an and we will try to continue to have them on the show with Senator plumber, who has to be on, on, on the floor and Senator writer, who also has to be on the floor because they are going to be debating the budget. I believe, and I'm actually texting Senator writer right now who announced he would not be running for reelection. And he, of course, is a very dynamic legislator is very passionate about his work, and I was looking forward to having him on the show particular for a lot of our listeners, you know, there are fewer Republicans in general, obviously, in the Senate in the house of house representatives, and they and the other things got I are an exception, most of the conservatives, I talked to you go to bed early. Golden gate. Whatever is, by the way, that's that's you know, thought to say that Democrats are always like, yeah, I'll stay up late. There are Democrats who, who will tell me they're onto that. I'm onto late. And I, we're going to be doing in the next few months is making sure that I make time on to record some interviews. So that our listeners can get, you know, a feeling for what's going on, on both sides of the aisle. The fact is that when you have a party that's kind of frustrated with, with what is going on. They're working very hard to fight for what they believe in, and that doesn't necessarily enough time to get on the air with us, especially right now when they're in the middle of working on these bills. So I want to thank the legislators who have actually. I mean even agreeing to be on late. I mean, that's a, that's a big deal to say you're going to be on at midnight. It's a big commitment. I want to thank those. So I'm texting Senator writer right now t- episodes. I'm I'm trying to do double duty I'm booking the show while we're talking Scott. So, so far, you know, I know that you've been following this, whether it's the legalization of recreational marijuana or the women's health Bill, of course, the budget is prominent in so many of our our minds when it comes to paying down our debts and making sure that our bills get paid without raising taxes. What's your sense, so far of what you've heard from Springfield, Scott? Well, it sounds like I'm looking at the vote totals. Now. That's why I was curious what the Senate vote on the reproductive rights, Bill was, but the house, cannabis vote was sixty six to forty seven. So that, that's a little closer than I expected, quite frankly, on the budget. It was eighty three to thirty five which is astounding to me that so many Republicans look at look at this budget. And thought this was, you know, the they, they saw something that they could vote for, you know, so, so what else is coming up. We have reproductive rights, you have cannabis laws, you have the budget. That's now passed you have a capital. Now, the you said there is a fly in the argument on the capital Bill because mayor Lightfoot has some reservations about. About. Oh, gosh, was some aspect of the gaming Bill. Right. Yes. So, you know, it's the capital Bill, but there are aspects of the capital, Bill that are disturbing. I mean, yes, there's not. They pass this Bill. It's budget. It's, it's balanced. There are things from my perspective. I fiscal conservative first and foremost, and, you know, we have a surplus in the state, thanks to the Trump Konami. There's no, that's the truth and rather than look at this money and say, okay, why don't we pay down some of the dad pay some of the bills? We the the first instinct was. Let's spend it on other stuff and you just going, oh my, that's what got us into this. Trouble in the first place. Let's try to be adults and, and, and pay down our debts on the capital, Bill. You've got some tax increases that are pretty strong. I mean, the guy what double the gasoline tax is one of them the liquor tax is going to go up and so. There's still some stuff that's disturbing for someone like me and going forward. So my sense of this, though, is that's a well oiled democratic machine. Democratic Party machine democrat party issues, and there's nothing wrong with that. They're the ones to. They won the election, you know, up and down the ballot. They won by a lot. You know, there was a listener who said that Republicans are just voting because or voting in favour, because they think that their votes don't matter, so to that I would say, then why would have Republican stand and say, this Representative Dan, Brady said it's not perfect. And is there such a thing? He said this Bill, this budget does four things. It's balanced. It pays down our debt. It stabilizes the pension, there are pension responsibilities with payments, and it funds education, not just K through twelve but also higher education. It helps it helps areas it helps high techs areas lower their property taxes. So for those in the end these, you know, it's I say this over and over again, it's easy to be cynical in this is why I ask folks to find out what their legislators are doing. But maybe it's also watching, I L the I'll J dot gov website so you can see folks giving these legisla. Giving their speeches and sharing their thoughts their morals in their process arriving to their votes. And so, again, that's from Representative Brady, who is a Republican leader, Durkin, Jim Durkin rose to say that this is something that we're doing the best for our kids. We are. Oh tonight is a start. This is what Representative Durkin D. He is the minority leader. He said tonight is a start. It's balanced, and it's fair to Illinois ins to businesses to tax payers. And that's where Republican, we're doing the best for our kids. There's a five percent increase in higher education. There has been devastation over the last few years for our college students for community colleges for places like the university of Illinois, as we know southern Illinois university. He also addressed the tragedies that have befallen our children who are in the care of DCFS, right? Who've been I mean, did you know, Scott that? Oh, it was about one hundred children who died last year, who had been. Visited by or address by these DCFS this year alone. Two year old town to nausea Barnes. Two year old Gia here, Gibbons nine year old Byron Cazenove, and of course, a different. We all know in the last few weeks, we that story has gripped the headlines in the budget addresses the shortcomings of DCFS and other organizations that are doing their best to help the people in our communities. I mean so many of these case workers are out there putting putting themselves in a situation where they can't handle the caseload. I mean, there are some people who are handling up to twenty five cases, and it's overwhelming. Yeah, there was a case years ago in the name of the child. I forget. Are horrible for me. But my the guy who hired me at the Chicago Tribune. I don't wanna Pulitzer prize for writing about this kid who has returned back to a home in was Hong by his mother, who was a terrible horrible story, and he did series of, here's a columnist at the time, Bruce tollways, calmest. He's now the editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune. But at the time was a communist wrote a series of Collins about this case in the need for reforms and they pass them. Funding reforms lower caseloads, things like that, but, over the years, those got diminished, and deluded and went back to search situation where we're now having DCFS, and I don't blame the case workers. I mean, these are not paid much of anything to do a really tough work and the burn out is high. The turnover is high. These people are doing the Lord's work by a lot. And so I don't blame them. So, yeah. So the fact that they're finally coming back to address. These issues in this budget. I think Dirk price, as you know, don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good, which is exactly what I think maybe many Republicans, why they voted for this budget. But none of us here have certainly seen it yet. You know. And that's the other thing about the budget process down there that makes me angry quite frankly. And that's of course, you know, they handed out the last minute. And so you have twenty four hours to look at over people like me really can't. And so it's going to take a couple of weeks to look this over, and see if it says, you know as fair as, as balanced as we, we are being told, and you know, this sorry, excuse me for being cynical. I know. Look, there's I, I get cynical to an I, but I am sorry, but I get inspired by coming down here. And I am I know everybody's interested or or want to do that. Or, or even visit with your legislator. And look imagine if we were able to convince everyone to go into legislator's office, and there were. I think I think people should run for office. I think good people should run for office. There's a lot of reasons not to, but I think we've got to start convincing people, the good people and smart, people engage people to run. I agree, Scott. Yes, come for interrupted. I was intrigued by the story that you brought up about the, the child who had been returned to his parent and and had been those this back in ninety three I'm finding a story. Yes. From ninety three it was around that time that was the, the mother's name was Finnegan. And her three-year-old child had been returned to her by DCFS and. She took out her anger on the child based on her anger at the DCFS. So a lot of changes needed in that agency is Patty said, it's not only overworked but it's dealing with a lot of handcuffs. I think when it comes to what the law says they should be doing as opposed to when I'm sure some of them feel in their hearts after investigating these cases that they should be doing well, and, you know, we talk about also, you know, I mean, there's another side to this whole thing is, do you realize are eight hundred eight.

Are you are accepted the report as the evidence? Yes, you did not question or look at the underlying evidence that supports the conclusions in the report. No, the special counsel's report mentioned ten instances of possible. Obstruction of Justice by the President Trump repeatedly called the investigation a witch-hunt California should be prepared for another busy wildfire season this summer. That's according to the National Interagency Fire center, he acuity science editor Danielle Benton has more the center in Idaho is the national coordinator for wildland firefighting, and it's forecasting that the robust growth of grass and brush, this spring will lead to above average fire potential in the mountains and forests surrounding the bay area and the Sacramento valley. Some good news below normal. Fire potential is expected in the Sierra this summer due to a heavy snow pack and much of the rest of the country can likewise expect normal or below average wildfire season.

Why jump was an ala MEDA, and contra Costa counties, those two counties also added about six thousand housing units not enough to keep up. Meanwhile, San Francisco's population increased by nearly twenty eight hundred and the city developed nearly twenty three hundred new housing units.

"Dan Brady here in studio with with news and plan also here in studio regional planning director for spur San Francisco Bay area, planning and urban research associations, and again, we will go to your calls and emails forthwith here. I'm just gonna ask Dan Brekke, though, because I spoke earlier about the fact that one thing that certain and all this with many uncertainties is the environmental reviews are going forward at least governor Nusa made that perfectly clear that's a stipulation for the federal funding. But if they go through we're talking about many, people think a lot of lawsuits people are concerned that once environmental reviews in place it actually kind of nails down route options then that will put everybody on notice about. Okay. Where's this thing going, and is my ox going to be Gordon if my is going to be? Gord. Where's my lawyer? Which is you know, the lawsuit process you're talking about. It's an interesting thing. I again. Talking to people about this general subject of high speed rail. How come the United States is fifty five years and counting behind Japan on this? And one of the things I was told was, hey, if you wanna understand why there's no high speed rail the northeast corridor where the density would make a lot of sense to have that kind of service. It's all about the litigation that would be unleashed. So yes, that's what's expected here. And there are other aspects of this about whether you our environmental review process, you know, again was just saying this when we were off the air is something that really imposes some really some real difficulties major infrastructure projects looking at a question from PETA wants to know how much money is needed to complete the mayor said to Bakersfield high speed rail. I think it's about ten point six billion has the co- flies in with for the funding for the. Leg. Yeah. I think he was in a twelve point six billion range, but you know, to be honest. I don't know. Dirksen used to say what's a couple billion here. And there it's a lot. I'm joking. He's. Is this a lot? Indeed. Make fun of it. But sometimes those figures are still at square, let me go to our callers. And let's begin rob with you. You're on the air. Good morning. Thank you. This is really a joke. I'm so tired of thinking of all the excuses that California's gonna come up with for why we can never build any big infrastructure projects anymore. We used to build things like the Golden Gate Bridge highway five links L, you know, the the Mexican border all the way up to Oregon. We can't do anything anymore. I knew this was going to happen. We all knew this was going to happen. It was going to become a boondoggle mostly for well-connected people in the construction business or lawyers or somebody this needs to be shaken up. And I'm glad that Gavin Newsom. Stuck a fork in this thing because it's done you guys need to get your act together before we give you any more money. This just passed to stop this process. The way it's become such a joke. Rob appreciate hearing from you. And let's hear from plan on your comments. Why I think the question is it's difficult to do things because we've been constantly hammering at the idea. And litigating the idea that for ever since it began we could have from the outset done a whole made a series of decisions that would have made this much easier. Like, for example, saying that this is a project that's fundamentally can help solve climate change for California. Maybe saying it doesn't need to be subject to the same environmental reviews that we were just talking about that have significant costs and time delay we didn't make that decision. And so we could go back and look at look at steps that could have been taken to make this easier. But I think to your point we used to do big things we still can and part of I think what we have to do. Now in this era of seeming pessimism is remain optimistic that we can actually accomplish these big things that are difficult that have challenges associated with them. And this is a step towards a larger piece. Some some connectors to the green new deal. I mean, eventually they wanna do and this is being done in high speed rail throughout the world, you know, to limit the amount of air travel, or at least a cut into that and diminish it, right? I mean, I think we haven't said yet in this hour, what's the alternative to high speed rail in a none of this conference, which the alternative economic development strategy for the valley? What's the alternative movement of people all throughout all throughout California for this? He'll turn it is actually much more expensive. When you add up additional lanes on I five and ninety nine air expansion of the airports, and of course, then the environmental climate impacts associated with all of this thing. So we we have this target on one particular project. And so we can accomplish that something is actually happening. There is funding for close to two hundred miles within the central valley in hand at this particular moment, we'll let me bring another caller and hand here, Mattie. Join us you're on the air. Good morning. Hi, good morning. Thank you. You know, central central valley politician complain that this is something really designed to benefit San Francisco and Los Angeles, and but essential valley economy is really intimately tied to the he's on the coast and goods and produce that are created in the central valley are there and raw materials for manufacturing come in through the courts. And so, you know, the initial central valley stagnant doesn't make any sense from the perspective of who's actually going to ride the train and from the goals of reducing congestion on the five and reducing reliance on air travel. It really was planned in court for central valley Republicans to just wanted job related to construction. And and now they're complaining that the plan makes no sense. So this is kind of like now road to nowhere that was created for work purposes, rather than planning purposes. And now everybody's saying oh my goodness. What we realized that a trained from Bakersfield to kind of Moore said doesn't really make them so interested in what the guests have to say, I'm interested in what you have to say. Remember patterson? Well, I mean. Where do I begin with that kind of nonsense? I mean, honestly, we have who. I mean this. This hasn't been Portrush distrust thrust on us. This was pushed on us. Jim Acosta, a democrat was the one that pulled all the strings. It was the Obama administration that through a bunch of billions of dollars outta high speed rail authority that messed up what they're doing here, and this notion that somehow we're supposed to be grateful for some kind of economic development. This is economic destruction. If you rip up our agriculture, and if you rip up our city, and then you don't connect us to anything that matters other than a very expensive upgrade to Amtrak. We have been the Guinea pig in this. And so I mean, I am number one and number two. People are so easy to flip around with with the facts, I've been involved in this since I was a mayor refresh. No, I've been here six years in this legislature. I know more about the inside problems of high speed rail than most anybody, including I think the guests that that that keeps happy talking this whole thing he keeps saying that there's money for this. Mercy. Where does he get his his fax? There is no money to do what the governor said they're gonna do and unless he can find billion here, and there this thing ends with a rump railroad from just outside Madeira adjust outside Bakersfield, some revenue you know, about that. We should discover here. I think that's what they suddenly members asking I think clearly we we we make allocations on revenue on an annual basis. And so this is about actually commitment and priority, and I would actually push or ask us the assembly member. You're speaking to this very much in a way that it would be beneficial were to connect to the coast. And so I would I would ask you, then why not then make the case of how we make that happen. Part of this about presenting a larger story of how this can be beneficial. And if we are able to do that we are able to make a commitment as. Estate to some of the callers points, California did things before we built a lot of our highway system with our own funds because we decided those priorities. I think a sea of Japan. What did I ever suggest something about the coast? I mean, people are putting words in my mouth here. And quite frankly, I have other things to do than sit on this phone much longer and had this happy talk nonsense. And absolutely no fact based in any of this. I'm gonna tell you something leadership is vision that cash flows, and this has not had leadership does not cash flow. We have been sold ability goods, none of the projections with respect to the ridership is going to come true. And how in the world do you build a high speed interconnection between LA and San Francisco when you stop and we're said. Snow and Hanford. And Bakersfield, please I we are so tired of being lectured to by people who have utterly no idea of what's been going on in our backyard for a long period of time. And now, we are basically the governor looks at our watch and tells us what time it is. And we're supposed to be grateful that he has recognized this thing between Madeira and and Bakersfield, I we are so sick and tired of being lectured to by people who have utterly no stake in what's going on here and are leading us with a ripped up city. I'm sorry. I I think I need to get on with the business of doing some of the representation up here. And if you don't mind, I think I'm gonna leave a line. We appreciate your spending his time with us, and we will go to more of our callers, we go next to Greg and Oakland, Greg you're on the air. I'll have to shame. I I was just gonna. Question. So I'll ask it. Anyway. The question is how much have we spent two days on this project? What are some of the biggest expenditures and that spending? And is there anything that we could have done differently that would have made this project work? Let me go to dead Brady. Well, at least two point seven billion has been spent that's just the federal share of it. There have been other allocations, for instance, from the. You know, the carbon I'm going to call the carbon tax even though that's not quite the right term for it. And I'm not sure exactly how much from the state side has actually been spent in that yet. There's still a lot of money that has to be spent though, isn't it? I mean, they're talking about station. They're talking about maintenance. There's a lot of talking about the first leg of. Oh, yeah. No. You you need rolling stock. The I mean, this is a highly complex and very advanced piece of technology. Even though it's existed in the world for more than half a century. So yeah, there's a lot that needs to be done. And I'm not sure how many stations I think there are some somewhere in the neighborhood of forty six stations on that segment. You know, that could change depending on whether you know money comes into actually expanded beyond this segment. I'm going to read a tweet from Carl who says the brilliance of high speed rail is in unifying the central valley, enjoying the Sacramento and San Jose the valley can come into its own economically. And politically there are more than enough San Francisco to LA transport options and too much peninsula drama. Now, what about the whole question of passengers? I mean, they keep bringing that up over and over again to embrace. They're going to be enough passengers, you know, this is always an imponderable. Well, listen. I'm going to say something stupid here. You know? When the services there, people will write it. Okay. You can attack any transit service based on ridership based on the fact that transit and transportation services generally need subsidies that includes highways, by the way and. The ridership projections that were originally put out there for the state. You know, the connection from LA to San Francisco are very high. But. We're we're nowhere near even discussing that at this point. Because the you know, the projected date before the governor spoke the other day for for finishing that statewide system was twenty thirty three. You know, my feeling about hearing a date like that. And and ridership estimates is I hope I live long enough to see it again. Why just build up on the idea of ridership what we know from transit throughout the United States and transit and high speed rail globally is one of the keys to ridership is building a lot of stuff around your stations. And that's what we know from Japan know, from European examples, and so in California, the piece that we haven't really discussed is the how do you revitalize the downtowns in the cities and make sure that there's a lot of office buildings hotels housing development around the actual stations..

Ramseyer Porsche to be had a great season. They're going to learn a lot of lessons. Hopefully, they can keep the nucleus core players still there. Defense over thirteen points at defense played very well. And I was just surprised that that offense was not able to muster anything. What was your take the last couple of games with Todd Gurley? Do you think he was hurt? Or do you think there was just I don't know? I just didn't seem right. Just didn't seem like when that's your go-to guy all year long. You know, how you basically take them out of the playbook. Why you know, I'd say maybe it's hurt her mentally something was happening. But he wasn't the same. And you know, obviously Anderson was filling in playing good trying to coach girly. But the Rams are a run and play action team outside run. And when the runs not there the play actions not there, and they're not a New England drop back and throw the football team. Yeah. No, Dan Brady, and the guys finding out how to get it done again you and I did talk about Super Bowl MVP. We both mentioned Julian Edelman and rattle them Brian. I tell you I wish I was I talked to Steve is one of the sharpest NFL guys. And he said, yeah, you know, there's probably better places to put your money. It's usually going to be a quarterback. And I said, yeah. The last time when Brady got it. He didn't feel that. He deserved it. He thought James white should've gotten. I said what about thirty two one on forty one on grog? And I ended up giving it out on my radio show, but not playing it. But the one I did give out with I score not being a touchdown. And there is guys Caskey trotting out there thirty one in a row, and he missiles, and I thought my wife was joking. So I didn't watch it. I just figured okay, I'm going to hear it. There you go plus one seventy right out of the gate be plus money, and she's laughing and she's like, no, I can't believe in. And I see my buddy Noah laughing on the Mike. Wait a minute. Come on. You guys are pulling my leg. I come back, and they go thirty one straight not anymore. That's streak is broken. And so then the next time you lined up for the field. I'm watching this. I'm making sure it goes through. And it did wasn't was a little shaky there at the end. But the good thing is that I did have three and three as my numbers for this. Worse. I got the halftime. And I got the final as well, which was gone nice. Well, that's not bad. You know? Yeah. The winter. You were at the end, right? Yeah. And you were and I add more points in the second half in the first half, which was another good prop that we jumped on. So that was pretty good overall though. Join the game. I love a good defensive game. I love that play by McCorvey that was the game winner. And then that penalty that holy penalty. Really kind of changed the game. I really didn't see that kinda agreed with Romo. Yeah. I I agree with you as far as you know, what? Because the balance the game was in the balance the hallway I to agreed with you as far as you know as long as a one score game or tie game. And both teams have a chance to win. It's still the Super Bowl at the end of the day. You don't care people. Don't look back when the chiefs beat the Viking and say, okay, sixteen six or sixteen seven jets beat the colts. It was a low scoring defensive game. You look in your like you remember who won. And sometimes if they're a big favourite like the colts in Vikings back in those two Super Bowls. You remember who lost as well? But for the patriots, you just remember one for the second hand. Now, they've got six pretty impressive run by ballot. Check and Brady.

And it could be could be coming up in just a little bit. They are at home against Utah state. It's a big game tonight. You know, I'm trying to trying to grab me booklet here. Seven thirty minutes for second place in the whack. All right. So okay. So all right. So I was right. Okay. So it's a good thing because I didn't want you to miss it. I was gonna miss it. I was. All right. What about what about the dogs? Because of course, we're taping. This a little bit before the game tips off. So what about the dogs? You think they're gonna beat Utah state Craig Smith doing a nice job in his first year. There in Logan got to win this game at home. I really do. Gotta take care of business football schedules. Have come out BP. And of course, USC and Fresno state you and I'll be there. Already contacted casper. Good pal. Mike Morlet, Mike, of course, has third row seats on the visitor side. And I said it would be nice to take Panish and have him sit. There those are dynamite seats. So either way I think I'll probably have press passes there. But I want to be able to sit back and enjoy that game with you and be a great way to start the opener. So ironically, two years in a row this year USC opened with UNLV next year. They open up with Fresno state on Saturday. August the thirty first. The BULLDOGS will show up. I have no doubt those show up BP. And I know you'll show up and all your Fresno state alumni will be there. And I would think Fresno state probably travel's pretty well down to the Coliseum that game this holiday weekend. But last time show, well, the time before the Reggie Bush when we had him beat. They were twenty thousand strong, plus, yes. And Pat hill and the guys. Yeah, they they may have been shafted in that game just a little bit. But Bri when you look back at that game. That's still one of the greatest college football games that I remember seeing in my life. Great game, great atmosphere, pack calcium and Reggie Bush. One is that night. There you go. Julius Campbell got to get this in their Julius from remember the titans passed away a couple of days ago that was pretty unique movie. That was one of my favorites. Strong side left side strong side. Those two guys Gary Bertilla Julius Campbell from that team. The titans back in the day Bri sports movies is that up there amongst your favorites. Because remember the titans is my favorite Friday night lights was right up there as well. And I did get to interview Tim McGraw who's in that movie. Over the old time. The Babe Ruth Lou Garrick movies. I love the Jim Thorpe ball American movie. Yeah. You know, what I am trying to remember if I do not believe that I've seen that? And I do, you know, I do Lancaster plant, Jim Thorpe. And now that you say that I do remember saying Lou Garrick. All right. So those are some I'd have to go back and find them wonder if they. Forty north Dallas forty was a good one with Nick Nolte. That was probably shows the way that you know, it was back in the day kind of crazy Mark Davis playing the he here's a perfect quarterback had a little bit of Joe Nemeth thin, you know, with that with that lifestyle, and and hoosiers. Hoosiers was up there. No doubt. I do love that hinchelfield house and Gene Hackman. Yeah. I thought that was outstanding as well. Good movies about the program. The program familiarized me on that one. Who's at football movie text. It was called Texas. So they made some gee was good. Okay. Because and then of course. Boy, what's the one. Oh, yeah. Died Friday night lights Friday night lights is a great one. Yeah. That's permian. And all right. We'll get into some of these movies throughout the season coming up. But right now, let's go and turn our attention to some sports and legal stuff. And this is right in your backyard. As far as the California court coming down now. And and the coroner saying that the fans struck in the head by a foul ball during the dodgers game. Died of the blunt force injured blunt force injury trauma, seventy nine year old lady. I mean, what a Goldblum was her last name. And and what? Iran. Fifty nine Dan averse, her seventy ninth birthday. I moved amazing time. And she was there with not only your husband. But also her sister in law and brother, and they had pictures about an hour before the game. And she's not the first one to died from complications of being struck by a ball at Dodger Stadium actually happened back in nineteen seventy as well did a little research there. And I saw that ball that Manny Mota had hit. It also hit a fourteen year old boy back in nineteen seventy. And I remember that happened. Yes. He that was I I really wasn't not familiar with that. And there is also the only other one that I saw was Clarence steak Meyer thirty two he died a day after being hit by a ball. That was thrown at Griffith stadium by Washington. Senators third baseman, Sherry Robertson. He had fielded a ball. And then threw it into the stands and it hit this gentleman steak Myron the head thirty two years old. He died a day later, but Alan fish, the fourteen year old at Dodger Stadium. Diem died four days after he was hit in the head with the foul. Ball may sixteenth nineteen seventy Dodger Stadium after motor who is batting against Gaylord Perry hit a liner down the first base line near the dugout. So I mean that is it does happen. Now. Ironically, this is the for last year was the first year that the major league teams thirty of the thirty two teams. They all put this the protective netting around a good Prussian. Did they put her far enough? That's the thing. So now from a legal standpoint because I know there's stuff on your ticket stubs are Nancy says, you know, we're not responsible for anything that happens. If you're struck by anything that I would think with an deter, you know, with an attorney like Brian Panish is not going to stand up in court. You know, the the law the waiver on that is on the back of the ticket. That's been centuries old law in you gotta show that they were maybe negligent in the way, they put up this the the netting. So Brian if you had this case now, you would just you would come out and you'd say look the netting. That's great that you put it up..
Is Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's engagement all for show?
"With we call them China's that is Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. I feel like that relationship is totally fake. But I cannot figure out for the life of me. What is in it for Nick Jonas? Do you have any light? You can shed on this matter. You know, I think it's it's basically this goes back to what we were talking about earlier about, you know, doing a favor for somebody. And I think that he's doing the paper for Bianca. And also, I think he's doing a family who, you know. Nick has definitely since the Jonas brothers. Have you know, disbanded Joe's done okay for himself. But I mean nNcholas had some some big success. And then Kevin, you know, just basically selling off assets, right and left. Dan Brady of the Jonas brothers. So I think that they want to have this reality show where Joe is getting married to Turner, and then Priyanka, and you know, angle through this. And I think that that's basically the gist of it. And I think that it's very much. A mutually beneficial kind of thing Priyanka is very very thirsty. So willing to do it Nick willing to do it because he wants to help out his family, and it makes him look a certain way. Okay. So so as this is the question that we keep on asking. Because again, we're on board with the facts that Jonas is a farce. But the question that we keep on asking is like how long does this go on for? I mean, do they end up getting married and not that you have a crystal ball and know this, but I mean do relationships go all the way to they end up with babies sometimes, Well, I I don't know what the baby. But I mean, you know, the people end up married from time to time, but it's pretty rare. General you go through the engagement you get as much as you can maybe there'll be this reality show, they'll do that. And then all of a sudden, you know. They won't be around. I think you also have to remember in this whole reality show thing with cabinet that is why kind of they did a reality show. I think that when she married him that she thought it was gonna be reality show all the time and then also decided to get in the contracting business. You know, I think it's mutually beneficial. Let's just help everybody get along. And I think that the only true couple in the mix it. Well, Kevin is white. But Joe, and Sophie, although, you know, Joe will cause he's he's a groupie you won't be afraid to say Hello. But that's that's the only true coupling. I believe out of the the two
