They're saying, Look, we've already had if you think about it legalized gambling in Georgia for almost 30 years Now, this all just goes to hope. And this is just more money for hope.

Measure J approved by Los Angeles County voters
"Since the official election day, but L. A county is moving ahead quickly with while the ballot measures approved by local voters measure J. It requires that at least 10% of Lake County's unrestricted general funds about $350 million a year, right now be spent on housing mental health treatment. And alternatives to incarceration, the goal to reduce recidivism and help trouble people through treatment rather than the jail system. Tomorrow, the county Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss setting up a measure J Advisory committee. Joining us now to talk about where things go from here is Isaac Brian, executive director of the Black Policy Project and co chair of the re Imagine L. A County group. Ah, coalition that supported Measure J. Good morning. Good morning. Shane is going to be so good to have you here now. Ah, lot of people whose introduction to measure J was on their sample ballot may have thought that it came out of the recent rallies. We saw the spring over issues like Racial justice. But this is not a new idea. Very briefly. How far does the concept behind measure J go back when it comes to L. A county? When did this idea sort of first start percolating? Absolutely and Albert is a combination of both. So from the last decade we have been organizing against the size and scope of our jail system, one of the largest jail system in the world. It's also the largest mental health provider on the West Coast. And instead of thinking about treatment and care, we often cycle folks who need support to our county jail system. And so here in Los Angeles County of the last two years Set up a civilian oversight commission to oversee the sheriff's department. We set up an office of diversion reentry. We cancel the contract to build two new jail facilities in the last couple of years, and instead we launched in alternatives to incarceration Work group. Explored very deeply. What a continuum of care might look like should look like in. That work group was chaired by Dr Bob Ross, the California endowment and teaching both community voices and system stakeholders. That report was submitted to the board. In February. There's a lot of groundwork that led up to this moment, but the the unrest of this year of this spring and into the summer definitely spurred this To action. I think the foundation was laid. But that was kind of like the catalyst that let us know that this is the moment we have to push. And if you saw your sample ballot, you saw Patrice Cullors as one of the signatories as well as myself. Patrice is one of the co founders of Black lives matter. And so there's a lot of overlap between the lethal encounters we saw earlier this year and and how this ultimately came to be. Under measure J. What kind of programs will be eligible for funding? And who specifically? Will those programs try to help Are you looking at, you know, say young people trying to target young people specifically before they might get into trouble with the law? Something like that. Absolutely so pending the board's approval of ah of emotion tomorrow that would establish an advisor group to really oversee this process. There are a lot of buckets of eligibility, including mental health support behavior. How support Job training and placement, affordable housing, but also used development is critical. Right now we spend $280,000 per year per young person to incarcerate them here in Los Angeles County. We cage then Children right here at home, and we do it in a very expensive, right. Part of measure J will be looking at ways that we can provide opportunity supported development for young people outside of the juvenile halls in camps and in a way that produces healthy and thriving outcomes. What I can tell you is that there are some agencies that are prohibited. I'm using Measure J funding, and that is the Sheriff's Department, the district attorney's office, the cords or the probation Department. This is CareFirst valid initiative, and it's got to be rooted in structures of opportunity. What kind of groups are going to be behind the program's applying for measure J funding? Are these going to be government programs? Are we talking about like local nonprofits saying, Hey, we got what we think is a great idea to put. I don't know a a shelter or an after school program into effect in this part of the community. I think you'll see a mixed method approach their awesome county agencies and programs that are working incredibly effectively that need to be scaled up on specifically thinking of the office of Diversion and Retentions Transitional housing model. Which has slashed recidivism rate and proven much better outcomes than anything in the sheriff's Department of the Carcel system is done. We need to scale of all of those county infrastructures and behavior, health, mental health and have the support that we know are working, but also A new way of life. The entire city of coalition and others have shown community based reentry models that are working incredibly well. There's a lot of use development models as well. So I think we need to be thinking holistically. About where these phones Khun go because it's all about producing the best outcome for our communities. And if the government has structures in place to do that, we need to support that. This community has structure in place that air doing that that we definitely would support that as well. We need to be thinking holistically about this. Who's going to decide who gets the money. And who doesn't? Is it going to be all county leaders? Or you going to see members of the community involved in making those decisions as well? And a measure called for transparency and accountability and community representation. And I think the board of Supervisors, who are ultimately tasked with drafting the implementation process for this are very aware that community representation has to be at the table. There's ballot measure was put on by the people. Up specifically people who have been most impacted by our systems of Harmon. They should also have a seat at this decision making table and it's my intention that the Board of Supervisors intention to make sure that table is inclusive and has all the stakeholders. Who have a vested interest in this process. So are we talking about like, I don't know. Mental health professionals or community leaders or people who help to provide services to young kids. Are we talking about that? that? They They could could be be serving serving on on this this advisory advisory committee committee and and saying saying to to the the soups soups no, no, none none up. up. You You gotta gotta put put money money over over here. here. This This is is where where we we really really need need it. it. They They could could I I be. be. I I would would encourage encourage everyone everyone to to look look at at the the motion motion That's That's coming tomorrow. From what I've heard. There's a 17 Person Advisory committee with Five dedicated for community representation, five dedicated for those who work in insisting with Karen opportunity within the county, Already a couple of suits for labor organizations that are going to be impacted by The movement of funds in this way and really just trying to make sure that this table as all of the voices of the folks who need to be added the only voices who won't be added of those who are ineligible for Measure J Fund. Isaac Brian is executive director of the Black Policy Project. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. Really good to have you Thank you for having me. You're listening to morning
Los Angeles County voters pass Measure J to divert more money toward social justice programs
"Racial equity advocates in Los Angeles are cheering the passage of Measure. J. Charter amendment will require that at least 10% of L. A county's unrestricted general funds be spent on housing, mental health treatment and alternatives to incarceration. KCR W's Gerald Statesman has more Tony officials estimate that measure J could lead to the reallocation of nearly half a billion dollars in funding. None of that money can go toe law enforcement or correctional programs. Proponents argued that diverting funds to social services is essential to correcting racial injustices. Supervisor Sheila Cule was among the majority of supervisors who voted in August to put the Charter amendment on the ballot. That followed months of protests.

San Francisco's Preparations and Response to COVID-19

That's why she's urging city residents that he'd public health orders to curb the spread and community transmission of the Corona virus Breed Warren's should the pandemic continue beyond next year. It would drain more city resource is Cape Phase, Christina Honest that reports San Francisco Mayor London Breed says she plans to spend $446 million to address the Corona virus pandemic this year through June 2021. That includes $56 million to boost mobile testing sites and the most impacted neighborhoods like the latte, next community in the Excelsior in the mission and the black community in the Bay View and Tenderloin. Reed ticks off a list of services that money will go towards this fiscal year. It includes $16.5 million in funding for communications and operations. 185 million for our health response, 62 million for food distributions and programs that are pit stops. 183 million for housing and shelter programs. It's important to remember that this funding really assumes that we don't see any major surges. If that happens, we will need to divert. Even more resource is and that's why it is so critical that everybody does its part, their part to stop the spread. Thiss stretches beyond June, and there's going to be even more of a drain on our budget next year. But the mayor warns the workable budget relies on federal reimbursements and cares Act dollars. San Francisco, like other cities and states is suffering a deficit due to the pandemic Breeds budget relies on reserves to close an estimated $1.5 billion budget gap over the next two years. It also uses $93 million from the General Fund. San Francisco has been on the government's watch list since late July due to increasing Corona virus infections as breed lists the latest numbers of corona virus infections and deaths.

We are currently carrying for 88 San Franciscans with covert 19 in our local hospitals. That is a slight drop from last week. Remember, it is an almost 25% reduction from our peak in July. We're currently finding about 85 new cases of covert 19 every day. That number has started to drop from its high point a few weeks ago, but it is still a cause for great concern. Anything above 50 new cases per day puts us in the red Zone. On our highest alert level. And we have been there for the past seven weeks. City officials are pushing
"general fund" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Wanted to come back on and give some clarity and perspective of what we're seeing. So that happens just after nine. Tempe is considering cuts to its budget because of covert 19. They have roughly $13.8 million in proposed cuts to the General Fund, which covers the biggest chunk of their day to day business in the city of Tempe. So, with the $13.8 million cut, it represents nearly 6% of their general fund budget. But where do you think they're proposing the cuts? So these are the services that will not be cut. Code enforcement because we all understand that's deadly if we don't have court code enforcement people on the pro Ambulance Services Technical Rescue Team Co Honest Recreation Center. Staff training will not be cut and park and custodians and cleaning will not be cut. So what are the areas most likely to see hiring freezes and reductions. The 1st 2 should make you shake your head and laugh. Police. And social services. What could possibly go wrong? Library services, recreational sports leagues, Museum programs, municipal utilities. I will tell you that if you want to see a spike in crime, and you want to see a spike in trouble, not immediately. But longer term. Get rid of recreational sports leagues and things that keep kids out of trouble. Get rid of those programs start to funding the soccer leagues. How many times when you drive by a soccer field and you see hundreds of kids? And they're playing or practicing soccer back where I grew up in my time it was football. In the state of Florida and in many other places, but it is almost a religion. And kids are tracked in and and I love this about it. The competition level In Pop Warner football keeps kids focused on a goal instead of on trouble they could be getting in whether it's football, baseball in a traveling team, girls and and league and club volleyball. It is something that is a goal whether or not they ever go onto a collegiate level or professional beyond that, getting them through those formative years in a team sport and focused on something other than trouble. Is always a good thing. So if you are going to cut recreational sports leagues, social services and the police, it's a recipe for disaster. Now, they say, of course, that this funding cut for the police has nothing to do with the defund the police movement. You're going to keep code enforcement fully funded. Nothing against code enforcement officers, but you honestly driving in your vehicle if you live in Tempe, which is more important to the sustainability of Tempe in the short term because of fund funding issues with covert 19 You wanna wait longer for a building inspection? Whatever. What other things fall under code enforcement. This is where the priorities make me laugh. Every person on the planet. That I know of any responsible person has a budget. And you pay your bills that.

The future of mobility is going to be decided right here in the state is a planet dot com to find out why that's P.. L. A. N. E. A._T.. Dot Com if you WANNA get broadband access to every state you gotta know the local laws from American public media yeah. This is marketplace tech demystify digital economy. I'm molly would the digital economy as we like to call it over here depends pretty heavily on access access to the Internet and that is still not a solved problem here in the United States over thirty percent of Americans don't have access to broadband Internet which is defined as twenty five megabits per second or higher. That's according to research released Tuesday by the N._p._d.. Group the Pew Charitable Trusts has an initiative should've broad-band definitions like in Alabama for example broadband speed is defined as only ten megabits per second. If your network is busy that's barely fast fast enough to stream net flicks and hi. Def Katherine dewitt manages the Broadband Research Initiative for Pew Charitable Trusts. She told me state policy is a huge deal. When it comes comes to expanding broadband access state policy matters because lack of access to broadband is a national issue but it is felt at the local level and states states have taken a pretty aggressive approach to closing gaps in access particularly over the last five years we've seen a significant uptick in legislation since two thousand fifteen eighteen <hes> and what we can take away from this is not only do state policymakers see and feel that immediate urgency <hes> lack lack of broadband access? They're saying it's important to things like education healthcare and economic developments but they're also saying this. This is what we want our state to look like they're setting goals and then they're laying out a path and a framework for how to achieve those goals. Let's just dive into some of what is in the tool. Some of the different approaches does that states are taking like. Could you give me an example two totally different approaches that states might have taken so going into this research we knew that states <hes> face similar challenges oranges and increasing access to broadband <hes> but we learned that there are also taking similar approaches but adapting them to their needs. That's really where those categories came from. Those groupings things <hes> if you look at goals for example <hes> you have states like Minnesota and West Virginia where they're statewide broadband goals are focused. I'm border to border universal coverage thing you look at a state like California <hes> that has a goal to connect ninety eight percent of the population in each one of its roughly fleet twenty regions. How do you hope that a tool like this can help close the digital divide in terms of broadband access while this tool is actually the first step in <unk> are ongoing research on how states are addressing gaps and broadband access so for us this was about understanding that fifty state landscape of broadband deployment laws ause and it provides the basis for our next level of research which is a deeper examination of how states are addressing those gaps in access. What we hope so is that <hes> users will be able to use this tool to learn what other states are doing and how they're actually doing it. Katherine dewitt manages the Broadband Research Search Initiative for the Pew Charitable Trusts. We've got a link to that new tool and some analysis about spending per state at our website marketplace tech dot Org <music> for some related links so this tool is super new obviously and Pew hopes that policymakers and local governments will jump in and start creating some more analysis and comparison and of course. They'll be publishing their own pieces. The first one that I mentioned there is about how states let's fund their broadband projects whether it's grants or loans or general fund kind of things or some creative funding apparently Illinois makes Internet service providers providers pay into a special offer called the digital divide elimination fund and it uses that to pay for broadband buildouts and in Virginia a legal settlement. Element with tobacco producers is paying to build more Internet. Look I'm not saying this isn't a little walkie over here but it is interesting. Also I gotta be honest. I'm still hung up on that ten megabits per second in Alabama and probably some other states too. I haven't made it through the entire tool yet but Alabama's regulation also says I._S._P.'s can call their upload at speeds broadband at one megabit per second so basically if you're at home trying to upload some photos to facebook or anything to the cloud ever you'd be doing that at speeds ten times slower than the slowest four G. Cell Phone connection set it and forget it because it's GonNa take all night now. The speed question is so controversial that even though Pugh is using the twenty five megabits per second speed guideline which is set by the Federal Communications Commission Network congestion usually means actual actual speeds are nowhere near that fast and again a four g phone connection is faster than that on the best providers. It is such a big discrepancy that while Pew says says twenty one million Americans don't have broadband Microsoft put out its own map of high speed Internet access back in April. It said the real number of people people without appropriately fast Internet access for today's economy is more like one hundred sixty three million in the United States alone.

A lot is just an entry point into this world, especially if you're new to tech investing. I think it's like if the overall mission thesis of companies making life more affordable that resonates need like coming in early. I think that's a great product right for our core fund. We're we're not fundraising. Now, I think with that one. It's much more about making sure everyone who invests in it is also a strategic resource for the companies. You know, I think that you know, what we believe is that the funding world is getting crowded, right? So, you know, we feel like it's it's in many. Are obligated to the founders were backing to have our capital be strategic to not just to our team. But through the actual investors. So it's it's not to close the door. But I think that's just much more of a personal conversation about the companies were building and how they could get involved whereas cars fifty fund is much more about just making that whole batch of companies accessible to angel investors. Roger that said last question. Yeah. And I said last question, I know that when I say that I never completely own that it's going to be the last question. So here's kind of the last one. I just have for is that the VC space is crowded does that mean that the client the current climate is that there's lots of money out there wanting to reinvest back into businesses. Yeah. I look I think there's a there's a few different aspects of this one is you know, you compared to when we started this ten years ago. Now entrepeneurship is trendy right. So you have a massive supply of people who want to be entrepreneurs, right? Yeah. What also happened was you know, you started the C E kind of public visibility of of investors. Be increase. Right. You beat you even the movie the social network, you know, the VC's our movie stars now. So ending them career became high-profile. Almost like I you know, I was young. But I imagine, you know, the way they talk about the big short banking in in the wolf of Wall Street era, right? Yeah. You start to see kind of the glamour of field pickup. And also, I think at a macro level. You know technology is entering all of these different industries. So, you know, even like sovereign wealth funds that predominantly used to focus on oil. You know, all everyone wants a piece of tech. So what that's created is a massive supply of investor capital that wants to get in the game and is doing that some are doing it through direct investing. So they're kind of creating their own, you know, venture arm and some are doing this by investing in funds. I think the problem is when some of this is boosted by trend weight, which is something similar happening. I think in the crypto and blockchain world, I think it's incredibly powerful technology innovation, but a lot of people enter the game more because of sentiment and Trent right? So when something is when when you know, there's wind in the sails from the trend, you just have a lot of people that are entering it. And they probably won't be in this business in five years or ten years. How crazy is that is that blockchain business where people are like I'm watching a couple of people. I know that are I don't know by twenty supercomputers. This is the person I know that these twenty supercomputers got an engineer that program than just right to scrape the internet for coins coins, but to make coins, and I'm like what like it's amazing. And I don't know it's like small dollars every day. But it's adding up what what is that we had a major crash yesterday though. I mean, it's all the it's a look I think it's it's one of the biggest technology breakthroughs. You know, maybe ever certainly possibly could be right decentralizing everything. But you have these these insiders who ending truly understand in want to build things using the technology..

"Voting starts today in the state. You're listening to me and Tennessee you can vote today, and my guess congresswoman, Marsha Blackburn. Have just tweeted out. She hopes you go and find your early voting location and go vote for her to become your next United States, Senator congresswoman Blackburn, how goes your race for the Senate. Welcome. Well, thank you so much in the race is going so well, we are encouraged the we know that the only poll the poll on November six than way are working hard to make certain that they're on the upside of that. Now, I never tend to pay much attention to one poll, but I look at a trend congresswoman Blackburn and last September ending on nine fifteen CNN said you were behind your by five. But then Fox News came back a couple of weeks later, they said, Marsha Blackburn up by five then CBS news came back a few days later, and they said, Marsha Blackburn up by eight and then the New York Times came in two days ago and said you're up by fourteen what's going on in Tennessee. You're you're surging away with it. Our positive message is getting out and people focusing on that they want to make certain that they continue to have more constitutional justices and judges they want to keep the tax cuts. They want to build the wall. They want to make certain that you're getting regulatory relief that we're dealing with the out of control spending. And they're remembering some of the things fell British and get as governor. Like things like increasing the state budget by forty percent and giving fifty one thousand illegal aliens, valid state issued taxpayer-funded dragging certificates. They're remembering that, he drains the road fine and spent that money on on on the general fund, and these are all things that they oppose. They also are paying attention to the fact that when he was governor he had two different tracks for handling sexual harassment allegations and claims if you were to fill those matters were handled privately and the documents were shredded and others went through the regular steak process. So people don't want that he did those things they're remembering that, they know that if he were to go to the US Senate that he would be his boss would be Chuck Schumer, and that he would have friends. Named Dianne Feinstein Bernie Sanders allergic book, Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala, Harris in Tennessee and would never go to the polls and vote for those individuals. But they know about the Phil Bredesen's is a vote for those individual. So to be clear, Marsha Blackburn. You would have voted to confirm Justice cabinet, and you would have voted to confirm Neal Gorsuch? Absolutely. And I had no problem making up my mind about that. Because tennesseans do not want activist judges good construction. This constitutional was set abide by big US constitution ended the rule of law. Now my opponent took him eighty eight days to make his mind up on forty two. And after the vote is cast. He said, well, I would have voted. Yes. And then, of course, the video came out and shows that was probably not a truthful statement. He said that for political reasons, and that was very revealing. What is saying that I do see some signs of desperation, and Phil Bredesen's congresswoman Blackburn. He's now offered to meet with President Trump. In other words, he's going down for the third time. And he's got a hand above the water saying, hey, anybody pay attention to me. I don't think President Trump's going to be invited into the rose garden anytime soon. President Trump's with you and Mitch McConnell's with you. And I guess it comes down to I always have faith in the average voter understanding that the control the Senate goes to ever has fifty one votes, right? Trying to and Tennessee. I feel more there. It would be a vote for the Democrats. And he is trying to as you said this is fine of desperation. Then he says I'll go meet with the president. Or, you know, he put the tenure in the wind which way falling and says, yes, I would have voted for Cavanaugh traces said if he were in charge of his friend Hillary Clinton that he gave thirty three thousand four hundred dollars doing wanted her to be president. If she were president he wouldn't have somebody like injustice Cavanaugh, dying Feinstein, chairman of the judiciary committee. You would not have somebody like the Justice cavenaugh dot fall because they would not allow it. And that's what makes it as they seem to think safe for Democrats to say one thing, they're campaigning. And do another thing indicate now last question congresswoman Blackburn, and by the way, vote Marcia is her Twitter handle vote. Marsha you can follow her on Twitter. You can go to Marsha Blackburn. What is the website congresswoman? Marsha Blackburn dot com. Marsha blackburn. To go there. They can keeping watch and they can contribute because right now, you're getting flooded with money, right? You're getting all the outside groups are coming in to try and take the Democrats can't win the Senate. If they don't beat you. Well, that's exactly right. Mine is kind of that beachhead race if he will. And we know that and yes, you're like George Soros Tom Steyer, all the liberal friends from the left coast and the east coast star. They're out there pouring money into this racing. So we did need the help local early voting started. And I always like to emphasize this. It's going on in Arizona with our friend, Martha mcsally, we're gonna have a couple of great congresswoman, become senators. She urging people to go you want people to do early voting. And there's a your Twitter feed has a link to it. How many tennesseans typically do that? And how are you tracking it pretty closely? We are going to think tracking it and following get of course. And yes, we do want people to go early. We'd get an early vote rally on track. Last night. We were all over west Tennessee yesterday and reaching out meeting with voters making certain at making. Are are finding that they're showing off if they're taking their friend remembering this is very important rice at a very important and critical time, and we need them to get these votes in early. You'd never know somebody could end up being y'all on election day yours. Child or that had to make an unexpected trip. So we're saying guests that vote in the south. That's exactly right last question. The economy across the country three point seven percent unemployment four point two percent growth that Alan Greenspan on yesterday. He loves the animal spirits is. He said that the president and the tax plan has unleashed is Tennessee even better than the national numbers. Yes, we are better than the national numbers because I like that fight against the state income tax, and we don't have a state income tax here and has been shrinking government since I lead that fi back in the early two thousand what you have seen. If this Tennessee now has the fastest growing. Household income of any state in the south east. We are in the top five nationwide. And hateful. No, they're going to get wage growth. John a get healthy economy and a right size government, Tennessee, Marsha Blackburn. Always a pleasure congresswoman follow her on Twitter at vote. Marsha go to Marsha Blackburn dot com to contribute saying touch with their campaign keeper in the field. We absolutely need to win that race and she fourteen points up, and we love that kind of news. We love that kind of news also left for people to remember alliance defending freedom has done great work in Tennessee and forty nine other states alliance defending freedom is in fact, just exactly what Marsha Blackburn is a winner. They have been winning and winning and winning and winning and winning Jack Phillips masterpiece cake shop Pernell Stutzman in Washington state. All they do is win. And we like that because they are the largest. Legal defense firm in the country, and they provide free legal services to people that needed Justice week another victory for individual rights. Thanks to our friends at alliance defending freedom. The city of Atlanta has agreed to pay one point two million dollars to settle a lawsuit. Brought by eighty on behalf of former fire chief Kelvin Cochran who was fired for his religious beliefs after wrote a men's bible study on his personal time while cheap Cochran prevailed if his firing could happen in the bible belt of the south. It could happen to you where you live and work, and there will be more battles ahead. According to alliance offending freedom senior counsel, David corkman. I do I see more challenges in the future. And I think the reason for that is and it's quite ironic. It happened in the chiefs case in then all of these other cases, you know, we hear so much today about tolerance inclusivity. It was the exact reason that the city of Atlantic gave for firing the chief, and it's quite ironic to say that we're being inclusive and tolerant firing someone who disagrees with our official. Use the that's what actually happened. And so that's that does happen. And when it happens to you or someone, you know, you can call and defending freedom..
